In the early Chinese translation of Manifesto of the Communist Party, a large number of terms were introduced from Japanese. In the translation, terms have been in the process of evolution in both Chinese version and its English counterpart. Take the term "proletarian" as an example, both versions involve the change from "Heimin" to "Musansya", in which "Heimin" originated from ancient Chinese with the meaning of "ordinary people, people". In recent times, however, the term was endowed with a new meaning in Japanese, which was transferred into Chinese and took the place of its early counterpart "Heimin". Hence, the influence of the Japanese translation of "proletarian" on Chinese versions of Manifesto of the Communist Party is worth exploring.
