FEATURE: Translator, teacher Liu Wan-lai dies

By Wu Po-hsuan and Jonathan Chin  /  Staff reporter, with staff writer

Liu’s daughters, Liu Pi-chen (劉碧真) and Liu Pi-yu (劉碧玉), said that although he eventually earned enough money from his translations to live comfortably, he continued to tutor people in Japanese and translate books out of a sense of obligation, donating his commission to charitable causes and managing a charitable foundation operating out of Dalin.

Liu Pi-chen said her father battled diabetes and lung cancer for the last three years of his life, but on the day of his death, he merely complained of slight discomfort before reclining to rest, passing away peacefully.
