Birds in Chinese?

My Strange Horizons story Birds appears to have been translated into Chinese and published here, along with a birds graphic. Pretty much a mystery to me.

If you’d rather read Birds translated into Chinese (I assume by a human?) and then back to English again (by Google’s machinery), you can give that a go. The last line in that new hybrid version is “My mind floated the infinite regret.” Which brings to mind the Airborne Toxic Event from DeLillo’s White Noise.
