This page lists my crude thoughts about Chinese translations of CGoL terms, which may not be generally agreed and therefore should not be cited officially.

Part 2

In organic chemistry, many reactions and reagents are named in honor of their developers. Likewise, there are some patterns named after corresponding discoverers in CGoL. They are listed in Category:Patterns found by (person). However, no unified convention is set about the choice between surname (family name) and forename (given name), and both exist in current naming scheme per this thread.

A simple translation rule is that partial transliteration of the surnames will be preferred in Chinese pattern names, except when that causes confusion, in which case full transliteration will be used (e.g. Elkies's p5 and Scot's p5, Gosper glider gun and Gotts dots).
