Tianji, “the LinkedIn of China”, has an English version. Here was my experience. I clicked “English” in the upper right corner and proceeded to fill in the registration form. I clicked “Sign Up Now” and was presented with the registration form again, this time in Chinese. I filled it out again and hit the registration button, but was told my name didn’t validate as it wasn’t in Chinese characters. I gave up and left the site.

Later when I tried it again, once I got to the Chinese registration form I clicked “English” in the corner and was presented the registration form in English, which I filled in and registered successfully. The site makes you click “English” even after you continue to click “English” the initial time.

Poor user experience and I don’t see them growing that much because of it.
