Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Do you have consent from the owner of the original copyright to make a derivative work of their copyrighted material? A translation of their copyrighted material is considered derivative works and as such you need their consent to make such use. You need to contact the publisher and get written consent before you can make the translation and then file it for publication in China.
