印刷术发明之前，思出书新书的学者必须一字一字地抄写。北宋时期，经过多年的实验，毕昇发明了活字印刷术(movable-type printing)。他把汉字刻在一小块泥胚(pieces of clay)上，加热汉字直到其造成硬的活字。印书时,东谈主们按法例将活字摆在沿途，印出陈迹。印刷完后，他们把字分开，以后类似使用。这种本事既经济又省时。中国的活字印刷术领先向东传至朝鲜和日本，之后向西传至波斯(Persia)和埃及，临了传遍全球。活字印刷术发明促进了寰球列国的文化换取。
Before printing was invented，a scholar had to copy characters one by one if he wanted to publish a new book. During the Northern Song Dynasty, Bi Sheng invented movable-type printing after many years of experimentation. He engraved the characters on small pieces of clay and heated them until they became hard movable characters. When printing a book，people placed the moveable characters in order into a whole block and then ran off a print. After printing, they took the block apart and reused the characters later. This method was both economical and time-saving. China's movable-type printing first spread eastward into Korea and Japan, then westward into Persia and Egypt, and at last, around the world. The invention of movable-type printing greatly promoted cultural exchanges among countries all over the world.
