  abstract = {Scholars have for several decades now assumed that most if not virtually all of the Indic texts transmitted to China in the first few centuries of the Common Era were written in a Northwest Middle Indic language widely known as Gandhari. Much of the data for this hypothesis has derived from the reconstructed pronunciation of Chinese transcriptions of Indian proper names and Buddhist technical terms contained in the early Chinese Buddhist translations. This paper, inspired by the recent brilliant work of Seishi Karashima, attempts to reexamine this assumption from another angle. A closer look at problems in the translation process itself reveals that the collaboration of the Chinese members of the early translation teams may have been instrumental in formulating the final shape these renderings assumed. Such a realization will require us to reassess our use of these documents for the history of Indian Buddhist languages and texts.},
