    Hello, my friends,

    I was wondering whether introduction is needed in the sentence:

    In most Chinese text dealing with the introduction of Sima Qian, the text falls into 3 categories.

    Context: the introduction is like an entry in Wikipedia.

    I would suggest something like: In most Chinese language biographies of Sima Qian, the text is divided into three parts.

    Would it possible to drop language in your sentence but still keep it idiomatic.
