Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.

When Bin County was first established during the Qin Dynasty, it was called Qi County (simplified Chinese: 漆县; traditional Chinese: 漆縣; pinyin: Qī Xiàn). Later, the name was changed to Bin County (simplified Chinese: 邠县; traditional Chinese: 邠縣; pinyin: Bīn Xiàn). In 1964, the name was changed once more, into its current form.
In its current form, Bin County is named for Bin, the former home where Buzhu settled the Ji clan which became the Zhou dynasty.
