Slightly different sort of question for everyone today, hope someone can point me in the right direction.

I'm trying to do research on the Buddhist Jataka tales, originally written in the Pali Canon. I've been able to find many reliable translations of the Jataka tales in English, but would like to strengthen my research by drawing upon Chinese texts as well. As far as I can tell, the Jataka tales are called "佛传故事" in Chinese. I'm far from an expert at navigating the Chinese web, but what I'd ideally like to find is a PDF translation (preferably in simplified, but I'll take whatever I can get) issued by a Chinese university or museum of this text.

I know this is a long-shot, but if anyone could help me find this resource it would be much appreciated.
