社会信用Social Credit"Refers to the status of natural persons with full civil capacity, legal persons and unincorporated organizations' compliance with legally prescribed obligations, or performance of contractual obligations, in social and economic activities."

While now used as a term of art, for a general policy directive on record keeping and analysis, the connotation may be different in English and Chinese.

The Chinese does not necessarily imply interpersonal relations in 'social', but could easily refer to the public or society [ e.g. 社会资本 literally ‘social capital’ does not share the English meaning of ‘ networks of relationships among people who live and work in a particular society creating economic value and enabling that society to function effectively;’ but refers to capital that was invested by members of the general public.]

Similarly, 'xinyong' or credit, can mean 'believable' as in 讲信用 [literally 'talks credit', but means, one's speech can be trusted].

'Social credit' was originally used in a broader sense, meaning 'public trust', in the discussion of increasing trust between market actors.
