From the Five Works of Maitreya also Ratngotravibhaga has been translated into chinese, see the wikipedia article about it It has been highly influential in the far east too.

An article about Maitreya in China and elsewhere,

What is the source of your list ? It is simply false, totally false! Please see the wikipedia article about Ratnagotravibhaga. It says there:" The text and its commentary are preserved in tibetan and chinese translations."

Maybe you don't know about what are called Maitreya rebellions in Chinese history? Their existence proves that there was some serious disagreement between Maitreya movement and the other, legally established, buddhist schools in China, who maybe were not that impartial toward the the Maitreya movement and their scriptures!!

From the little study of history that I have done during my life I have learned that the history is invariably written, or dictated, by the forces that are in power.
