Like many things, this is not so simple in practice. The meaning of 245$b depends on the preceding subfield (often, but not always $a). Preceded by : it's a subtitle. Preceded by = it's a parallel title. Preceded by ; it's a second title (another work) by the same person or people as the title in $a. In addition, you can have ISBD punctuation within the subfield for parallel titles or more titles by the same person/people.

If it's in a MARC record, there's no need to guess, because the subfields are already parsed parts. Title proper is 245$a, subtitle is 245$b, etc.

If it is in Chinese characters, I don't know where the place ends and the publisher begins, nor where the title proper ends and subtitle begins. I only got up the 300 characters and gave up.
