Chinese Translators | Simplified and Traditional

Professional Chinese Translation Services Worldwide

English to Chinese (Simplified/Traditional), Chinese to English and other Multiple Languages

 

Two forms of written Chinese are widely used. One is known as 'simplified’ and the other as 'traditional'. Simplified Chinese was introduced in mainland China by the Chinese government in 1949 for the purpose of improving the literacy rate of the population  and to make complicated characters faster to write (some of which originally included a few dozen strokes). Chinese people on the mainland started using the modern version of characters, while those outside mainland China continued to use the original traditional script.

The major difference between the traditional and the simplified version of Chinese is that the traditional form included more complicated characters, whereas the modern simplified characters are regarded as being easier to use.

We offer Chinese translation services, in both simplified and traditional Chinese, in locations across the globe.

About: Chinese
 
Rather than being one self-contained language, Chinese rather refers to a group of languages offically in use in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau, Singapore and the Wa State, Burma as well as being recognised as a minority language in the USA, Canada and Malaysia. It is named as one of the six offical languages of the United Nations: the variant used in this context being "Standard Chinese", a standardised version based on the Mandarin spoken in Beijing. The main branches of Chinese are Mandarin, Wu, Yue, of which the main language is Cantonese, and Min. The variations of Chinese are not always mutually intelligible but of the estimated 1.2 billion speakers of some variety of Chinese, around 960 million are thought to speak Mandarin as their native tongue - making it the lingua franca of the Chinese world. 
 

 

 Spoken Chinese (for Interpreting):
 
The two official versions of the Chinese language are Mandarin and Cantonese. The People's Republic of China (mainland China) has Mandarin as its official spoken language. Although Mandarin itself is often used merely as a name for another sub-group of variants, it is the most commonly used version of the Chinese language both in the PRC, Republic of China (Taiwan) and the Republic of Singapore. Cantonese, on the other hand, is widely spoken in the Special Administrative Regions (SAR) of Hong Kong and Macao as well as the Canton (or Guangdong) province of the PRC. 
 
For interpreting assistance regarding any other Chinese dialects, such as Chinese Hainese, Haka, Hmong, Hokkian or Khek, please do not hesitate to contact us directly.

Just like any other nation, China has its own business etiquette. See our Doing Business in China Page to find out more.
