WHAT KINDS OF CHINESE CAN YOU TRANSLATE?

From Achang to Zhaba, your Absolute translator understands the little differences that make up the world’s biggest linguistic picture. We can help with all your translation project needs, depending on where your audience is located will inform how your Chinese translation will be done.

For instance, Simplified Chinese is most often used in Mainland China, Malaysia, and Singapore. As opposed to Traditional Chinese which is more frequently used in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Macau.

In addition, to this, you can often find Chinese communities outside of China that are gradually moving towards using Simplified characters.

We can provide high-quality Chinese translations encompassing the full range of Chinese dialects such as traditional Chinese, simplified Chinese, Mandarin, and Cantonese.

We have translated vital contracts, business agreements, PR, news, and legal documents into all eight of the official languages used in China, although mostly into Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TRADITIONAL CHINESE AND SIMPLIFIED CHINESE?

Traditional Chinese is a conventional writing system that has been used by the people in China for thousands of years, but it is less likely to be used for formal documents as it does not contain any of the standardised Chinese characters introduced by the government in the ’40s.

Traditional characters are far more complicated with more strokes, whereas Simplified Chinese, with its more modern Chinese characters, as the name suggests, has been simplified to have fewer strokes.

WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT CHINESE WRITING SYSTEMS?

What can make Chinese translations particularly difficult to get right is the unusual way written Chinese has developed, as Chinese writing doesn’t use an alphabet like most other languages and has numerous different writing systems.

In Chinese writing, there are thousands of characters and Chinese translators have to memorize around 4,000 different characters to be able to provide accurate translations.

It takes very skilled translators to accurately translate documents in written Chinese, as well as spoken Chinese, for the most professional Chinese translations we always recommend using professional language services provided by native translators.

If you require Mandarin translations for technical documents, business documents or website translations our team of expert native linguists can provide certified translations of the highest quality for a free quote (based on a per-word price) simply fill in the instant quote form above.

WHY USE PROFESSIONAL CHINESE TRANSLATION SERVICES FOR BUSINESS?

With more than 1.3 billion residents covering 56 ethnic subdivisions, communicating with Chinese businesses is no small feat, you need to have an expert understanding of the culture, in-depth local knowledge, and cultural knowledge that goes beyond just turning one language into another.

Our Chinese business translation services are provided by native speakers, who have undisputed language skills, and are ready to help with all your business-related Chinese translation service needs so you can be sure your message crosses the cultural divide.

HOW IMPORTANT IS CHINA AS A MARKET?

The Chinese market is vitally important for many businesses as the country is arguably the world’s most vital manufacturer and industrial producer. Mainland China also happens to be the world’s largest exporter and the second-largest importer, which means using professional Chinese translation services should be a priority for your business.

If you want to operate in a global economy Mandarin translation services can help you break into one of the fastest-growing consumer markets – China.

HOW CAN BUSINESSES BENEFIT FROM CHINESE TRANSLATION?

When your business deals with different countries, either as suppliers or customers it is vitally important to break down the language barrier as much as possible so that business can flow seamlessly. Your target customer base will feel valued if you accommodate their language needs.

Targeting the Chinese market, one of the fastest-growing economies, with Chinese communications will prove far more successful for your business than using English language documents. Marketing translations such as emails, social media posts, and advertisements are all things that we can help translate into Chinese.

We are an expert linguist service provided by professional speakers experienced in translating many different languages, plus our certified translation services are accepted by UK authorities such as the UK Passport Office and NARIC – the National Agency responsible for providing information, advice, and an expert opinion on qualifications worldwide. For an instant per word, quote fill in the short form above.

WHAT CHINESE WEBSITE TRANSLATION SERVICES DO ABSOLUTE TRANSLATIONS OFFER?

If your business operates in global markets you will know the importance of having your website translated for your target audience. You need to be able to trust that the translation services you choose are able to provide translations that say exactly what you want.

With Chinese being one of the most widely spoken languages globally, it is important you ensure your Chinese documents are translated by a translation service with expert native speakers.

Additionally, mainland China is one of the largest manufacturing hubs in the world with product information often provided in Chinese, but product descriptions and technical information can occasionally be poorly translated by the manufacturer.

If you have an e-commerce site and want customers to get the best experience accurate Mandarin translation is a must. Our Chinese translation service can provide specialist translators that work in your industry, making sure that the correct tone of voice and terminology is used as they translate your words.

When you need a website written in traditional Chinese or simplified Chinese our Mandarin Chinese translation service is just what you need, our team of native speakers is language experts with a minimum of 5 years of experience translating Chinese documents able to translate anything you require.

DO ABSOLUTE TRANSLATIONS OFFER CERTIFIED TRANSLATION FOR THE CHINESE MARKET?

If you need translations that are certified, such as official documents, legal documents, or other professional business documents that need to have high-quality Chinese, our doors are open to all businesses and individuals who are looking for a hassle-free translation service.

Absolute Translations are the first business in the UK to achieve an ISO 17100:2015 certification, making us the preferred translation service for businesses.

Our certified translators are able to provide all certification levels depending on your authority’s specific requirements, including statements of truth, sworn translations, notarizations, and legalisations with an Apostille from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

HOW ARE ABSOLUTE TRANSLATIONS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER PROFESSIONAL CHINESE TRANSLATION SERVICES?

CAN YOU USE GOOGLE TRANSLATE INSTEAD WHEN TRANSLATING TRADITIONAL CHINESE INTO SIMPLIFIED CHINESE?

Admittedly it is possible to use Google to translate a document from Simplified Chinese into Traditional Chinese and vice-versa. However, for the best document translation, you need an expert linguist who has extensive experience in both systems to carefully work through each character to ensure accurate translation.

While it might be tempting to use a machine translator like Google Translate to translate between the two Chinese writing systems we would strongly recommend against doing this because there is no direct one-to-one equivalent of a simplified character to a traditional character. It may only take one Simplified character to convey what is being said in five Traditional characters.

A human being will always be superior to a machine in this regard, and not only that but when working with one of our skilled translators you can be confident that your documents will say exactly what you want them to say. You will also benefit from the peace of mind of having excellent Chinese products with an unbeatably fast turnaround.

WHY USE NATIVE CHINESE SPEAKERS WHEN GETTING TECHNICAL DOCUMENTS TRANSLATED?

The translation process can be difficult as you cannot always take the literal meaning of a word and directly translate that into another language, this is why often using free services, such as Google Translate, in a professional setting can cause issues.

A literal document translation might read as incorrect to a human, while a computer program might see nothing wrong with the translation. A native speaker of the language with experience in multiple other languages is the best way to produce professional documents in other languages.

While other translation services often rely on machine translations, we only work with native professional translators with a minimum of five years of experience in their field. when you combine that with our exhaustive contact list of industry experts your rest easy knowing all of your needs are covered.

WHAT ARE CERTIFIED TRANSLATIONS?

If you need Chinese translation services that offer notarized or certified translations, you’ve come to the right place.

When a translation is referred to as being certified, this means that the translator has given a signed statement stating that the translation is a true representation of the original document. Certified translations are normally needed when you are submitting legal papers, such as marriage certificates, supporting documents for immigration, or business contracts that are not written in the official language of the country where the translated files are being submitted.

It is important to note that there is a between a certified translator and a translation that has been certified, when a professional translator has passed an exam (which exam varies from country to country) it means that they are certified. This does not need to be done by a certified translator. Instead, it is a translation that the translator certifies to be an exact translation of the original or source document.

WHAT ARE NOTARIZED TRANSLATIONS?

A notarized translation means that the translated document fulfills the formal requirements of a certain institution and has been given an official seal of approval. In this case, a professional translator gives the documents to a notary public, who then has the translator swear an oath proving the accuracy of the translation. The translator also has to sign an affidavit that contains all official details like the signature and seal of the notary.
