Chinese translation services

China, by far, has the largest population in the world boasting a whopping 1.4 billion people. It’s a global economic powerhouse that impacts almost every industry sector including retail, technology, engineering and finance.

With a spike in mass migration from the 19th century to the mid 20th century, the Chinese diaspora can be found on almost every continent in the world.

We help global businesses to successfully operate and communicate effectively in the Chinese market. Our pool of native, in-country Mandarin-and Cantonese-speaking linguists are vetted, fully qualified translators with expert industry experience. You’ll also benefit from dedicated account management and production teams to ensure we deliver a professional and accurate Chinese translation service.
