The number of native Chinese speakers is estimated at 1.2 billion. The Chinese language includes many language varieties or dialects, some of which are not mutually intelligible. It is an official language of China, Taiwan, the unrecognised Wa State of Burma and Singapore. Chinese is also one of the six languages of the United Nations. Standard Chinese, also known as Mandarin, is the most commonly spoken language in China. Cantonese is another influential dialect used in specific regions such as Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau. Some other widespread primary Chinese dialects include Wu, Yue and Min.
English to Chinese is one of the most common language combinations for which our team is required to deliver translations. Below is a list of specialities that TranslateMedia covers for English to Chinese translations.
English to Chinese Legal Translation
The People’s Republic of China is currently undergoing gradual reform, as many factors domestically and internationally emphasise the need to strengthen the rule of law in China, and trade with a wider selection of countries and globalization spur transformations in various areas of Chinese domestic law which has traditionally been a socialist state. Our English to Chinese legal documents translation is designed to take into account the different ways the two countries’ legal systems work. As they involve legally binding contracts and valuable pieces of information, it is important that those carrying out legal document translations on your behalf know exactly what is required of them.
This is the reason we only employ experienced and talented English to Chinese translators with the skills that mean they can provide a valuable service. Of course, each law firm has its own areas of practice that it specialises in and we understand your English to Chinese legal document translation needs will vary.
English to Chinese eCommerce Website Translation
The growth of e-commerce in China has been faster than that of western countries during the past five years. This is due to the growth of Internet users, improved online payments, much more widespread coverage and services improving. Such trends will continue as long as companies are still looking to move into this territory.
If you are considering taking your business international, you should contemplate converting all of your marketing materials including your English website, your social network offering and all English marketing brochures into Chinese. Our team of translators will also take into consideration the local Chinese customs, cultural conditions such as the use of colour, website layout and your legal terms and conditions.
