Simplified Chinese or Traditional Chinese?

One of the most important things we need to know to accurately translate your document is whether or not you need "Simplified Chinese" or "Traditional Chinese". This only applies to written Chinese and is different not only in the style of characters but also in the selection of words chosen.  It all depends on where your translation will be used.
  • Simplified Chinese — Used in Mainland China and Singapore
     
  • Traditional Chinese — Used in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia (Chinese Population), and the United States

Other Questions We Ask...

When someone requests a quote to translate their documents into Chinese, we ask a few questions such as the following:

  • Do You Need The Chinese Typeset?  If you are using the Chinese in another program besides Microsoft Word, do you want us to typeset and finalize the files for the printer or website? Chinese fonts can cause problems on regular computers. We offer DTP and website design to finalize your Chinese documents.
     
  • Metric Conversion.  If the Chinese translation is going to be used in Asian countries, most likely any measurements should be converted to the metric system.  In fact, the United States is one of only a few countries in the world who do not use metrics.
     
  • Is the Original File in Microsoft Word?  Translating in Microsoft Word is the easiest and most cost-effective. We also work with many different file formats — PDF, PowerPoint, Quark, InDesign — on both the PC and Mac.

Chinese to English Translation

You may have a Chinese document that needs translated into English. We offer Chinese to English translation as well. You might be looking at all of the Chinese characters and wondering how many English words it will create.  As a general rule, two Chinese characters equals one English word.  So, if you have 1,000 Chinese characters in a document, it will be approximately 500 English words.  We charge "per character" when we are translating from Chinese into English.
