Chinese translation

Chinese Translation

Chinese translation (usually from English to Chinese or Chinese to English) is one of the top three most common requests we see at Verbio.

We provide Traditional and Simplified Chinese translation of all types of documents, including marketing, technical, legal, employee handbooks, insurance, financial and personal documents and vital records for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and more. All of our Chinese translators are professionally qualified, native speakers.

There are two main “flavors” of written Chinese: Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese. Traditional Chinese characters are currently used in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau and in Guangzhou (also known as Canton, the capital and largest city of the Guangdong province in mainland China). Traditional Chinese is also used in Overseas Chinese communities outside of Southeast Asia. In contrast, simplified Chinese characters are used in mainland China, Singapore and Malaysia.

When translating text from English to Traditional or Simplified Chinese, the amount of Chinese text may be less than that of the original English. Although this change typically results in less text, it can vary based on subject and is less predictable than some western languages. Similarly, when a translator translates text from Traditional or Simplified Chinese into English, there is typically more English text than the original source text.

Mandarin and Cantonese are common spoken dialects of Chinese. Mandarin is spoken across mainland China and in Taiwan. Cantonese is centered around Hong Kong and the southeastern Chinese province of Guangdong (formerly spelled “Canton”). Many established Chinatown communities in North American and Europe speak Cantonese.
