Chinese translation

Mandarin versus Cantonese

When considering English-to-Chinese translation, the form of Chinese selected hinges on your desired target market. The three most commonly used types are as follows:

  1. Mandarin with short-form (simplified) characters – in Mainland China and Singapore
  2. Mandarin with long-form (traditional) characters – in Taiwan
  3. Cantonese with long-form (traditional) characters – in Hong Kong and for international Chinese

Clients should resist the urge to reduce costs by producing one set of Chinese materials to cover all of Greater China, since there are age-old conflicts among ethnic Chinese groups. Businesses should instead produce separate communications for each of the three major markets in Greater China – Mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

Failing to recognize the cultural distinctions can produce resentment, shows a lack of sensitivity and indicates to natives an insincere commitment to the region. Luckily, there are significant linguistic similarities among the three and BeTranslated can produce targeted communications for each market.
