Professional Chinese Translation Services

Translation into Chinese

BeTranslated provides translation in a range of Asian languages. Our team of qualified translators provide 24/7 service to corporate clients and individuals.

We take great care in choosing the right Chinese translator for each client and assigning supporting translators as needed, to ensure continuity throughout every translation project.

Each time you submit a document for translation, you can select the service appropriate for your level of urgency.

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:
Mandarin with short-form (simplified) characters
in Mainland China and Singapore
Mandarin with long-form (traditional) characters

in Taiwan

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.

Translation rates for Chinese translations

Our rates range vary according to the following factors:
I
Specificity of the text

If a translator has to perform a lot of research, the translation logically takes more time.

I
Total word count

Our rates vary based on the number of words to be translated.

I
Requested deadline
If we have to work overnight or during weekends, there is a 50% increase over the basic rate.
I
Format of the document
The best-fit format for translation purposes is a word processing format (for instance, MS Word-compliant) or html.
As is evident, a number of factors influence the price of a translation. This is the reason we ask you to send us all files that require translation as soon as possible, so that we can provide you with an exact quote, based on all the factors mentioned above.
