Chinese Translation Services

English to Chinese translation is our most requested service, it is the first language pair we offered almost ten years ago and millions of words translated later, we still enjoy doing it!

For many businesses around the globe, China is repeatedly named as one of the countries they would most like to expand into and for good reasons too. With over 1.3 billion residents and a country that has enjoyed double digit growth for the last 30 years, breaking into China can be extremely lucrative, but there are cultural and linguistic challenges also.

Which type of written Chinese do you require?

If for example your audience is in mainland China or Singapore, your translations will need to be in Simplified Chinese. However, if your audience is in Hong Kong, Taiwan or Macau, Traditional Chinese should be applied.

The difficulties of Chinese translation

Chinese translation is not easy! There are many differences to English and only a professional translator has the expertise to accurately localise your messages as he/she will have a complete understanding of the culture, translate with the correct syntax and style of your target audience, after all, the country is formed into 56 ethnic groups, more than twice the size of Europe.

Case study

Deep South Development

Client Background

Deep South Studios is a new $63.5 million full-service motion picture, television and digital media production facility. Located in New Orleans, Louisiana. It is the largest design-built independent film and television full-service facility ever constructed in the Southeastern United States.

Translation Performed

When Deep South Studios decided to finance $49.5 million, by soliciting investors through the federal EB-5 program, they approached Waterstone Translations to translate their legal documents into Simplified Chinese. The project was 200,000 words in size, with 80,000 words required in 5 days. A team of handpicked linguists with both legal and technical expertise collaborated to maintain consistency of language and style throughout the project, ensuring that the translations were completed on time and met strict quality standards.
