Frequently Asked Questions


What other Chinese language services do you offer?

As a leading translation agency, we offer Chinese translation services as well as a comprehensive range of Chinese language services. This includes the translation of text and written Chinese documents, as well as audio or video translation. We also offer transcript services to help you get a written record of audio or video content, as well as subtitling for video, with the option to have a time-stamped file format, letting you easily put your subtitles onto your video – useful for training videos, informational videos, and entertainment media.

Can you translate both traditional Chinese and simplified Chinese?

We can translate any type of Chinese language or dialect, including both traditional and simplified Chinese. One of our most common Chinese translation languages is Mandarin Chinese for Northern and Southwestern China, but we can help with any Chinese translation you need. We only use skilled translators who are native speakers in the language that they translate into – whether that is translating something into Chinese or translating from Chinese into a different language. This means that we always provide translations that are highly accurate and will have the right flow and nuance for native Mandarin speakers.2

What are specialist translations?

We offer a full range of specialist translations – this means that we can help with translations for complicated fields such as medicine, law, technology, chemistry, and finances. Translations for these fields can be more difficult than standard translations due to the complex terminology and specialist knowledge required to make an accurate translation – this is why we have translators with backgrounds in a wide range of fields, to make sure that we can provide an accurate translation whatever your original document is. We also have experts who can help with the layout of documents such as birth certificates and marriage licenses.

Do you offer certified Chinese translations?

Chinese is one of the six official languages of the United Nations, which means that a lot of legal documents and official documents are in Chinese. We can offer certified translation services to help make sure that you can use documents for official purposes in Chinese or any other language – for example, we have translated documents from Chinese to English for use with the UK authorities or UK courts, as well as completed certified translation services into Chinese.

A certified translation is where the translated document is signed as a sworn accurate translation of the original. We have certified Chinese translators to help with an official translation process for your translation project.

What Chinese languages and dialects can you translate?

We can help with a wide range of Chinese languages and dialects – we know that languages can have many dialects with their own variations, and we know how important it is to get a translation into the right local dialects for your target audience. We can handle all official languages for China, as well as a wide range of Chinese dialects, including the Beijing dialect, dialects from mainland China and southwestern China, and other languages and regional dialects. For translations from English to Chinese, we can help with translations into simplified Chinese, and traditional Chinese, as well as putting translations into Chinese characters or romanised spelling.

How much do Chinese translation services cost?

We can only give a cost for your Chinese translation project once we know what your translation request is. If you want a free quote, get in touch using the form below, or contact us through email or by telephone. One of our dedicated project managers will get back to you within one hour with a quote.

If you have any additional needs such as certification, document formatting, or other languages, let us know and we can give a quote that includes these.

Can I use machine translation for my Chinese translation project?

Machine translation has become more popular over the last few years due to the rise of free online translators. However, we believe that you only get high quality translation when you use professional language services.

Machine or computer translation means that a computer uses machine learning to translate individual words or short phrases. Using translation memory like this can mean that errors can creep in, and it also means that the finished translation can lack the nuance and fluency of a translation completed by a trained professional translator – this is why we suggest that you avoid machine translation and instead use a professional Chinese translation agency.

How long do Mandarin Chinese translation services take?

The time it takes to complete a translation job depends on several factors, such as length, complexity, language pair, and any additional services you require, such as formatting or certification. If you would like to know how quickly we can complete your Chinese translation needs, get in touch for a free quote. We also offer an express translation option for when you need urgent Chinese translation services.
