The Chinese Language

Language Overview: Chinese or the Sinitic language (simplified Chinese; traditional Chinese), is a language family consisting of languages mutually intelligible to varying degrees. Originally the indigenous languages spoken by the Han Chinese in China, it forms one of the two branches of Sino-Tibetan family of languages.

Regions Spoken: People's Republic of China (Mainland China), Republic of China (Taiwan), Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Macau, the Philippines, the United States of America, Australia, Indonesia, Mauritius, Peru, Canada, and other regions with Chinese communities

Population: About one-fifth of the world's population, or over one billion people, speak some form of Chinese as their native language. The identification of the varieties of Chinese as "dialects" instead of "languages" is considered inappropriate by some linguists.

Dialects: The standardized form of spoken Chinese is Standard Mandarin, based on the Beijing dialect, which is part of a larger group of North-Eastern and South-Western dialects.

Chinese Transcreation

There are a wide range cultural aspects in the Chinese speaking world that can vary quite significantly depending on the region. For example, many colors, symbols and region specific slang can have implications that can be quite different to those intended. It is vital that text be adapted accordingly.

In the translation industry we use the term ‘Transcreation’ to refer to this adaptation of a text to suit the cultural understanding of a specific target audience.

It can be a challenging task for a business to expand into the Chinese market. It’s vitally important that marketing and advertising messages are correctly adapted to this audience, while not compromising the original purpose, style, tone and context of the message. An awareness of local cultural nuances and adapting your text accordingly is why our Chinese translators only translate into there native tongue.
