English to Chinese Translation

English and Chinese are the two most widely spoken languages, yet both are entirely different, which makes Chinese translation difficult. Firstly, English is written in the Latin alphabet, whereas Chinese uses over 50,000 unique characters! Even well-educated native Chinese speakers only know around 8,000. These differences pose evident difficulties for Chinese to English translators.

In addition, Chinese is a tonal language with five tones in total. As such, the meaning of each sound changes depending on the tone you use when speaking. This presents additional challenges when translating Chinese to English video content or audio. Your Chinese translator must understand the sound of the word and the tone it needs to be said in to convey the correct meaning.
On top of all of this comes the multiple Chinese dialects. There are seven primary dialects but many more local forms of the language. Therefore, knowing your audience and accounting for these regional differences is vital when you translate Chinese. For this reason, trusting a professional translation agency such as Renaissance Translations is a must for your Chinese translation.

Chinese Desktop Publishing

Desktop publishing (DTP) is crucial when translating Chinese to English, as both languages have distinct writing systems. Chinese text is typically shorter than English, leading to excess space on the page. Character spacing is also altered, and fonts used for the Latin alphabet are unlikely to support Chinese characters. This can lead to an unprofessional and illegible Chinese translation.

The People’s Republic of China only permits you to print your material in licensed fonts. Using unlicensed typefaces breaks the agreement of the font manufacturer. Choosing between Tradition and Simplified Chinese characters is also crucial whenever you translate Chinese.

Chinese Translation Tips & Insights

Chinese translation services are what Chinese translation services are what we do best! Therefore, we want to share some insights from our Chinese to English translators. Use these tips when translating Chinese to English to help guarantee a high-quality translation every time.

Know Your Audience

There are multiple forms of the Chinese language, and the one you need depends on which geographical location you’re targeting. Therefore, you need to know whom your audience is before starting to translate Chinese.
Simplified Chinese is used for most text when communicating with mainland China or Singapore. However, the translation of spoken material and audio requires the use of Mandarin. On the other hand, companies targeting people in Hong Kong need to use Traditional Chinese for written Chinese translation, yet Cantonese for all spoken words.

Consider Character Spacing

Have you ever noticed text takes up less space when you translate Chinese? The characters used in Chinese writing represent entire symbols or words rather than singular letters in an alphabet. Therefore, written text takes up around 30% less space than languages using the Latin alphabet.
This might not seem like an important consideration for your Chinese translation. However, in the world of advertising and marketing, it can make the content look strange and unprofessional. Therefore, your Chinese translator can offer desktop publishing to account for these changes. This ensures that the content looks professional and is easily read by your new audience.
