English to Chinese Translation

English and Chinese are the two most widely spoken languages in the world. Yet despite this fact, both languages are entirely different. Firstly, English uses the Latin alphabet to form words and phrases. In comparison, Chinese uses over 50,000 unique characters! Even well-educated native speakers only know around 8,000. These differences pose clear difficulties for Chinese 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 for English to Chinese translation of video content or audio. Not only must English to Chinese translators understand the sound of the word, but also the tone it needs to be said in to convey the correct meaning. The same thing, however, can happen with Chinese to English translators.
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. For this reason, trusting a professional translation agency such as Renaissance Translations is a must for all your Chinese translation services needs.

Chinese Translation Tips & Insights

Chinese translation services are what we do best! Therefore, we want to share some insights from our Chinese translators. Use these two tips with your Chinese to English translators to help guarantee a high-quality translation every time so you can connect with and grow your audience.

Know Your Audience

There are multiple different forms of the Chinese language, and the one you need depends on which geographical location you’re targeting. Therefore, you need to know who your audience is before starting any English to Chinese translation project.
If communicating with mainland China or Singapore, Simplified Chinese is used for most text. 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 their written Chinese translations, yet Cantonese for all spoken words.

Consider Character Spacing

Have you ever noticed how Chinese text takes up less space than the English equivalent? The characters used in Chinese writing represent entire symbols or words, rather than singular letters in an alphabet. Therefore, the written text takes up around 30% less space than languages using the Latin alphabet.
This might not seem like an important consideration when you translate to Chinese. However, in the world of advertising and marketing, it can make the content look strange and unprofessional. Therefore, we offer full localisation services to account for these changes. This ensures the content is properly catered to your audience.
