Chinese translation tips
Traditional vs Simplified Chinese
There are two distinct versions of written Chinese. At the end of the nineteenth century, In an effort to increase the literacy rate, the People’s Republic of China simplified the written language. Thus, two versions of written Chinese came into being: Traditional and Simplified. Depending on your target market, it is fairly straightforward to decide which to use based on geographic location. As a general rule, Simplified Chinese is the standard writing form used in Mainland China, Malaysia and Singapore. On the other hand, the Traditional form is primarily used in Taiwan and Hong Kong.
Avoid machine translation
Beware of using machine translation (MT), especially when translating within the English to Chinese and Chinese to English language pairs. English and Chinese come from completely unrelated language groups, making them vastly different from each other not just in terms of linguistics and grammar, but also culturally and socially. Therefore, translation to and from Chinese requires a great deal of creativity and experience, which machine translation inherently lacks.
