When people talk about Chinese, they are often talking about Standard Mandarin, the official language of the People’s Republic of China and Taiwan, and one of the official languages of Singapore. It is a so-called a macrolanguage, a language that includes many varieties and dialects. But this macrolanguage is spoken and understood by an enormous amount of people: approximately 1.2 billion worldwide. The complexity of the Chinese script, however, makes it near-impossible for many inhabitants of Chinese-speaking areas to read or write. About 14% are illiterate.
Standard Mandarin has approximately 12,000 Hanzi (characters). The average Chinese person uses about 4,000, highly educated people use roughly 10,000. Those who truly want to delve into everything Chinese has to offer can turn to the comprehensive Chinese dictionary, the Xiandai Hanyu Cidian. It contains 70,000 characters, words, expressions, and idioms.
In order to select the right Chinese translator for you, we need to work with a large number of Chinese translators who live in China, so-called in-country translators. Translators who are close to their own language and culture and are familiar with the topic of the texts to be translated. Only then can we achieve an optimal final product.
We only select qualified translators for this kind of work. We are an ISO 9001 and ISO 17100 certified translation agency. These are the highest achievable European quality standards for translation agencies. This means both we, and the translators we work with need to meet strict competence requirements. We want to do even more, however. We always offer you a 100% satisfaction guarantee and a lowest price guarantee. You can find out what our clients think of us on this independent website. It goes without saying that we carefully select our translators and only start working with them after they sign a confidentiality agreement. This means your texts are always handled very discreetly.
