We provide high-quality and affordable translation and localization services between English and Traditional Chinese. We are well known in our industry for our strength and competitiveness in Traditional Chinese and other Asian languages.

Our Strength and Competitiveness

  • With a branch office and a team in Taipei, we are able to recruit native in-house Traditional Chinese translators and we have a very large pool of local part-timers in different regions who understand the culture and clearly know the expressions and wording of Traditional Chinese. The linguists are highly specialized in different verticals.
  • Before we proceed with our standard project management process, we always check with the client the target market of the Traditional Chinese translation so as to ensure the right resources are located. We offer English to Traditional Chinese translation for Taiwan, Hong Kong, USA Chinese communities, Chinese communities in European countries, etc. We also provide the service to adapt the translation from Simplified Chinese to Traditional Chinese and transcreation.
  • As an ISO9001: 2008 certified translation provider, we can always assure high translation quality. We have earned trust and respect from clients due to our consistently high-quality translation and localization service.

Facts about Traditional Chinese

  • Commonly used in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, as well as some areas in Guangdong Province (mainland China) and some overseas Chinese communities, Traditional Chinese has been the official written form in Hong Kong and Macau since colonial times.
  • Chinese is not an alphabetic language. Traditional Chinese, by its name, is a traditional version that had been written by Chinese people for thousands of years. The modern shapes of traditional Chinese characters first appeared with the emergence of the clerical script during the Han Dynasty. Traditional Chinese characters and Simplified Chinese characters are two standard character sets of the contemporary Chinese written language.
  • Traditional Chinese usually has more strokes than Simplified Chinese. Most mainland Chinese people can read Traditional Chinese characters but few can write. On the other hand, not too many of the people who use Traditional Chinese can understand Simplified Chinese. However, Simplified Chinese characters have an increasingly impact on Hong Kong and Macau with the economic development and influx of tourists from Mainland China.

Traditional Chinese Peculiarities

  • While the form of Traditional Chinese can be converted to Simplified Chinese when using MS Office or other online conversion tools, the wording and expressions can’t be converted automatically. A native linguist is needed to manually adapt the machine-converted characters and expressions from Simplified Chines to Traditional Chinese.
  • When we talk about Mandarin, Cantonese or Taiwanese, we take them as spoken languages. Mandarin is the official spoken language for mainland China (People’s Republic of China, PRC) as well as Taiwan (Republic of China, ROC), while Taiwanese or Min Dialect is popular in informal daily communications in Taiwan. Cantonese is a dialect in Canton (or Guangdong) Province in Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macao Special Administrative Regions. It also has a different written form, which is different with both Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese characters. It is, therefore, important to find out the target locale to determine which Chinese writing form to use. Never take for granted that Mandarin is equivalent to Simplified Chinese, or Cantonese/Taiwanese to Traditional Chinese.
