Chinese translation (usually from English to Chinese or Chinese to English) is one of the top three most common requests we see at Oregon Translation.
We provide Traditional and Simplified Chinese translation of all types of documents, including marketing, technical, legal, employee handbooks, insurance, financial and personal documents and vital records for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and more. All of our Chinese translators are professionally qualified, native speakers.
There are two main “flavors” of written Chinese: Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese. Traditional Chinese characters are currently used in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau and in Guangzhou (also known as Canton, the capital and largest city of the Guangdong province in mainland China). Traditional Chinese is also used in Overseas Chinese communities outside of Southeast Asia. In contrast, simplified Chinese characters are used in mainland China, Singapore and Malaysia.
When translating text from English to Traditional or Simplified Chinese, the amount of Chinese text may be less than that of the original English. Although this change typically results in less text, it can vary based on subject and is less predictable than some western languages. Similarly, when a translator translates text from Traditional or Simplified Chinese into English, there is typically more English text than the original source text, although for people translating more advanced texts such as technical documents, the use of technical translation services is a better option for this, since they have the experience to work with these kind of tasks.
