English to Chinese Translation
English and Chinese are very different languages as both the languages contain their own structure and complexities. The Chinese language is highly contextual and even slight changes in character composition can change the meaning of a phrase completely. This is why it is very important for any professional translator to fully understand the intended purpose of a sentence to avoid misunderstandings.
Chinese has about seven distinct dialects and many more local dialects. A piece of writing that works for a section of population may not work for others. Only translators with firm grasp of regional differences can be trusted to create quality work that produces the intended effect. A Chinese translator must be equally confident in their English language skills to avoid any loss of meaning in their translations.

Chinese translation tips
Traditional vs Simplified Chinese
In the mid-twentieth century, in an effort to improve the literacy rate, China began a process of simplifying written Chinese (Traditional Chinese). As a result, two versions of written Chinese came into existence: Traditional and Simplified. Although this sounds confusing, it is fairly straightforward to decide which form of the language to use based on where your target markets are located. Simplified Chinese is used majorly in Mainland China, Malaysia and Singapore, whereas Traditional Chinese is used in Taiwan and Hong Kong.
Avoid machine translation
English and Chinese are completely different languages as they belong to completely unrelated language groups. Translation from and to Chinese there requires a great deal of creativity and knowledge which is not possible by using machine translation.
