Communicate through experts in specific industries

Call on the subject matter as well as linguistic expertise of Cantonese translators who have specialisms in individual industries ranging from automotive engineering to zoology.

This is especially important for Cantonese. Because in some industries and regions, it might be common to use English loanwords for certain technologies. In others, there may be a specific translation. In some, your linguist may be defining what the accepted translation will be in future.

Use Cantonese translation services that rely on linguists with extensive experience and/or qualifications in your field or industry and communicate with confidence, no matter what sector you’re in. We cover almost every industry imaginable, including:

Target the right regions with your Cantonese translation

Make sure that you are using the right Chinese dialect for the region you are targeting. Cantonese is used in:

  • China, where it is spoken by around 63 million people in Guangdong and Guangxi Provinces
  • Hong Kong
  • Macau
  • Many overseas Chinese communities

But that doesn’t automatically make it the only choice if you are trying to reach all of mainland China, much less Greater China. Displaying true commitment to the region usually involves different translations for Hong Kong as well as China and Taiwan (the latter two usually Mandarin translations).

Get expert advice and recommendations relating to this when you discuss the Cantonese translation services you need in London, the UK or anywhere in the world with your personal account manager.

Focus on the right Chinese script

Getting the best from your project means understanding that Chinese can be written in two different ways:

  • Traditional Chinese characters – are the way Chinese has been written for thousands of years. When it comes to many Cantonese-speaking regions, they are likely the right choice for your project.
  • Simplified Chinese characters – have been created in an ongoing process of streamlining the Chinese language since the 1950s. They are, as you might expect, simpler to write as well as having fewer options for the same concept. But not all parts of the Chinese-speaking world use them.

Discover which will be the ideal script for your project – if you don’t have local expertise on-hand already – when you discuss your project with us. We always pick the just the right linguists for your project from our global talent pool.
