Chinese translation services for London and the UK

Get the precise type of Chinese translation services you need in London, the UK and globally for projects targeting any part of the world where Chinese is spoken.

Because Chinese is a complex language. It is spoken in a huge variety of areas and has a wide range of dialects. Mandarin and Cantonese are the most common. But there is also Wu, Xiang, Gan, Hakka, Min and many others.

Which is best for you? It depends on the part of the world you want to do business with. Is it a specific part of mainland China? Singapore? Taiwan? Hong Kong? Macau?

Wherever your audience happens to be, Asian Absolute ensures you have the native-speaking Chinese to English or English to Chinese translators – who are also subject matter specialists in your particular field or industry – to help you get your message across loud and clear.

Whether it’s your marketing. Your internal communications. Your website, app or online content. Product packaging. E-learning materials. Whatever you need to localise for any Chinese-speaking audience

Target any industry or sector in the world

Count on Chinese to English and English to Chinese translation services delivered by industry specialists. Each of our Chinese translators is an expert in a specific field. They will have matching qualifications and/or years of experience in their industry.

This is vital. Because in many Chinese dialects, the terminology of different industries varies by region. In some cases, it has yet to be defined.

This calls for extensive knowledge of both your industry and the language itself. We regularly provide this expertise in sectors including:



Life Sciences

Banking & Finance

Marketing & PR





Travel & Tourism



Source Chinese translation services for London, the UK and the world

What part of the world are you targeting with your project? The geographic focus of your Chinese translation services determines the best choice of Chinese dialect or dialects.

For example, if you’re targeting the entirety of Greater China, you really need separate versions for Mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Anything less and you risk displaying insufficient commitment to the region.

Get recommendations from us as part of your project. We’ll usually recommend for:

  • Mainland China and some overseas communities – Mandarin (written using Simplified Chinese characters).
  • Singapore – Mandarin (written using Simplified Chinese characters and Singapore-specific vocabulary).
  • Taiwan – Mandarin (written using Traditional Chinese characters).
  • Hong Kong and some overseas communities – Cantonese (written using Traditional Chinese characters).


Asian Absolute helped in the challenging task of building a world-class translation service. They provide top quality, personal service.

Guinness World Records

Translate for different dialects and characters

Take a look at the list of regions above. You’ll see that some regions prefer different dialects of Chinese written using different characters.

Since the 1950s, efforts to simplify Traditional Chinese characters have resulted in Simplified Chinese. In this script, there are fewer lines required to write each character and the overall number of characters has been reduced and the selection process streamlined.

Certain parts of the world – namely Taiwan, Hong Kong and some overseas Chinese communities – haven’t followed this process. Find out more about Chinese language variants here. Or simply discuss it with an expert when you call to plan your project.

Rely on us to provide both English to Chinese and Chinese to English translation services for a huge variety of dialects and variants. More than twenty tears of specialising in the region gives us a huge talent pool of linguists to call on.
