About Chinese Translation
Chinese is a group of related languages that are part of the Sino-Tibetan language family. There are ten distinct dialect groups within the Chinese language, with each dialect group comprising of several distinct dialects with certain common characteristics.
The most widely spoken of these is the Mandarin dialect group, which includes Standard Chinese, Pekinese, Sichuanese and others. Over 900 million people speak one of the dialects that make up the Mandarin group. The other dialect groups are Wu (which includes Shanghainese, Suzhounese and Wenzhounese), Gan, Xiang, Min (which includes Fuzhounese, Hainanese, Hokkien, Taiwanese and Teochew), Hakka, Yue (which includes Cantonese and Taishanese), Jin, Huizhou and Pinghua.
The official language of China is Standard Chinese. It’s an amalgamation of the Beijing dialect, the vocabulary of the Mandarin dialect group and the written form of Chinese known as Baihua. Standard Chinese is also the official language of Taiwan and one of the four official languages of Singapore.
When it comes to writing however there is traditional Chinese and Traditional Chinese. In China and Singapore it’s common place to use Simplified Chinese, whereas in Hong Kong and Taiwan Traditional Chinese is used more.
Most people in mainland China and Taiwan speak two different dialects of Chinese — Standard Chinese and another that they grew up speaking. Due to this mixture of dialects, unique words, pronunciations and phrases have cropped up that a translator must be aware of in order to ensure proper localization of translated content.
In Hong Kong, most natives speak Cantonese or one of the other dialects under the Yue group. Hong Kong Cantonese has its own set of idiosyncrasies.
