Chinese - Cantonese Translator/Cantonese Interpreter
Whatever the nature of your Chinese language needs, Express Language Solutions has a specialist Chinese translator or interpreter for you. We work with a network of 3500+ accredited linguists who cater for over 120 languages.
However, it's important to know which main dialect of Chinese your client speaks. Chinese is best used as an adjective to describe someone from China, not the language: Mandarin or Cantonese are the main language dialects.
Standard Mandarin Chinese, or Putonghua, is the national standard spoken throughout all of China. It is most similar to the Beijing dialect. However, because the difference in dialects is based on the inflection and intonation which is so characteristic of the Chinese language, there are still some intelligibility issues that only a trained Mandarin translator or interpreter can work through. Mandarin is spoken throughout the North and Southwest of China.
Cantonese is spoken in the southeast of China (the Guanxi and Guangdong regions, specifically), as well as the SARs Hong Kong and Macau. Although both dialects are of the same language, a Mandarin and Cantonese speaker would not be able to understand each other, such is the difference!
When booking a Chinese translator or interpreter, it's important to keep in mind these two variants. Our Chinese interpreters have vast experience working with both the private, public and voluntary sector. Our projects include fact-finding missions in Singapore, as well as the translation of contracts and annual reports and other document translations. In the public sector, we have a long history of providing interpreters for court hearings, housing license agreements, family meetings with schools and GP appointments, etc.
So if you need a Cantonese translator or interpreter, we would be delighted to take your call 24/7 on +44 (0) 161 737 2970. You can also get in touch via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
