CTS is an acronym for Chinese translation services. We started as specialists in Chinese translations but after receiving requests from clients for additional languages, we now provide translations for all the major languages.
Yes! Other than Chinese, we also offer translations for French, Spanish, Italian, German, Russian, Japanese, and Korean.
We charge on a per-word or per-page basis because it is the fairest and most accurate way to calculate fees. After receiving and checking your documents, our team will send you an exact quote and delivery date. We’re fully transparent in our pricing, there are no surprises, and all costs are included and upfront.
The answer depends on which market the translations will be used in. If your audience is in Mainland China, Malaysia or Singapore, your documents will need to be translated into Mandarin (Simplified Chinese). On the other hand, if your audience is in Hong Kong or Macau, your documents should be translated into Cantonese (Traditional Chinese).
When it comes to doing business in China, building good relationships or “guanxi” is key. Furthermore, China’s “face” culture is incredibly unique, understanding what it is and how to deal with it will greatly improve your chances of success. Additionally, the Chinese people are huge believers in creating win-win situations, so an agreement which can give both sides a win, would be extremely favourable.
Translation is the process of accurately converting written text from one language into another. Localisation, on the other hand, is the process of adapting a translation to a target market so that it is linguistically and culturally appropriate. Contrastingly, interpretation is the process of translating spoken words.
Certified translations, or ‘official’ translations are documents that have been signed, stamped, and dated by a translator to state that it is a true representation of the original text. Generally speaking, any document that is used for official purposes that is not in the language of the intended country will require a certified translation.
There have been many occasions where a client needed to revise the original document during the translation process, which caused delays to the project and increased costs. Before you send a document for translation, make sure that it is the final version. Furthermore, if you have preferred terminology or would like us to follow a glossary and style guide, please send it to us before the project begins.
