When taking on a Chinese translation project, we don’t just look at the language. We are also able to advise on strategy and latest trends, such as a SEO strategy for China. For example, the Chinese consumer is highly receptive to social media influences when making purchasing decisions, but they do not use the same social media channels as other countries. Baidu is the search engine of choice, Weibo for microblogging and WeChat, a WhatsApp style messaging platform with a social aspect. 66% of Chinese consumers have said that they would be happy to recommend a brand that they had a positive experience with via social media, proving that influencer marketing is a widely embraced concept amongst internet users of the Asian giant.
It’s this kind of insight that sets us apart from the competition and makes us the trusted partner to many UK based companies.
About China and the Chinese languages
China is the second largest state in the world by land area and the world’s most populous country with a population of over one billion and almost 300 living languages. The two widely spread Chinese languages are Mandarin and Cantonese. Mandarin Chinese is China’s primary language, spoken by over 70% of the population. Standard Chinese, which is a form of Mandarin, is the official national language and serves as lingua franca. Official language in Hong Kong and Macau is instead Cantonese, which is also spoken by overseas Chinese in Southeast Asia and in the Western World.
The demand for Chinese translations has been rising steadily, as UK and European companies look to capitalise on a growing middle-class in China. The Chinese population has enjoyed record-breaking growth in the last few decades, and the result of that growth is a multi-billion-dollar market that is an attractive trade partner. Online retail in China grew by 26.2% from 2015 to 2016, cementing its place as the top nation for online shopping. China’s retail e-commerce sales share worldwide is set to rise to almost 51% in 2017.
