Chinese Translation Services Q&A

What is the difference between Simplified and Traditional Chinese?

Simplified Chinese is the language spoken in Mainland China while Traditional Chinese is used in Taiwan. As the names imply, Simplified Chinese is written with characters having fewer strokes, making them easier to write by hand compared to Traditional Chinese. However, modern writing are most done on the computer so character strokes no longer mean anything for writing speeds. If you your target audience is within the Chinese Mainland, you should chose Simplified Chinese to translate. If your customers reside in Taiwan, you should translate to Traditional Chinese.

Both Simplified and Translation Chinese can be understood interchangeably by people from Mainland China and Taiwan. However, each has developed its own expressions and dialects so professionally speaking you should always translate your documents separately for distributions in Mainland China or Taiwan. Additionally, Simplified and Traditional Chinese use different encoding standards to represent characters on the computer, with GB for Simplified and Big5 for Traditional. However, the modern Unicode can support both now.

Can I translate into one version of Chinese and then convert it to the other?

The answer is no if you want to professionally translate your contents for the best linguistic quality and technical accuracy. Even though both Simplified and Traditional Chinese can be understood interchangeably between Mainland China and Taiwan, there are many expressions and terminologies that are distinctly different between the two. Secondly, the two versions of Chinese are written differently and you’ll need to spend time to convert from one to the other. After conversion, you’ll need to review and adopt the different expressions as don’t make sense to the target audience once converted.
