Cantonese Translation Services

Cantonese to English

Cantonese is the predominant dialect of Chinese spoken in Hong Kong and Macau. Cantonese is also the only variety of Chinese other than Standard Mandarin to be used in official contexts. Because of their use by non-Mandarin-speaking Yue speakers overseas, the Cantonese and Taishanese dialects are some of the primary forms of Chinese that Westerners come into contact with.

Cantonese is a variety of the Chinese language spoken in and around the city of Guangzhou (formerly known as Canton) in Southern China, by the majority population of Hong Kong and Macau, and as a lingua franca of Guangdong province, eastern Guangxi province, and some neighbouring areas. It is spoken by overseas Chinese communities in Canada, the United States and Australia, as well as throughout Europe and Southeast Asia, being the most widely spoken dialect and a lingua franca in many of these communities.

Interesting Fact

Cantonese is spoken by approximately 65 million people in southern China provinces, Hong Kong and Macau, as well as other southeast Asian countries like Singapore. It is also one of five major languages in China.

Things to Consider

Cantonese Transcreation

There are a wide range cultural aspects in the Cantonese speaking world that can vary quite significantly depending on the region. For example, many colors, symbols, and region-specific slang can have unintended implications. It is vital that text be adapted accordingly.

In the translation industry we use the term ‘Transcreation’ to refer to this adaptation of a text to suit the cultural understanding of a specific target audience.

It can be a challenging task for a business to expand into the Cantonese market. It’s vitally important that marketing and advertising messages are correctly adapted to this audience, while not compromising the original purpose, style, tone, and context of the message. An awareness of local cultural nuances and adapting your text accordingly is why our Cantonese translators only translate into their native tongue.

Cantonese Website Localization

In the age of globalization, localizing your website is a highly cost-effective investment and an easy way to expand your business presence in that target market. We can professionally translate your website into Cantonese to retain its meaning and flavor as per your original content. Don’t insult your prospective customers by using a “free website translation tool” that risks showing disrespect before even building a client relationship. We can work in HTML, XML, ASP, PHP, GIF, JPEG, Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, PNG, and other Content Management Systems.
