Mandarin translation and interpreter FAQs

Cantonese the second most widely spoken dialect in China. There are over 73.4 million native speakers of Cantonese around the world, including in Hong Kong, Macau, Vietnam, Malaysia and a lot more. In fact, Cantonese is more widely spoken than Mandarin outside of Mainland China.

After English, Cantonese is the third most widely spoken language in Australia, with 280,943 speakers according to the 2016 Census. This number grew by 17,405 people in the 5 years leading up to 2016, and is expected to have grown even more since.

No, in fact, Cantonese and Mandarin are different dialects of Chinese languages and are spoken, not written languages. Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese are the two written variants of Chinese, and our translators work in both of these languages. Talk to our Translation Strategy team to discuss what languages you need to include in your project to reach your target market.

You can send us your documents in whatever format you have - a PDF, Word file, scan, or a photo. As long as the text is readable and clear, our professional translators can translate it for you. But before that happens, our Translation Strategists will analyse them and provide you with a personalised quote.

If you have any specific requirements, let us know and we will do our absolute best to accommodate.

Yes, they are. We only work with native Cantonese-speaking translators, who are highly experienced and NAATI certified.

Probably not. As Cantonese is written using a different script to English, the length of a translation will likely vary from the length of the source text. Our translation specialists will be able to advise and guide you on this, so that the end product still matches your expectations.

Contact our Interpreting Strategy team via our Book an Interpreter page, and they'll be in touch to coordinate an interpeter to meet your needs.

Yes! We work with interpreters all across the country who can help to facilitate communication wherever you are. If an interpreter is unable to physically attend your meeting or conference, we have a suite of remote options, including video interpreting and telephone interpreting, to help overcome communication barriers.
