English to Chinese translations


The fact that China dominates the global economy and generated an astounding nearly 30% of global industrial production in 2019 is old news for you. Our clients work hard to get a foothold in China. And EPIC Translations works hard to make sure your English to Chinese translations are accurate and production ready. We bring to the table 2,500 vetted and experienced Chinese translators who specialize in different segments of the economy.

Chinese characters can be written in two different ways: traditional and simplified.

Traditional Chinese

The earlier style of the writing, known as Traditional Chinese, is still in use in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and other foreign countries as well as in a number of “Chinatowns” in the west. Compared to their simplified cousins, traditional Chinese characters are both more complicated and more plentiful.

Simplified Chinese

In order to make traditional characters simpler to recall and write, simplified Chinese was created by lowering the number of strokes in each character. To promote literacy, Simplified Chinese was created in Mainland China. Many traditional characters were condensed into a single cohesive character as part of the simplification process in the simplified version.

Which Variant Should You Choose?

The variant of Chinese you choose will depend on where your target audience resides at. We’ve mentioned the locations below and what variant is spoken there. This should help in deciding what variant you should choose:

  1. Mainland China – Simplified Chinese
  2. Taiwan – Traditional Chinese
  3. Hong Kong – Traditional Chinese
  4. Singapore – Simplified Chinese


While you focus on expanding your Chinese market share, we’ve got your English to Chinese translation needs covered.

Quality, timely, and production-ready translations are the life blood of our work at EPIC Translations.

We use a translation-edit-proofread (TEP) workflow: Each translation goes through three complete rounds of editing, review, and proofreading after being initially translated by a vetted, competent translator. This ensures the greatest quality possible. Translation quality standards adopted by EPIC Translations are based on ISO 17100:2015.
