Chinese: The world’s leading language
With over 1.3 billion speakers in the People’s Republic of China alone (accounting for more than one sixth of the world’s population), Chinese has become one of the most crucial languages for international business development. As the world’s second global power, the country is now a strategic gateway region via which to conquer new markets. Why neglect this part of the world that is home to the suppliers of tomorrow?
When it comes to Chinese, a professional translator is absolutely essential. The Chinese alphabet encompasses over 5,000 characters that refer to either a tone or meaning and vary depending on their particular context.
And that’s just the writing: Spoken Chinese is even more complicated! We tend to use the term ‘Chinese’ for what is essentially an entire collection of Chinese languages: there are no fewer than seven different families, Mandarin, Wu, Yue, Gan, Hakka, Min and Xiang. And some linguists take it even further, with another three groups to consider…
Each region has its own variety of Chinese with its own special characteristics, and all of them need to be taken into account when you start expanding into this market!
