Is Mandarin Simplified or Traditional?
Is Mandarin simplified or traditional? Why do we ask these questions?
Chinese is spoken differently in different countries.
If you need a Chinese translation, we need to know which specific dialect you need the documents in.
The Chinese language has five main dialectical groups: Mandarin, Yue, Min, Wu and Hakka.
As it is an ancient language, Chinese (Mandarin) is one of the most difficult languages to translate.
An important factor to consider while looking for an English to Chinese or Chinese to English translator is the Chinese writing systems: Is Mandarin simplified or traditional?
What is spoken and written are not the same – it depends on the area.
In Mainland China and Singapore, Mandarin is the spoken language and people use Simplified Chinese when they write.
In Hong Kong, Cantonese is the predominant dialect while people write in Traditional Chinese.
The exception is Taiwan, where people speak Mandarin and write in Traditional Chinese.
