China is big—very big. In fact, it’s the most populous nation on Earth.

So it’s no surprise that Chinese translation is in high demand.

Chinese Translation Services by RedLine

China has been a target market for global firms for the past few decades. While some U.S. firms see the Chinese as competitors, others view them as partners and customers.

Companies need Chinese translation services so that they can meet this new demand. They have to understand and be able to produce a wide range of text types, such as web copy, reports, and RFPs.

While English may still be the major language of business, global firms are adding Chinese to their suite of languages.

We translate from English to Chinese as well as from Chinese to English. Most of our projects involve Simplified Chinese, but we offer Traditional Chinese for markets in Taiwan or Hong Kong.

At RedLine, a second translator proofs every project. This ensures accuracy for materials that will be made public, such as web copy and user interfaces.

We offer document translation as well as audio translation. (For example, we produced the English text for this beautifully shot Chinese documentary. You can also see our page on translating Chinese legal texts.)

In addition, we offer design services in a wide range of file formats. Clients outsource their translation and layout work to RedLine because they like the “one-stop shopping” that we offer. (Learn more about text contraction.)
