It is critical that before introducing a product or service to China, marketing content, collateral and audio & video materials to be used should be translated into Mandarin Chinese with proper sensitivities to localization. Poorly translated and culturally inappropriate content is awkward at best or at worst potentially offensive to the target audience and may lead to a delayed or even failed market entry.

There are three mistakes that some companies make when it comes to English Chinese translation and content localization:

i) They think English is good enough. However, most Chinese, including those who speak English well, still prefer to read Chinese.

ii) They think any native speaker of Mandarin Chinese is able to do the translation. Quality translation requires the mastery of both English and Chinese, requires translation techniques that can only be acquired through continuous practice, and requires broad knowledge of the specific subject matter pertaining to the translation.

iii) They use Google translation or other software translation without any human proof-reading and editing. In most cases, the results are not acceptable to native speakers of the target language.
