English to Mandarin Document Translation

Reasons For Document Translation?

Document translation is required when you plan to expand your business overseas, apply for immigration to another country for work or business purposes or attend to legal matters. Some countries require translation of documents into their official language for better understanding and clarity about its content.

Some situations where you might need documents translated are:

  • When you apply for a work or business visa
  • Your prospective employer requires translated documents
  • While opening a bank account in a foreign country
  • When you need to submit documents for legal matters, related to property or business
  • When you wish to expand your business to another country.

English to Mandarin translation is required if you need to submit documents in countries such as China and Taiwan, where the official language is standard Mandarin. The English to Mandarin translation is best carried out by experienced Mandarin translation agencies, since the process involves having a good knowledge of both English and Mandarin and their differences.

Special care is needed to ensure that the essence and meaning of the original document does not get lost or change in any way during the English to Mandarin translation process. Only qualified and experienced translators with in-depth knowledge of Standard Chinese or Mandarin can ensure that the translations convey the same message as the original English document. This is important because even a small error, whether in language or grammar, can have severe consequences.

Experts at Mandarin translation agencies are well versed in both languages and nuances in their writing styles, which helps them ensure accurate English to Mandarin or Mandarin to English translations. Using the right dialect is very important to avoid any kind of confusion about the content of a document.

Since all translated documents need to be legalised before they are submitted in the country where the official language is Mandarin, choosing an agency that provides certified Mandarin translations, along with legalisation services, can ensure a seamless experience.

The certified Mandarin translators at Legalisations.org.uk are well versed with both English and Mandarin and the differences in their writing styles. They have been providing high quality translation services for several years now and belong to the Institute of Translators and Interpreters as well as the Institute of Linguists. They ensure that language specific grammatical features are kept in mind while carrying out the English to Mandarin translations.

The translated documents also need to be legalised before presentation in a foreign country. The legalisation process involves getting an apostille certificate from the UK FCO, if the documents are to be presented in a country that has signed The Hague Apostille Convention of 1961.

However, if the translated documents are to be presented in a country that is not a signatory to the Hague Apostille Convention, an additional step of consular legalisation is required.
