1.25 billion people speak Chinese. It’s the most spoken language in the world and the official language in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau and Singapore. Mandarin Chinese is the official and most commonly spoken Chinese language. Cantonese is the second most common language, especially in southern China.

Chinese has two types of script. There’s Traditional Chinese, which has remained virtually unchanged for thousands of years. Then there’s Simplified Chinese, which was created in Communist China in 1949. It was part of Mao Tse-Tung’s program to teach the masses to read and write. Therefore, when translating a text into Chinese, it’s important to know who the target audience is.

Benefit in Israel from Lichi’s strong knowledge of Chinese translation and cuture. Whatever your goal in Chinese, we have unmatched skill and expertise in a wide range of communications projects.
