about us

 

As professional Chinese translators, we FOCUS on localizing various foreign languages into our mother tongue - CHINESE (ZHCN, ZHSI, ZHHK, ZHTW, ZHSG, etc.)! Optimal output quality is ensured as we deliberately choose NOT to diversify, and we have 100% strong control over each piece of translation & localization works we deliver!

 

 

We are a well organized team of professional and experienced NATIVE CHINESE TRANSLATORS / LOCALIZATORS / COPYWRITERS, specialized in translating / localizing / globalizing to (and from) our mother tongue - Chinese

(Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Mandarin, Cantonese, Shanghainess, Sichuanese, etc.).  

 

We handle these foreign languages (preferred as source):
English, Russian, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Danish, Korean and Japanese.

 

A good translator is someone who has a comprehensive knowledge of both source and target languages. Students should read different genres in both source and target languages including modern literature, contemporary prose, newspapers, magazines, advertisements, announcements, instructions, etc. Being familiar with all these genres is important, since they implicitly transfer culture-specific aspects of a language. Specialized readings are also suggested: reading recently published articles and journals on theoretical and practical aspects of translation. The articles will not only improve the students' reading skill in general, but also give them insights which will subconsciously be applied when actually translating. A good translator should be familiar with the culture, customs, and social settings of the source and target language speakers. She should also be familiar with different registers, styles of speaking, and social stratification of both languages. This socio-cultural awareness, can improve the quality of the students' translations to a great extent. According to Hatim and Mason (1990), the social context in translating a text is probably a more important variable than its genre. The act of translating takes place in the socio-cultural context. Consequently, it is important to judge translating activity only within a social context.

According to Hatim and Mason (1990), the social context in translating a text is probably a more important variable than its genre. The act of translating takes place in the socio-cultural context. Consequently, it is important to judge translating activity only within a social context. It’s often assumed that pretty much anyone who is well educated and speaks two languages will have the translation skills necessary to translate to a high standard. Nothing could be further from the truth! In fact, very few people have the combination of basic skills needed to be a professional translator. That is, the knowledge, attributes and abilities to consistently produce translations that are both accurate and read naturally and elegantly in the target language. Even bilingual individuals can rarely express themselves in a given subject equally well in both languages, and many excellent translators are not fully bilingual to begin with. Knowing this limitation, a good translator will only translate documents into his or her native language. This is why we at Language Scientific absolutely require our technical translators only translate into their native language, in addition to their subject matter expertise.

 

The Team

As a China-based translation/localization team with a 21st century global vision, A.C.Translation is built up by a group of highly skilled and dedicated professional Chinese linguists devoting ourselves to the efficient cultural and business communications between the east and the west.

Committed to always delivering outstanding output for each and all assignments, big or small, we combine various expertise and knowledge of professionals in our team to meet any particular requirements of our clients'. Core members of our professional team are from both linguistic and technical backgrounds with credentials and degrees from recognized universities or other industrial institutions. Surviving on quality and diligent in client service, we are proud of being a truly specialized regional language vendor focusing on a limited number of language pairs. The source language we handle include two Eastern Asian languages (Japanese & Korean) and several major European languages (English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Danish), and we focus only one target language – Chinese, with all of its variations: Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Mandarin, Cantonese, Shanghainess, Sichuanese, etc. (The latter three variations are actually just some local dialects, and their writing forms are all the same as the Mandarin).
We are based in several local cities of China, and we speak, read, write and listen in Chinese everyday - we are part of this language and this culture. If you require us to translate from Chinese into your language (for example: translate Chinese into English), we can still handle and the output will be good enough for information or general reading purpose, but please don't expect for perfect native-feel yet. Recently we've been hiring native foreign language translators to improve on this aspect.  We understand our strengths clearly - and we will not compromise. With our clients' long-term success in mind, we know that our uncompromising approach to excellence makes sense. The results, speak for themselves.
