Professional Chinese Legal Translation Services
Chinese legal translation for English to Chinese, Chinese to English and multiple other languages
The translation of a legal document can be a precarious matter. Legal terminology is often very specific, and knowledge of the local legal system and cultural differences may be required to reproduce the document precisely and faithfully. Indeed, when it comes to legal matters, clarity is of crucial importance. All parties must fully understand the complex language of legislation and how it might affect the individual.
Luckily, TJC Global’s professional Chinese translators have years of experience and often qualifications in legal matters.
Their specialist knowledge of legal jargon, as well as their familiarity with local legal procedures, means our Chinese language experts can handle the documentation inherent to all types of law, from the property, contract and tort law to equity and trusts, constitutional and family matters to corporate finance.

Rather than being one self-contained language, Chinese instead refers to a group of languages officially in use in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau, Singapore and the Wa State, Burma, and being recognised as a minority language in the USA Canada and Malaysia. It is named one of the six official languages of the United Nations: the variant used in this context is “Standard Chinese”, a standardised version based on the Mandarin spoken in Beijing. The main branches of Chinese are Mandarin, Wu, Yue, of which the primary language is Cantonese, and Min. The Chinese variations are not always mutually intelligible. Still, of the estimated 1.2 billion speakers of some variety of Chinese, around 960 million are thought to speak Mandarin as their native tongue – making it the lingua franca of the Chinese world.
Spoken Chinese (for Interpreting):
The two official versions of the Chinese language are Mandarin and Cantonese. The People’s Republic of China (mainland China) has Mandarin as its official spoken language. Although Mandarin is often used merely as a name for another sub-group of variants, it is the most commonly used version of the Chinese language in the PRC, Republic of China (Taiwan) and the Republic of Singapore. On the other hand, Cantonese is widely spoken in the Special Administrative Regions (SAR) of Hong Kong and Macao and the Canton (or Guangdong) province of the PRC.
Written Chinese (for Translation):
Two forms of written Chinese are widely used. One is known as ‘simplified’ and the other as ‘traditional’. Simplified Chinese was introduced in mainland China by the Chinese government in 1949 to improve the population’s literacy rate and make complicated characters faster to write (some of which initially included a few dozen strokes). Chinese people started using the modern version of characters, while those outside mainland China continued to use the original traditional script.
The significant difference between the traditional and the simplified versions of Chinese is that the traditional form includes more complicated characters. In contrast, the modern simplified characters are regarded as easier to write.
