Rather than being one self-contained language, Chinese rather refers to a group of languages offically in use in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau, Singapore and the Wa State, Burma as well as being recognised as a minority language in the USA, Canada and Malaysia. It is named as one of the six offical languages of the United Nations: the variant used in this context being “Standard Chinese”, a standardised version based on the Mandarin spoken in Beijing. The main branches of Chinese are Mandarin, Wu, Yue, of which the main language is Cantonese, and Min. The variations of Chinese are not always mutually intelligible but 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 itself is often used merely as a name for another sub-group of variants, it is the most commonly used version of the Chinese language both in the PRC, Republic of China (Taiwan) and the Republic of Singapore. Cantonese, on the other hand, is widely spoken in the Special Administrative Regions (SAR) of Hong Kong and Macao as well as 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 for the purpose of improving the literacy rate of the population, and to make complicated characters faster to write (some of which originally included a few dozen strokes). Chinese people on the mainland started using the modern version of characters, while those outside mainland China continued to use the original traditional script.
The major difference between the traditional and the simplified versions of Chinese is that the traditional form includes more complicated characters, whereas the modern simplified characters are regarded as easier to write.
What forms of conference interpreters worldwide can TJC Global provide for business?
Video/videoconference interpreting: (also Video Remote Interpreting is available) TJC provides language interpreting services to support events such as business discussions, conferences, legal/court/arbitration/litigation, and other online business interactions in the industry during these challenging times.
Participants can communicate via video or voice calls using laptops, smartphones, tablets etc. These can be recorded should you wish to take minutes. O r professionally qualified interpreters can join your online virtual meeting, event, or proceeding, for example, and interpret remotely in the language pairing you require to facilitate smooth communication between all parties.
Telephone/teleconference interpreting is a practical way to bridge any language barriers. T e interpreter is either located remotely (away from either party) or is with one of the parties. In both cases, they deliver interpreting services through telephone conferencing.
Telephone interpretation is helpful for clients who cannot travel to their counterparts’ countries but still wish, for example, to hold business discussions or communicate progress updates. At TJC Global, we are pleased to provide professionally qualified interpreters worldwide in almost any selected language combination.
Simultaneous interpreting (also available with Video Remote Interpretation (VRI))
is used for international conferences, critical business discussions, seminars & symposiums. In this case, two to three interpreters are usually situated in a booth, away from the audience, and take turns to interpret at high speed, changing over every 15-20 minutes to avoid fatigue.
The interpreters use headsets to listen to the speaker’s message and repeat it immediately (practically “simultaneously”) in the target language to benefit relevant audience members.
Consecutive interpreting (also available with Video Remote Interpretation (VRI)) is the most common type. It is used for business discussions, negotiations, contract exchanges, commercial, legal, and technical meetings, medical or court hearings or onsite inspections. T e interpreter listens to the speaker, often making notes, and delivers the meaning in the target language afterwards.
The interpreter may wait until a pause or the end, at which point they deliver a translation relatively quickly. Consecutive interpreting may also be used at conferences for panel discussions, Q&A sessions or private discussions between parties – at a stand or elsewhere.

About Business Meeting Interpreting
There are many aspects to business interpreting. Business conferences require interpreting for a larger scale of audience and the interpreting is carried out in a more formal fashion. Business interpreting typically occurs among a few individuals, mostly on private business dealings on a smaller scale. Other business-related scenarios such as interviews, seminars, workshops, negotiations, factory visits, telephone conferences and so on are other areas where professional, accurate business interpreting is needed.
Business interpreting takes two common forms: consecutive interpreting and simultaneous interpreting. Sometimes whispering and telephone interpreting is also used, depending on the circumstances. The interpreter is fluent in both the source and target language, and so will mediate the exchange.
Using professional business interpreters not only helps you to get your message across, expand your business and form firm business relationships, it also shows your will to communicate and work with your foreign partners. The interpreter can facilitate your business dealings and provide a global outlook to your company. Not only will the interpreter be qualified with a recognised academic degree, which demonstrates excellent analysis skills and intellectual maturity, the interpreter will also be tactful in the case of misunderstandings or tense situations, and interpreting will still be delivered in an accurate and professional manner.
Business Meeting interpretation is usually required either on-site or round a table. Delegates listen to the speaker in the source language and when the speaker has finished, the interpreter, who will have taken notes during the speech/presentation, reproduces the message in the target language for those who require it. Consecutive interpretation like this is often used for smaller meetings, business negotiations, annual corporate meetings or at official gatherings where only two or three languages are spoken.
