About Chinese

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 States, 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 main language is Cantonese, and Min. The variations of Chinese 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.

What forms of interpretation can TJC Global provide for business?

Video/videoconference interpreting: (also Video Remote Interpreting 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, who 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, 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.
