Languages are complex and learning them is an art.

Hong Kong, the administrative region of China, is known for its easy laws for businesses.

But you can’t get through to the native population if you don’t advertise to them in Cantonese, which is the official language in Hong Kong. Effective communication is very important for a business.

The Cantonese language is written in traditional Chinese characters. But its alphabets also have characters that are not used by other varieties of Chinese languages. On the other hand, Mandarin is written in simplified Chinese characters. Another difference is the number of tones. Where Mandarin Chinese has four tones, Cantonese has six. In China’s province of Guangdong, the Cantonese language is spoken by the majority. Most of its speakers can be found in Southern China where it is the primary language. It is important to know for businesses when to use traditional characters and when to turn to simplified characters.

Machine Translation:

If you think you can add the language code and get automatic character translation of Cantonese then you would be wrong. Even if you get the translation from a machine, it will not be accurate. Google Translate and Microsoft indeed offer a lot of features. You can even upload an Excel file and get its translation. However, these tools like Google Translate cannot accurately read an Excel file or the selected text from a document.

There are aspects like the character set and grammatical structure that cannot be handled by Google Translate or Microsoft Translator. All the software lacks the necessary elements to understand the cultural aspects of a language. Whether it is the traditional characters or the simplified characters, only a native translator can interpret them accurately. Also, for legal reasons, it is not advisable to rely on machines when it comes to translation.

The difference between simplified Chinese and traditional Chinese also separates them from each other.

When it comes to the experience with translations, you may have come across projects that involved a Japanese translation, Italian Translation, or even Spanish translation. However, Cantonese language services are not that popular, or should we say lesser-known. It is because Mandarin or Chinese is considered the only language of countries such as China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.

Everyone has heard about Mandarin but it will be of no use to you in Hong Kong and Macau where Cantonese is the tongue majority of people speak. People can’t learn one of them and understand the other because the two are not mutually intelligible. In Southeastern China, this tongue holds a high place among its speakers. They consider it an integral part of their culture and continue to spread it even when they move overseas. However, if someone is moving to Hong Kong for job, they should know that English is also pretty common in the region and people can get by without learning a difficult vernacular.

But if someone needs a translation into Cantonese, they should get in touch with us because we have the right people for Cantonese services. With our dedicated client service, we can provide you with a professional translator for all your specific needs.

Our world is a massive place and we don’t have enough time in our lives to learn everything about all the cultures and traditions of the people who live around us. But that doesn’t mean we cannot try. There are many steps that we can take to bridge the gap between different nations. If we go forward with the sole aim of trying to understand them then we definitely won’t fail.

In order to understand them, we can try to learn what differentiate them from us. And another thing that we must do is end stereotypes and racial slurs. A lot of us look at any brown colored person and proceed to call them Arab. This is an example of the kind of things we should avoid.

The culture of Asia is multilayered. There are many misconceptions about the people of this region. One of them is that people often think Mandarin and Cantonese are the same language. In truth, the two are very different. Cantonese is also spoken in China but it’s a more dominant language in Hong Kong and Macau. In order to enable people of that region to communicate with English speakers, Cantonese English Translations will be necessary. They will also be needed for official purposes, for instance visa application.

Is There Cantonese in Google Translate?

Everyone loves and trusts the services offered by Google. But the company’s app for translations is not always helpful. You may use it as an English translator or even a Chinese translator but not for Cantonese. Although it does offer support for most of the popular languages, it can’t assist those who plan on visiting Hong Kong any time soon. Cantonese is not only quite popular in some regions of China but also the official language of Hong Kong. But currently, Google Translate does not offer its translations. If you are in Hong Kong and you change your location, you can get voice support. This feature, however, does not work after the update of the app.
