The demand for a good Mandarin translator is quite high. This is due to China’s globalization. The country offers cheap goods, raw materials and labor. More and more businesses are turning to China for these. Chinese tourism is also at its peak, with Westerners becoming interested to see the Great Wall, Beijing and Shanghai, among others.

Here are some basic things about Mandarin before hiring a translator.

Mandarin has polysyllabic words. New word are formed by adding affixes. There are also loanwords from Mongolian and Manchurian.

It follows the subject- verb -object syntax and is very analytical, focusing more on word order and inflection instead of inflection and affixes to indicate person, number, mood, case and tense.

Many Chinese words have made their way to the West such as chá, and martial arts words gōngfu and tàijíquán. There are also many English loanwords today like kěkǒu kělè (Coca Cola), kāfēi (coffee) and wēishìjì (whisky).

The writing system of pinyin uses the Latin alphabet, except V. The Chinese calligraphy dates back to 3,000 years ago during the Shang Dynasty. There are about 80,000 Chinese characters or words. Only 3,000 of these are used for daily conversations to convey about 99% of communication. One Chinese character can mean several things.

The two writing systems most used are Simplified in mainland China, Singapore and other Chinese communities in Southeast Asia, and Traditional in Taiwan, Macau, Hongkong and Chinese communities in North America.

If you need the help of a Mandarin translator to help you with oral Chinese, remember that intonation is everything. The phrase “wǒ xiǎng wèn nǐ” could mean either “I want to ask you” or “I want to kiss you”, depending on the intonation.
