Waterstone Translations offers exceptional English to Chinese translation services to meet the needs of businesses of all sizes around the world. English to Chinese translation services is our most requested service. It is the first language pair we offered over ten years ago, and millions of words translated later, we still enjoy doing it!
For many businesses around the globe, China is repeatedly named as one of the countries they would most like to enter and for good reasons too. With a population of 1.3 billion and double-digit GDP growth for the last 30 years, breaking into China can be extremely lucrative, but there are cultural and linguistic challenges also.
The case study on the right provides a summary of how our English to Chinese translation services was able to help one particular client raise $49.5 million by soliciting investors through the federal EB-5 program.
To say that China is a big country would be an understatement. According to the consultancy firm McKinsey, by 2025 China will have 221 cities with a population of at least 1 million. It is therefore important to know that your professional Chinese translation will need to be translated into Simplified Chinese if your audience is in Mainland China, Malaysia or Singapore. If your audience is in Hong Kong, Taiwan or Macau however, Traditional Chinese would be required.
The Chinese language is very different to English and this causes many challenges when attempting to perform professional Chinese translation in this language pair. For example, the syntax (sentence structure) is dramatically different. Attempting to translate English to Chinese without taking the syntax into account would create the impression of “literal” or “word for word” translation. This is one of the most common reasons for a client to cite poor translation quality.
At Waterstone, our professional translators have the expertise to tackle these challenges. They are culturally aware and have the skills to deliver translations that fits the style of your target audience.

Deep South Studios is a new $63.5 million full-service motion picture, television and digital media production facility. Located in New Orleans, Louisiana. It is the largest design-built independent film and television full-service facility ever constructed in the Southeastern United States.
When Deep South Studios decided to finance $49.5 million, by soliciting investors through the federal EB-5 program, they approached Waterstone Translations to translate their legal documents into Simplified Chinese. The project was 200,000 words in size, with 80,000 words required in 5 days. A team of handpicked linguists with both legal and technical expertise collaborated to maintain consistency of language and style throughout the project, ensuring that the translations were completed on time and met strict quality standards.
To be a member of our translation team, each translator will have passed our rigorous testing and must be a member of one of the internationally recognized professional translation bodies such as the American Translators Association (ATA).
