How the Incredible Diversity of Chinese Leads to Incredible Difficulty for Some
When you’re looking for Chinese to English translation services, it is important to know exactly what kind of Chinese you’re looking at. Something that many people from outside of China and the surrounding areas do not know is that there are over two-hundred different dialects of the Chinese language. Mandarin and Cantonese are certainly the most popular and well-known, even being considered independent languages in some places. However, they are technically among the many hundreds of individual dialects that make Chinese an extremely diverse language.
Not as Easy as A, B, C, Either
The incredible diversity of China and its many language variations make it one of the more difficult regions for some business and academic professionals to create contacts within. While China enjoys tourism from all over the world, the language barrier remains strong, even for enthusiastic visitors. This is due in part to the fact that many languages – English, Russian, Arabic and more – use different characters and writing techniques than Chinese, adding another layer of difficulty in learning the language. The resulting frustration often leads students to give up learning altogether, and professionals from reaching out to others within these regions.
