In addition to everyday regular translations, as a Chinese language translation bureau we also perform certified translations of official documents.

Legalising your Chinese language documentation

A certified translation for use in China

  1. Your source document should first be legalised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Ministerie van Buitenlandse Zaken).
  2. Once you have done that Urgent Vertalen can perform a certified translation for you.
  3. Finally you can take all of the documentation to the Chinese Consulate, at which time this registration form needs to be filled in.

A certified translation for use in Taiwan

Once a certified translation of your document has been performed it can lawfully be used in the Netherlands. For use in Taiwan it will still need to be legalised in accordance with the procedure set out below.

  1. Having your certified translation legalised at the Court.
  2. Having your certified translation legalised at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
  3. Presenting your certified translation to the Taiwanese Consulate; note that you should fill in this registration form and take it with you when you visit the Consulate.

For both China and Taiwan you should take a copy of your documentation with you.

A certified translation for use in Hong Kong and Macau

Hong Kong and Macau are signatories to the Apostille convention; this means that for these two Special Administrative regions within China you need to have an Apostille affixed to the certified translation, which you can obtain at the Court.

All varieties of Chinese language possible

Because the Chinese language comprises a variety of different dialects it is extremely important to know which Chinese dialect you would like your document translated into.

The various Chinese dialects

1.2 Billion people have a Chinese dialect as their mother tongue

It is not actually correct to use the name “Chinese” for the language. The Chinese that we are referring to is the Chinese language group. This Chinese language group comprises a variety of languages which are spoken in China. Linguistically they form separate languages which are barely or not at all mutually understandable. However they do fall within the Sinitic language group and are all collectively referred to as “Chinese”. There are 1.2 billion people who have the Chinese language as their mother tongue.

Mandarin the official language in China

Standard Mandarin is the standard and official language within the People’s Republic of China. The Mandarin language (Putonghua of Guoyu) has also been taught in schools and used by the government since 1958. So 70% of the Chinese population understand this language, some 900 million native speakers, making this the most widely spoken language in the world. Besides native speakers, a further 180 million people speak this language as their second language.

Besides the People’s Republic of China, Mandarin is also spoken on Taiwan and in Singapore.
There are 56 officially recognised minorities in China whose languages, dialects, also have an official status alongside Mandarin. Examples of these minority languages include: Tibetan and Mongolian. These languages belong to a different language family.

The Mandarin Chinese dialects are all closely related to each other and are spoken from north-east China to 4000 km (!) further south.

Cantonese and other languages

Cantonese is spoken and written in Guangdong, Guangxi, Hongkong, Macau and the Christmas Islands. Because of their colonial past English, Portuguese and Macanese are still important there. A number of other (native) languages which are spoken in the People’s Republic of China are: Kazakh, Tajik, Kirghiz and Korean, and many languages from the Thai, the Miau-Yao and the Austroasiatic language families.

Cantonese may refer to Hong Kong Cantonese or Standard Cantonese. Cantonese is a collective name for hundreds of dialects and thousands of village dialects. Within the Cantonese dialects there are major differences in accents and there are differences in the way that Chinese characters are pronounced, making it difficult for people with different dialects to understand each other.

For the Chinese living outside China, Cantonese (Yué) is generally the official standard language. Cantonese is the main language spoken by Chinese residents of the Netherlands. A total of approximately 67 million people speak Cantonese.

There are 56 officially recognised minorities in China whose languages, dialects, also have an official status alongside Mandarin. Examples of these minority languages include: Tibetan and Mongolian. These languages belong to a different language family.

50.000 Chinese characters

The Chinese script dates back to approximately 5000-4000 BCE and is regarded as the oldest written language in the world. The Chinese script has no less than 50,000 (!) Characters.

In order to read a newspaper a knowledge of 2000-3000 characters is sufficient. A Chinese resident with an average level of education generally uses 3000 to 4000 characters, whilst a highly educated person will know 6000-8000 characters.

The Chinese script has developed into an ideographic script, which is difficult to understand without analysing the characters. This is because the Chinese characters do not give any precise indication of their pronunciation. This does mean, however, that the same script can be used fairly easily by speakers of different dialects

Hànya Pinyin

These days the Roman alphabet is used as well as the character script, the “Transcription of Chinese”, known as Hànya Pinyin, and shortened to Pinyin. Pinyin is intended to record the pronunciation when learning to write the characters.

Pinyin has 24 consonants, 15 vowels, and 4 symbols for pitch. Because the height of pitch is what makes the difference in meaning of the word from the characters. Besides this there is also a neutral pitch, which is determined by the previous pitch.

The pitches may result in a single syllable in a word having 5 different meanings, depending on the pitch at which it is pronounced.

The pronunciation of a character can be divided into pitch, starting and ending sound. The meaning of a sound is determined by pitch. The pitch symbol is stated above the vowels.
