Facts About the Chinese Language
Discover these fascinating facts about the variants and written forms of Chinese language and the whereabouts of the Chinese speakers around the world.
Is Chinese the Only Language Spoken in China?
No. Chinese is not the only language spoken in China. In fact, Chinese is not the name of a single tougue but more of an umbrella term for a group of dialects spoken by China’s vast and diverse population. Broadly speaking, when people say Chinese, they typically refer to Mandarin (aka Putonghua or Standard Chinese), the official spoken dialect of China used by the masses of its population and government, education, and media nationwide.
The vast land and rich history of China have facilitated its incredible linguistic and cultural diversity, reflecting in the emergence of numerous regional dialects and minority languages across the nation.
Despite Mandarin serves as a lingua franca between Chinese from different regions, languages like Cantonese, Hokkien, Shanghainese, etc., are primarily spoken as a dominant language in specific regions.

How Many Chinese Speakers are There in the World?
Chinese is one of the world’s oldest languages and the UN language together with English, French, Russian, Spanish, and Arabic. As Chinese emerged as a global economic powerhouse, the Chinese language starts to hold a significant status in the global linguistic landscape with a whopping 1.4 billion speakers worldwide, with native speakers and learners combined.
Chinese immigrants’ long history dates back to the Ming Dynasty. For hundreds of years, generations of Chinese immigrants have brought the Chinese culture and language to every corner of the world, resulting in the scatter of the Chinese communities overseas. In present day, over 16% of the world’s population speak a Chinese variant/dialect as the first language within and beyond China’s borders.
Here are the top ten countries with the most population of Chinese speakers.
These numbers sourced from the Internet are approximate and for reference only. The actual number could vary based on different criterias.
Two Forms of Written Chinese
The beautifully designed Chinese characters are one distinctive feature that seperates the Chinese language from the alphabetic languages accstomed to the Western world. Currently, there are two Chinese writing systems in use in different regions and for various contexts. One is Simplified Chinese, and the other is Traditional Chinese. The former is the simiplifed version of the latter, which was introduced in the 1950s by the Chinese government to increase literacy across mainland China, where Simplified Chinese continues its existence till today.
Compared to Traditional Chinese characters, the simplified ones consist of less strokes with simpler structures, which have provided the masses of Chinese with a much easier access to acquire knowledge, increasing the country’s overall literacy rates. Despite simplified Chinese holds the official status in Mainland China, regions like Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan still used traditional Chinese as their official written script, preserving the original complexity and richness of the traditional characters that have evolved over the past 3,500 years in time.

Please fill in the form and contact our expert for a detailed quote tailored to your specific project.
A6: The turnaround time for the project depends on various factors, such as the length and complexity of the text, the subject matter, and the translator’s workload and schedule. Generally, smaller projects can be completed within a few days, while larger projects may take weeks or longer. With thousands of experienced translators, we can effortlessly handle a million-word project with quality and efficiency.

A8: When you need to get a general idea of a foreign text/passage and accuracy doesn’t matter to you, translation APPs can be an ideal tool. Some of the popular apps for English Chinese translation include Google Translate, Microsoft Translator, and iTranslate. These apps come with amazing features such as text translation, voice translation, and dictionary lookup. However, the accuracy is questionable and could vary with different subject matters. It’s recommended to try different apps and choose the one that best suits your specific translation needs. But think twice before using such APPs to translate important/highly technical documents.
A9: While Google Translate can generate Chinese English translations instantly and provide a basic understanding, you need to bear in mind that the results may not always be accurate or contextually appropriate. Google Translate, or any machine translation tool in the matter, is ideal for translating simple phrases or getting a general idea. But when aiming for professional and accurate translations, it’s best to avoid using these machine-powered tools and work with experienced human translators who can understand the linguistic and cultural nuances between both languages and provide high-quality translations with a tailored personal touch.
A10: The decision highly depends on your target audience and their language preferences. Mandarin Chinese is the most widely spoken lingua franca in China. Generally, it’s the default/first choice for translation to reach a larger customer base. However, when targeting a specific region or community that predominantly speaks a Chinese dialect other than Mandarin, such as Hokkien or Cantonese, it’s more linguistically appropriate and culturally acceptable to translate into that specific dialect.
Chinese is a group of languages and dialects spoken by Han Chinese and some minority groups, while Mandarin is a form of Chinese dialect but it is also the official language of China. Mandarin is a spoken language. If you need to convert your English text to Mandarin, that means you will have to translate English text to Chinese Simplified, which is the written Chinese. China is a vast and multinational state with over 302 individual languages spoken within its borders, but 91% of its population speaks Mandarin. So it’s natural for foreigners to take Mandarin as Chinese. Continue exploring their differences in our blog.
A12: No. They are two distinct Chinese dialects with different status. Mandarin is the official language and lingua franca of China while Cantonese is primarily spoken in the Guangdong Province of China, Hong Kong, and Macau. However, Cantonese is the official language in both Hong Kong and Macau other than Mandarin. Although the two languages share some similarities, their pronunciations, vocabulary, and grammar vary significantly, making Mandarin and Cantonese mutually unintelligible. Distinct from translating from Chinese Simplified to English or English to Chinese Simplified, translating Cantonese requires native Cantonese translators to ensure linguistic and cultural accuracy. If you need translation specifically into Cantonese, remember to work with Wordspath. Cantonese translation is also one of our specialized services.
A13: No, normally you can’t, The Internet restrictions and censorship in China has limited or blocked some of the online services, such as Google services. So it’s wise to have alternative translation methods or apps available when visiting China.
A14: With a history that spans six thousands of years, Chinese is the world’s oldest written language that is still in use. The earliest Chinese writing originated from the oracle bone inscriptions found in the Shang Dynasty (1766-1122 BC). You can read more about the evolution of Chinese characters in our blog.
A15: In Chinese, “how are you” can be translated into “你好吗？”. However, instead of using “你好吗？” to greet friends or acquaintances, Chinese are more likely to say “吃了吗(chī le ma)？” or “最近怎么样 (zuì jìn zěn me yàng)？”, which English equivalents are respectively “Have you had your meal?” and “How’s it going?”.
