Other Major Countries/Regions Where Mandarin Is Spoken
China has seen several waves of migration throughout its long history, even till today, resulting in the the diversity of Chinese dialects and the spread of the Chinese language and culture worldwide. With over 300 Chinese dialects and sub-dialects, Mandarin (Standard Chinese) naturally serves as the lingua franca for communication among Chinese speakers at home and abroad.
Some other countries and regions where Mandarin is spoken include:
It’s important to note that the usage of Mandarin Chinese in these countries can vary, and Mandarin is often spoken as a second language by Chinese diaspora communities in these areas.
History of Mandarin Chinese
China, one of the four ancient civilizations, has a recorded history dating back over 3,500 years. However, Mandarin Chinese only emerged relatively recently with a much shorter history than its home country, which is only several hundred years.
However, it was not until the Republican era in the early 20th century that Mandarin truly gained nationwide recognition and prominence. In 1913, Mandarin was declared the official national language by the newly established Republic of China and efforts were made to promote Mandarin education and standardize its usage.
Since 1949, the government of the People’s Republic of China continued to use Mandarin for national unity and communication between Chinese from different dialects and ethnic backgrounds. Mandarin Chinese has been the lingua franca taught in schools, and used in government affairs and media throughout the country, bridging the linguistic diversity of China.
Feel free to read more about the history of the Chinese language in our blog.
Mandarin is a Chinese dialect that originated from the northern region of China, specifically the area around Beijing, the capital city during the Ming and Qing Dynasties. Due to political and cultural factors, the distinct language spoken in this region gradually gained prominence and became the basis for what is now known as Mandarin over time.
During the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1912) dynasties, Mandarin started to emerge as the official language of the imperial court and the administrative language of the government. This helped solidify its status as the standard form of spoken Chinese.

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 Mandarin 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 Mandarin 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: It was 1956. China is a vast and populous country with 56 ethnic groups and over 302 dialects. So the government of the People’s Republic of China declared Mandarin as the official language of China in 1956 as a means to unite the nation and facilitate communication among its diverse population from different ethnic and language backgrounds.
