Brief History of the Chinese Language
The Chinese language (中国语文, Zhōnggúo yǔwén), or Sinitic language, is a language family that forms one of the branches of the Sino-Tibetan family of languages. Although it consists of many varieties, which can be considered separate languages (语, yǔ) or dialects (话, huà), it is often collectively referred to as “Chinese” (中文, zhōngwén). Mandarin is by far the most widely spoken form of Chinese, with 850 million speakers, followed by Wu (90 million speakers), Cantonese (70 million speakers) and Min (50 million speakers).
Today, there are approximately 1.3 billion people who speak some variety of Chinese as their native language, primarily in China, Singapore and Taiwan.

Field of expertise: Leisure and Luxury
Number of words: 17,000 words (66 pages)
Language combination: French to Chinese
A prominent Parisian communications agency specializing in the leisure and luxury industry needed a Chinese translation of their client Dior’s product catalogue (fashion and accessories, perfume and beauty products, jewellery and watches). The end client was extremely satisfied with our work, as much for the style our translators used as for the layout and typesetting. Indeed, translations in this field require translators to masterfully weave formal language with a fluid and poetic style.
The agency also entrusted us with the Indesign typesetting and layout of all the Asian language versions of the catalogue (Chinese, Korean and Japanese).
