Simplified Chinese is used in mainland China and Singapore and by ethnic Chinese in Malaysia. Although spoken Chinese in countries that use Simplified or Traditional Chinese is mutually intelligible, Simplified Chinese has fewer characters than Traditional Chinese and contains variants of traditional characters with fewer brushstrokes.
Effective communication and market penetration in this segment demand linguistic precision, a nuanced cultural grasp, domain-specific expertise, and adherence to localization best practices. Considering the expansive user base, with over 1.3 billion native speakers in China alone and a burgeoning internet population surpassing 904 million users who predominantly navigate digital content in Simplified Chinese, the stakes for accuracy and cultural resonance in translation are particularly high. Additionally, high-quality, consistent localization solutions for Simplified Chinese require advanced AI translation technology combined with native, in-country linguists for a quick turnaround time.
Chinese Dialects in The People’s Republic of China, Singapore, and Malaysia
Among the three countries that primarily use Simplified Chinese – Mainland China, Singapore, and Malaysia – each country has its own dialect of Mandarin Chinese:
- Mandarin Chinese
- Malaysian Mandarin
- Singaporean Mandarin
With so many different cultural nuances that vary across regions, the importance of understanding local communities is critical for ensuring success in whatever product or service is entering the market.
Through our in-country, subject matter expert linguists, and with over 20 years of experience, CSOFT understands the importance of distinguishing different dialects of Mandarin in countries that use Simplified Chinese, depending on the project.
