Doing business in China – professional assistance from Fasttranslator translation agency

Chinese Translation Service Fasttranslator
Why not consult with our experienced project managers?
China figures among the fastest growing markets in the world and for that reason it is also increasingly interesting for German companies. Germany is Europe’s largest investor in China. Especially in the areas of chemical and automobile manufacturing, Germany’s business presence in China is growing. Mechanical engineering is another sector becoming increasingly active in China. With the German economy continuing to expand and Germany’s growing experience in dealing with the Chinese market, the German middle class is also getting more involved with China. The largest obstacle to doing business in China is the Chinese language, which is complex and difficult for westerners to learn. Although many Chinese have been developing very good English skills, communication in the Chinese language is essential to business success in China. If you need translations into and from Chinese, you will find the right partner in Fasttranslator translation services. Why not consult with our experienced project managers? We welcome your call.

The attraction of the Chinese market

Above all, the huge Chinese market and low costs of production and labor are what make China attractive. Chinese authorities are also providing an increasing level of support for entrepreneurs who are willing to invest. Efforts are being made to open the market and to reform laws and regulations. Reforms in the administrative system are also underway. Improved protections for intellectual property rights and copyrights of foreign companies are being implemented. For many firms China now represents a large share of global market sales. China is a location where you need professional assistance to accomplish your goals.

Chinese courtesy

When doing business in China it is essential to observe the rules of courtesy rooted in Confucian tradition. They stipulate a clear hierarchy that specifically applies to business transactions. When dealing with Chinese business professionals it is important never to state too directly what you want, thus always preserving your partner’s ability to “save face.” And requests in China always take the form of subtle hints. This is why it is so important in China to detect the nuances of business conversations in order to avoid misunderstandings. To help you understand these linguistic subtleties, we exclusively provide experienced native-speaking translators who know the peculiarities of the Chinese language and deliver accurate translations. Send us your text and you will promptly receive our prospectus! Another important rule of Chinese courtesy is to display modesty and not to extol one’s own abilities. When shaking hands, entrepreneurs should not be surprised if their Chinese partners offer a weak response. This traditional greeting form is not at all common in China and was only adopted by Chinese business professionals for their dealings with westerners. Only a very loose handshake is considered proper, however. In addition, gifts are important to the maintenance of all business relations in China. For the success of your business venture, place your trust only in those who are well versed in the rules for doing business in China. We are happy to support you in this process and we can advise you either by phone or email. We look forward to your contact!
