What does our website translation service involve?
Areas that we cover in our Chinese website localization services:
- Content and Language – do all the words, phrases and metaphors work in a Chinese culture? Localization adapts language, style, tone and message to suit this target locale.
- Pictures – Will your Chinese audience respond to the text or images? If images then we need to look at how they are used.
- Navigation – Chinese don’t look at a website in the same way as Westerners? The Western eye does one thing and the Chinese another. Good navigation is about good usability and localization has to adapt to local expectations to ensure visitors stay and your site.
- Data – remember not everyone thinks in Dollars and Euros. Localization looks at on-site data such as dates, times, currencies, phone numbers, units of measurement, forms and much more.
It is a common question: Does my Chinese website need to be hosted inside Mainland China? No, you don’t need to, however, we do suggest you to host it in Mainland China. Why? Please continue reading.
Website hosting inside Mainland China
We recommend you hosting your website in Mainland China if you have a business entity in Mainland China, as website localisation hosting should make your website more accessible to your target users, which helps with Chinese SEO.
If your website is hosted in Mainland China, you must obtain an ICP (Internet Content Provider) licence that is a permit issued by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology to permit China-based websites to operate in China. The ICP licence numbers for Chinese websites can often be found on the bottom of the website homepage.
Website hosting outside Mainland China
If you don’t have a business entity in Mainland China, we would recommend to you to have your website hosted outside Mainland China. Hosting in Hong Kong will be a good solution as it is in close vicinity to Mainland China and makes your website more accessible to Chinese users.
If you need your site reviewed as part of your China plans, please give us a call. We’d love to help!
