Chinese Translator for WeChat – WeChat Marketing
Wechat is an entire ecosystem for its now 1 billion users – no less in Australia which has, by some accounts, over 2 million active users and where you can do almost anything from hiring a taxi to buying a house; travel overseas or book an appointment. If you are targeting China, Chinese consumers, or developing relationships with Chinese, you have to be on WeChat.
So the first thing to understand is it is a Chinese Language system and if you want to reach an audience your communications have to be in Chinese; sure it has a translation app – but use it with caution and for simple messaging, not marketing or deal-making!
Here are some helpful pointers for finding a Chinese translator for wechat
- Purpose – are you simply wanting to make friends – in which case use the in-built translation. Or are you in a legal dispute where your messages need to be legally translated and certified for a court? Or are you developing marketing messages which have to be translated in Chinese – for such situations you need to find a qualified and experienced Chinese translator to help.
- Location – a Chinese Translator in the United States or even in China may not have the local knowledge of your Australian product or service, or be available to meet and talk with you about what you are trying to achieve.
- Experience – you want to know that whoever you choose has a good track record backed up by qualifications – you should select one with plenty of demonstrated translation experience and marketing capabilities (or legal if that is the case). A recent graduate or unqualified person could be a risky proposition.
- Scale – a single freelancer might be here today and gone tomorrow. If, like many of our clients, you are starting a China journey, it is of huge value to find a Chinese translator service that you can build a partnership with, to understand your aims, your language, and to be around whenever you need them.
- Other services – You may need other services, such as China marketing or a Chinese name – a single freelancer won’t be able to deliver such a range of services, so choose a translation company with a range of services who will build up holistic understanding for you and grow with you.
- Marketing support – WeChat needs a strategy and a campaign developed in order to maximise the value; there may be other off-line or website processes to consider; and how to get your products and services into the market and meet Chinese laws and standards
- Budget – a one-off message is obviously inexpensive, but a legal case or a marketing campaign requires ongoing support and sometimes significant budgets.
