The Best Chinese Transcriptionists in the Industry

At 1.2 billion, the number of Chinese native speakers is higher than for any other language. The term “Chinese” encompasses dozens of varieties, but Mandarin alone boasts 910,000,000 native speakers, still placing it above any other tongue. The number skyrockets when the millions of L2 speakers are added, and varieties of Chinese are spoken across China (various varieties), Taiwan (Mandarin), and Hong Kong (Cantonese) as well as in vibrant Chinese communities spanning the globe (e.g., in Singapore, the United States, and the United Kingdom).

These varieties are often entirely mutually unintelligible in speech, and intelligibility may be limited in text as well, despite a common misconception that all the Chinese languages are identical in text. Nonetheless, a transcription of a Chinese language is likely to broaden your potential audience to some degree. We at can transform your Chinese audio into professional transcripts either in Chinese (Simplified or Traditional) or in English. Our highly precise transcripts can be used for research, business, education, or anything else. We’re highly flexible.

A Combination of Human Transcriptionists and Machines Makes For Accurate Chinese Transcripts

We’re not saying technology isn’t impressive—it is. But humans are more impressive. Machines can't fully understand human language and accurately transcribe it, but they can do a pretty decent job, and the technology is rapidly improving. While speech recognition programs do produce errors in their transcripts, when these are carefully reviewed by professional human transcriptionists, the results are incredibly accurate. At, we’re sticklers for quality, so while we like to employ speech-to-text software as a helpful tool, it's our professional human transcriptionists we truly rely on (and they carefully scrutinize all machine-created transcripts we produce).

Our exceptional Chinese transcriptionists understand Chinese idioms, colloquial expressions, and nonstandard accents, and we have experts in numerous varieties of Chinese, including Mandarin, Cantonese, Wu, Min, and more. An expert in the particular variety of your recording will be assigned to your transcription task for maximum precision.

Customize Your Chinese Transcript

There are numerous ways to write Chinese, and here at, we can create a Chinese transcription solution that meets your unique needs. We can write it in hanzi (either Simplified or Traditional), we can transliterate it into pinyin (with or without diacritics), or we could even convert it into Bopomofo, also known as Zhuyin or Mandarin Phonetic Symbols, a dedicated Mandarin alphabet used in Taiwan. The recordings we transcribe come from various fields, including both academia and business, so we’re familiar with a wide range of topics.

In addition, we offer translation services and are able to provide your transcript in English instead of Chinese if you wish. Our transcriptionists are so experienced and skilled that not even background noise, several different speakers, or difficult technical terminology can trip them up.

We’re no amateurs when it comes to Chinese transcription, and that’s reflected in our top-notch work. For the utmost customization and confidentiality, turn to for all your Chinese transcription needs. On a tight deadline? That’s no problem for our lightning-fast transcriptionists, either. Our array of turnaround options has you covered.

All that’s left to do is to send us your file, which you can do from anywhere in the world, be it Nashville, New York City, Beijing (Mandarin), Shanghai (Wu), Detroit, Hong Kong (Cantonese), Taipei (Mandarin), or anywhere else.

We’re ready to get started, and if you are too, order now.
