An interpreter is a person who converts a thought or expression in a source language into an expression with a comparable meaning in a target language either simultaneously in "real time" or consecutively after one party has finished speaking. The interpreter's function is to convey every semantic element (tone and register) and every intention and feeling of the message that the source-language speaker is directing to target-language recipients

Whatever your product or your industry, as soon as you start selling internationally, translation or localization of your product into the language used in the given market quickly becomes a necessity.
Localization (sometimes shortened to "l10n") is the process of adapting a product or service to a particular language, culture, and desired local "look-and-feel." In localizing a product, in addition to idiomatic language translation, such details as time zones, money, national holidays, local color sensitivities, product or service names, gender roles, and geographic examples must all be considered. A successfully localized service or product is one that appears to have been developed within the local culture.

Are you confused about the different types of Chinese and what you need? To put it simply simplified and traditional Chinese refer to the two styles of written Chinese separating mainland China which uses the simplified version with Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan which still uses the more difficult traditional version of Chinese characters. On the other hand Mandarin and Cantonese refer to the spoken languages with Mandarin being most widely spoken in mainland China, Taiwan and Singapore with Hong Kong and the areas around it in Guangzhou speaking Cantonese. If you need more details about the differences between the two and which ones you need please see our article on the matter here.
