Cantonese translation services
Translation services for Chinese languages including Cantonese.
Cantonese is a tonal language. This means that the same syllable can change in meaning depending on the pitch at which this syllable is said. The same syllable can therefore have six to nine different meanings depending on the tone used when speaking. The Zhuang languages, the Hmu language, and the Hlai languages are all related to Cantonese. Mandarin also bears some similarity to Cantonese in that Mandarin is also a tonal language. However, these languages are so different that their speakers are unable to understand each other. Cantonese is spoken by around 67 million people and is written with Chinese characters.
