Language Overview

Traditional Chinese is used in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. It’s similar to Mandarin but uses Traditional Chinese characters, a legacy of ancient Chinese civilization.
Market Insights
In Taiwan, there’s a strong preference for digital and mobile content, with a particular interest in social media, e-commerce, and gaming. The audience tends to be tech-savvy and open to international content.
Cultural Context
Communication in Traditional Chinese is deeply influenced by cultural norms and values. Understanding the nuances of formality and social hierarchy is crucial for effective engagement.
Writing System and Typography
Traditional Chinese characters are used, which are more complex than Simplified Chinese characters. Text flows left-to-right, and fonts must support the intricacies of these characters.
Phonetics and Phonology
Traditional Chinese, like Mandarin, is tonal, but the pronunciation and intonation can vary, especially in regional dialects. This poses challenges for learners and non-native speakers.
Grammatical Structure
The sentence structure in Traditional Chinese is similar to Mandarin, primarily SVO. However, there are differences in expressions and idiomatic usage compared to Simplified Chinese.
Media and Text Layout
Translating into Traditional Chinese tends to result in slight text expansion, around 10-15% more than English. Subtitles should consider the complexity of the characters, with a limit of about 35 characters per line.
Localization Challenges
Localization challenges include adapting content to fit Taiwanese cultural contexts and preferences. Idiomatic expressions and humor in Traditional Chinese can be particularly difficult to translate accurately.
Technical Considerations
Special attention is needed for the correct rendering of Traditional Chinese characters across different software and digital platforms. Compatibility issues are a common concern.
Other information
Traditional Chinese is celebrated for its calligraphy and literary arts, reflecting a deep connection to historical and cultural roots.
