Chinese Website Localisation and Chinese Website Design & Development


In order for your company to be visible in China and successfully promote and sell your tourism, hospitality or retail offering to Chinese tourists, it is crucial to have some or all of your website translated into Chinese so that you can offer Chinese and English language.

However, in most cases straightly translated web sites don’t work.  At Business in China, we preach the principal of building local sites to the habits and preferences of the local audience.

Indeed, in some cases and depending on your specific goals and objectives, it may be appropriate to design and develop a new Chinese website or micro-site specific for the Chinese market and Chinese tourists.

It is important to remember that Chinese design and layout preferences are different from what we are used to in the West.  By incorporating some Chinese design, layout and navigation principles into a Chinese version of your website you will make not only your website, but your business and brand, more attractive to Chinese.

Also, due to government firewalls and regulations, if you want your website to be easily accessed in China, with a fast loading speed and optimum user experience, it is best to host your Chinese site in China, and to file and keep up to date all required registrations with the government.
