About our translator


简体中文是世界上使用最多的语言之一。全世界有超过 13.5 亿人使用它作为第一语言和第二语言

For those whose first language is not Simplified Chinese, typing and translating Simplified Chinese to English can be difficult. There are many websites and agencies that provide online and offline translation and interpreting services. Those services can either be expensive or if it is free the quality of translation is often poor and unreliable.

While it makes sense for paying professionals to translate highly specialized subjects and official documents - there is no need to pay for translating commonly spoken words and phrases. For this our online software can be used.

Our translation software gives you high-quality translation results for FREE. This is because it uses a powerful Google translation API to instantly translate sentences between Simplified Chinese to English. You can use our tool to translate up to 500 characters per request. But the good news is you can make unlimited requests.

While the translation result is not always 100% accurate - with a few modifications it can be pretty accurate. We have also integrated a Google Input tool which can be used to easily edit or modify the translated Simplified Chinese text. Besides, this software is evolving and improving every day and shortly we hope it can produce near to perfect translation.

We have also integrated functionality with which you can download or copy the translated text and either share them on social media or use on Word Processing software (such as Microsoft Word) for further formatting.

If you have any other suggestions on how to improve Simplified Chinese to English, please let us know on our Facebook page.

Finally, we would appreciate it if you like and share our page with your friends and family.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Transliteration and Translation?

Transliteration is a process of transferring similar-sounding words from one language to another. To give you an example, typing “Ni jiso shenme mingzi?“ will be transliterated into “你叫什么名字“.

Whereas, translation is a process of converting the written word from one language to another. For E.g. converting text written from Simplified Chinese to English.

How does Simplified Chinese to English translation works?

Our online translation software uses either Google, Microsoft, or Yandex to translate word, sentence, and phrase from Simplified Chinese to English.

Whenever you enter words, sentences, or phrases in Simplified Chinese and click on the “Translate” button, our software sends a request to Google, Microsoft, or Yandex for translation.

Their backend system uses some of the cutting edge technologies such as artificial intelligence, Web APIs, Big Data, etc to perform higher quality translations, and send back the response in English.

All this process just takes a split second.

Can I download this translation software?

At a moment you can only use our Simplified Chinese to English translator online.

However, you can download and install Google Translation Chrome extension tool on your Google Chrome browser.

With this, you can either translate the entire page you are browsing by clicking the translation icon on the browser toolbar. Or, you can also highlight and right-click the section of the text, and click on the “Translate” icon to get the translation result in a language you have chosen from the drop-down menu.

Why is the translation not accurate?

Our Simplified Chinese to English translation software uses automated machine-language technology provided by Google or Microsoft. As humans are not involved, in some cases it will miss the context and cultural nuances of the language.

Having said so, our translator is useful for those who need help framing the sentence and get a general idea of what the sentence or phrase is conveying the message. With little modification, you can get near to perfect translation. We have also embedded Simplified Chinese to English transliteration, with a help of which you can easily edit, modify or add Simplified Chinese to English text.

Furthermore, the Google and Microsoft Translation API is evolving every day and as time goes by the translation result is going to be pretty accurate.

Is it FREE?

Yes. Our translator is 100% free.

However, we have few restrictions in place to ensure that robots or automated software are not abusing our service.

At any time you can translate up to a maximum of 500 characters per request. But you can make unlimited requests provided that you don’t misuse our software.
