Professional Tattoo Translations - Chinese
Chinese is one of the most spoken languages around the world (approx. 1.176 billion). Chinese characters may be used horizontally or vertically. For tattoos, the vertical presentation is often used. Chinese or the Sinitic languages (汉语/漢語, pinyin: Hànyǔ; 华语/華語, Huáyǔ; or 中文, Zhōngwén) is a language family consisting of languages mutually unintelligible to varying degrees. Thusly, the tattoo translation absolutely requires the expertise of a professional. Originally the indigenous language spoken by the Han Chinese in China, it forms one of the two branches of Sino-Tibetan family of languages.
Spoken Chinese is distinguished by its high level of internal diversity, although all spoken varieties of Chinese are tonal and analytic. There are between seven and thirteen main regional groups of Chinese (depending on classification scheme), of which the most spoken, by far, is Mandarin (about 850 million), followed by Wu (90 million), Min (70 million), and Cantonese (70 million). Chinese is classified as a macrolanguage with 13 sub-languages in ISO 639-3, though the identification of the varieties of Chinese as multiple "languages" or as "dialects" of a single language is a contentious issue. Standard Mandarin is the official language of the People's Republic of China (PRC) and the Republic of China (ROC), as well as one of four official languages of Singapore. Chinese—de facto, Standard Mandarin—is one of the six official languages of the United Nations.
