Welcome to Dr Kirk’s Cross-Cultural Consultancy and Chinese Interpreting & Translation Service

Doing business with the Chinese is increasingly common. There is a need for effective oral and written communication between the Middle Kingdom and the United Kingdom. Winning a deal and maintaining good ‘Guanxi’/ relations requires understanding.

Understanding what your client or customer is saying is vital. Increasingly British institutions and companies are working with people whose first language is Mandarin Chinese, the official language of Mainland China, Taiwan and Singapore. A good Mandarin interpreter is often crucial in helping you to overcome the language and cultural barriers. The quality of interpreting matters greatly for any individuals and companies when you are holding business meetings with Chinese-speaking suppliers or visitors. When you are able to communicate clearly and effectively, it will help you in securing an important contract or building long-lasting relationships.

    We seem to have same professional interests (cultural aspects of translation). Check my (Ngala Johnson) “Cultural Lacunae in Translation” Université de Montréal, 1989.
