Good morning,

I have a question, but I am not sure in which forum I should post it. I am trying to figure out into which Chinese, we should translate a Spanish Website aimed at the Chinese people living in Spain. I guess, most of them come from Mainland China, but this is just a guess.

Do you recommend the Website is translated into Simplified or Traditional Chinese? Any other considerations?

Thank you very much in advance

Please, I would appreciate your answers either in English or Spanish. I don't speak Chinese

Thank you very much for your time!

Have a nice day

Targeted at Chinese refugees? Feb 5, 2009

All Chinese refugees in Spain are from the southeast coast of the People's Republic of China. Documents for them should be translated into simplified Chinese, the official language of PRC. Most Chinese refugees are badly educated, quite some finished only primary school. That said, the simpler the translation, the better.

Hope this helps.

Penelope,

Here's a Wiki page that gives a general description on the demographics of ethnic Chinese living in Spain.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_people_in_Spain

I myself have no knowledge on the subject of the Chinese population in Spain. But based on the statistics from the Wiki page, I would say you want to go with Simplified Chinese if you had to pick one. It's the standard written form of Chinese used by people living in Mainland China.



Nowadays, Madrid, Barcelona, and the Canary Islands are home to the largest Chinese communities of Spain. Their population is growing rapidly; their numbers are estimated to have multiplied tenfold in just 13 years. Unlike earlier waves of Chinese immigrants in other countries, over 80% of the Chinese in Spain come from Zhejiang's Qingtian County, with smaller numbers from Guangdong and Fujian. Others have come from Hong Kong, Macau, and Chinese communities of Southeast Asia (especially Vietnam and Philippines), Latin America, and Europe.
