Your home for professional Chinese to English and English to Chinese translation services

More than a decade of experience with the Chinese-English/English-Chinese language pair

In July 2000, Liu Yuanyuan, the former office manager, and Wen Jian, the former senior editor and translator from the London Financial Times' translation and editorial facility in China, set up Nanjing Shanglong Communictions, Nanjing, China's first translation agency specializing in accurate Chinese to English and English to Chinese translations of public relations, marketing and advertising materials.

The management team, steeped in Western management principles and practices acquired from their former employer, brought their professional translation skills and education in quality assurance with them. These principles and practices are applied to every translation and localization project they take on.

A professional and dedicated staff of translators and editors

Our full-time translators and editors are dedicated to the art of translation and proud of their achievements. Shanglong does not contract any of its work out to third party translation houses, part-timers or freelancers. Shanglong does not use mechanical translation tools in any part of the process.  All projects are handled and completed in our offices, assuring consistent high quality as well as the confidentiality of the work.

Shanglong is a 365-day 24-hour per day operation, fully staffed round the clock Monday-Friday, and with translators and editors available on call on weekends and all of China’s public holidays, enabling quick same day turn-around on urgent projects, including during US, Canadian and European daytime hours.

The latest in translation technology

The firm employs the most up-to-date translation tools and project management systems with Trados Workbench and associated translation memory systems as the cornerstone.

Shanglong has established a partnership with PR Newswire (world's largest distributor of corporate news releases) and is the exclusive Chinese-language translation and localization provider to several international multilingual translation agencies including and SprakGruppen in Gothenburg, Sweden and Novilinguists Multimedia in Genoa, Italy.  Shanglong also provides the English-to-Chinese translation service for the more demanding high-end clients of multilingual firms Sajan in River Falls, Wisconsin and Simultrans in Boston, Massachusetts.

Liu Yuanyuan, Director of Operations

“Yuanyuan operates the best English-Chinese translation service available. They've been our translation partner in China for 10 years. Her staff are available 24/7, and they have expertise in all industry specialties. The quality of translation is very high, requiring very little, if any, editing by our staff or our clients. Turnaround time is among the best in the business. I never hesitate to recommend Shanglong Communications to anyone interested in perfect Chinese translations.”

"We hired Shanglong to provide the Simplified Chinese version of the FITA Online portal, including converting the text in our many graphic images into Chinese.  They returned to us completed, ready to install, HTML files requiring no work other work other than us hitting the upload button to complete.  The team was responsive to our requests for changes and was very professional in the execution of the project.  I look forward to working with them again on our next project."
