Do you still need an interpreter in Shenzhen?

More and more young people are coming to work in Shenzhen, and the young people speak much better English than the older people. If you are going to deal with the factories in Shenzhen for a small business, you don’t necessarily need a translator.  You need a good interpreter when you are doing a serious and big business because you can’t afford any mistake or misunderstanding.

Artificial Intelligence has become a big thing in Shenzhen China. Online or cloud translate APP is one of the AI things, it has got smarter and smarter, the translation work is more and more accurate, so the understanding between you and your Chinese suppliers can be more and more efficient.

Google Translate is one of the APP’s that I would like to recommend to you. However, you will have a problem to get access to Google Service while you are in Shenzhen China because there is a “Great Wall” between China and the rest of the world, you can’t visit Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, Google, and so on without using a tool called VPN.

What VPN do you recommend?

There are a lot of free VPN services but the problem is that it is free and the bandwidth is very limited, so you will find that it is very slow or sometimes it is even impossible to use those free VPN services.

So you want to have a dedicated server that is owned by yourself, no one else has it, and you need a dedicated IP address for your server as well, so your server can’t be blocked if you don’t say something bad about China,

The way how VPN works is that you get access to your own server that is not blocked in China, and from your server, you can browse all the websites. It seems very difficult but Shadowsocks have made it very easy for you.

Go visit Shadowsocks’s website Download Page to download the server file and install this file on your server, and download the client file to install on your device.

 

 

 

 

Business has been quiet in Shenzhen China

Shenzhen is a nice city in October, and We as interpreters, are always very business during October and December every year, however we have not got many inquires from you, our customers for a long time, I don’t know why, but I assume that the business has not been very good, and our customers don’t even want to come to see their factories or suppliers in China, that is why they don’t need our services to help them succeed in business.

Anyway, I just want to tell you that we are still alive and in fact our team is getting bigger and bigger, and I just want to share a picture with you that was taken on a wedding for one of our members during the national holidays in China.

You are still and always welcome to send us an inquiry, and let’s keep in touch.

Why We Think You Need An Interpreter in Your Factories Visits?

Are you coming to Shenzhen soon, but still not sure whether you need to get an interpreter?

Are you worried that hiring an interpreter will maybe just a waste of money as most manufacturers now have English-speaking staff? 

Are you wondering if interpreters nowadays are charging too high?

We are here to give you some answers today.

As English gets increasingly universal, the majority of international salespersons now speak English. Even better, some technical personnel can communicate with foreigners freely too. 

As good as that sounds, please allow me to tell you why we interpreters are still necessary.

First of all, before you start the visits, you just need to tell us the addresses and contact persons, we will arrange a more efficient schedule for you in line with their locations. Of course, if you haven’t contacted any persons, we could recommend you some reliable manufactures.

Secondly, some factories are very far away from the city, so it is not very convenient for them to arrange a car pick-up service. We, on the other hand, will contact the supplier before hand and order car rental service like Uber or other on-call caps, which will save you time and effort.

Last but not least, we charge you only 100 US dollars a day, yet we will play numerous roles, such as assistant, tour guide, sourcing agent or freight forwarder. With us by your side, visiting several factories a day and getting all the information you need within your precious time is quite possible. After the visit, you may want to take some samples with you, but it may take several days to collect all of them, by which you could have left China. A good solution is to ask your suppliers to send the samples to us and we will ship them to you all at once. 

So, don’t hesitate to contact us if you have decided to come here!

Uber is also available in Shenzhen

When you need to travel around Shenzhen, it is better if you can use a cell phone APP such as Uber to book a car and take you whereever you want, nowaways the technology is here and it is very convinient to get a car to take you around, it is not so easy for foreigners to get a driving license in China, but with the APP’s, things become very easy.

With this APP, you can book a cab, and see where the cab is on Google Maps. However, most of these drivers don’t know English, and it is difficult for you to type your destination. We can help you do that. We help you find the destination in Chinese and you can just copy and paste on the APP, we can also talk to the driver where you are going.

Guide to the factories in Shenzhen China

A lot of small factories or medium size factories don’t have their overseas marketing team, they might have a small team for the local market on 1688.com, but it is too expensive to have a website on Alibaba International, and it is not cheap to hire some people who speak English for the international companies, so these factories outsource their international marketing and sales.

Some small companies like us who speak English and know the factories and product well would like to set up a company with an Alibaba international website, and promote the product and factories on the internet, reply to the inquires from overseas clients, and then when the customers are interested, they might want to come and see the factories, so that we take them to see the factories.
