To compare is first with emerging markets or developing nations such as China, India, and Brazil, Singapore is a far easier place to do business than any other nation. Foreign entrepreneurs are allowed 100 per cent ownership in Singapore companies and the registration process can be completed within a day or two. For most emerging nations, the number of days for business registration can even be much more than a month and is often plagued by several delays due to ambiguity in the business laws. Also Singapore has one of the finest infrastructures and business environment you can find anywhere in the world. Intellectual property rights are safeguarded in Singapore while in the emerging markets there is a huge problem with piracy and trademark or copyright infringements.
If you compare Singapore with developed nations, then again Singapore’s sound business laws make it a preferred choice over other nations. Taxes in Singapore are one of the lowest in the world. On the other hand many developed nations including countries such as The United States have used taxes to recover from the recent economic crisis. Also Singapore allows a number of options for foreign companies to setup their operations in the country and allows them 100 per cent ownership, liberal immigration laws to bring in foreign staff, cheaper infrastructure costs than other developed nations and also treats foreign owned business similar to locally owned businesses. In other developed nations, usually the foreign companies are required to invest a lot more money and also not provided with the same business benefits local owned companies enjoy.
Of course most countries don’t speak the same language, and even if English is the language of business in many nations, knowledge of that language is often restricted to the elite and educated. Currently, the global marketplace is becoming more meritocratic, in that academic qualifications no longer preclude much of the population from becoming technology savvy, and wanting to enter the global marketplace.
It therefore makes sense for companies to start translating their corporate material in order to appeal to non-English speaking consumer markets. Apart from English, in Singapore there are quite a few other spoken languages, including Malay, Tamil, Mandarin Chinese and Standard Mandarin. Demand for the companies they provide English to Chinese translation services in Singapore is high, unlike the demand for other translations.
Considering the fact that language is one of the biggest barriers when selling products/services worldwide, document translation services play a significant role in businesses. Translation services in Singapore take extra care in selecting their translators since, as earlier said any wrong/misinterpretation may create a wrong meaning of the intention.
With English to Chinese translation services in Singapore language barriers are no longer an obstacle to business. Initially choose a number of translation service agencies, then get quotes from each, and initiate some discussion with them. Based on the way they answer your questions, and the quality of customer service they provide, you can then make your final decision.
