Translation & Interpretation Services


Our client portfolio varies widely as does the range of translations we have undertaken both for Chinese to English & English to Chinese. From Edinburgh International Festival to local councils, SMEs to corporates, our translation work is carried out by contemporary Chinese translators who also have excellent English. Our standards are high, our prices are reasonable and should a client require specialist translation we can call upon expertise via the extensive resources available through the University.

Translation is charged at an hourly rate and proofing of artwork will also be provided.


The Confucius Institute for Scotland offers consecutive interpretation services covering a wide range of topics, including social services, business and cultural events. Our experienced interpreters are professional and reliable, and help ensure a culturally sensitive context.
