Starting to Understand your Chinese Customer

Strange as it seems, Mandarin and Cantonese actually have the same written language, but completely different pronunciation.

With written Chinese there are two versions: ‘Traditional’ and ‘Simplified’. The simplified version was brought in with the advent of the communist government in China, while the traditional version may be more commonly used in other countries. Some Chinese people feel strongly attached to one version or the other.
