Taiwanese refers to a family of Chinese dialects which are
spoken in southern Fujian, Taiwan, and neighboring areas, and by
descendants of emigrants from these areas in diaspora.
Currently, Taiwanese is not a language certified by the court. However, we are able to provide you with court certified Mandarin interpreters who are also fluent in Taiwanese.
TeoChew, also knows as Chaozhou, Teochiu, Tiuchiu, Tiochiu, or Diojiu, is a dialect of the eastern Guangdong Province of China. It is widely spoken by overseas Chinese people in Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines, Cambodia, Thailand, Indonesia, Australia, the US, Canada and other countries where Chaozhou migrants have settled. The estimated number of TeoChew speakers is about 10 million Guangdong, China, and approximately 2-5 million outside of China.

Fuzhou dialect, also known as Foochow dialect, Foochow,
Foochowese, Fuzhounese, or Fuzhouhua, is considered the standard
dialect of the eastern part of Fujian Province of China. In
Singapore and Malaysia, the language is known as Hokchiu.
Fuzhou dialect is also widely spoken in some regions abroad, especially in Southeastern Asian countries like Malaysia and Indonesia. The city of Sibu in Malaysia is called "New Fuzhou" due to the influx of immigrants there in the early 1900s. Similarly, the language has spread to the USA, UK and Japan as a result of immigration in recent decades.
We provide Fuzhou interpreters. Please contact us for more information.
