How to improve Google translation from 70% to 90% accuracy ... in just seconds

Using Google Translate to support your business development in WeChat.


Use one of the links below to download or open the Google translate app.


Google Translate:





The Google translate app works by translating in pairs. e.g. English (EN) to Chinese (CN) and has a button with two arrows that you can press, to reverse the flow from EN to CN or CN to EN.


By making two translation passes from EN to CN and then from CN back to EN, you can markedly improve the accuracy of your translation, reading as if you are Chinese.


10 steps.

  1. First you will need to Choose your language pair EN to CN.

  2. Type what you want to say in EN - Note that the language pair will display with EN on left and CN on the right in both the Desktop and the Mobile version with two way arrows in the middle. The two arrows are a button that you can press.

  3. Press translate = EN to CN

  4. Copy the CN translation

  5. X the EN translation

  6. Paste the CN translation into the translate window

  7. Use the arrows to Switch the language pair to Chinese-to-English.

  8. Press translate = CN to EN

  9. Check the English version for inaccuracies, and correct if necessary.

  10. Rinse and repeat, until your meaning is clear.




This workflow is for the beginning of your journey with China, while you're still in your home market.

For those already living in China, with a Chinese SIM card, Google translate won't work. Stay tuned for my next piece on alternatives to Google translate that you can use if you're permanently based in China.

SOCIAL COMMERCE INFLUENCERS The tide is turning - Chinese consumers are seeking authentic content instead of slick content. With the advent of mobile technology, the capacity to create great content to present an authentic experience now sits with brand owners. In-sourced VS Out-sourced. While it is important that you have an 'overarching' strategy for your China content, it is OK (and we consider this to be a best practice - even for enterprise) to test the water first. Allow time to prepare the soft skills capability of your key people. Tap into 'humanising' your brand through personal connection. The current trend - thanks to apps and devices - is for brands to make the shift towards being able to create their own influencer content on affordable mobile devices. The most authentic influencers are your own people - who know your products. In the case of China, language has been the main barrier. This is no longer such a big issue. WeChat has built-in translation. RCN teaches a simple method to improve Google translation from 70% to 90% accuracy...in just seconds. CLICK HERE TO READ THE ARTICLE This can eliminate the need to hire expensive, full time multilingual staff - but only works if you are using non-technical, basic communication. If you have context which involves technical writing, there are no short cuts, you should use our translation service. The key to the success of this time saving, cost reduction - is to coach your business development people with two key skills: HOW TO CREATE AND CONTENT AND SHARE IT and HOW TO USE WECHAT FOR BUSINESS . Simon Young will teach your key people how to be an influencer just like him. From the C-level executive point of view, cost efficiency and cost effectiveness go hand in hand. The aim is to achieve quality of customer engagement without having to increase the head count / quantity of FTE (Full Time Equivalency) Teach your people well! TAKE A SMALL STEPS Sometimes being strategic, involves a tactical activity. Your company can iteratively (bit by bit / progressively) develop your Chinese facing brand. Instead being big as Ben Hur, you take a modular approach to doing things 'Just in time', On-Demand and Self-Paced, parallel to the proportionate revenue of the activity. There is no point spending more than you are making and having an Enterprise system to scale, when you have no customers is a stretch to far for most organisations. Do something smaller and affordable to gets runs on the board, accelerate your learning and prepare to scale by working out your business process across a few, before engaging many. You can also iteratively integrate China facing business processes. We have seen what happens when Western leaders offend Chinese people, e.g. Dolce and Gabbana and NBA leadership both respectively put billions of dollars of revenue in jeopardy with some insensible behaviour. This kind of risk can be mitigated through some simple training, like doing WeChat for Business .
  • There are over 50m Chinese tourists living outside China and 1.4 billion in China. \ It only costs USD$500 to get started to reach them.

There are 100,000 Chinese people living in Perth. They are going to buy a special on Singles Day. But what special can they buy for their Friend networks overseas?
