Traditional Chinese is the pre-reform character system that is used by most Chinese readers outside of mainland China. If your document will be used in Taiwan, Hong Kong, or Macau, it should be translated from English to Traditional Chinese.
Simplified Chinese, on the other hand, is a written form of the language that was created by the government of mainland China to promote literacy. Simplified Chinese uses about 30 to 40 percent fewer characters, and the remaining characters contain fewer strokes. This form of Chinese is used primarily in mainland China, so if the document you need translated is going to the mainland, it will most likely need to be an English to Simplified Chinese translation.
For Chinese readers in the U.S. or Canada, the common practice is to translate a document to both forms of written Chinese. While most Chinese speakers in the West use traditional characters, there is a growing Chinese immigrant population that was educated in post-reform mainland China, and is therefore more accustomed to the simplified character system. We can provide the written Chinese translation you need regardless of your target audience.
