As early as the 1870s, Chinese immigrants were coming to the area of Boston Massachusetts. After the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 was passed the flow began again. And today, Boston’s Chinatown is the third largest in the United States and one of the most densely populated areas of the City of Boston. Considering this great concentration of Chinese and Vietnamese immigrant families, it’s no surprise that traditional events like The August Festival and Chinese New Year are still popularly celebrated in Boston Chinatown.
Driving this wave of Chinese immigration to Boston, is a desire for better quality living. Boston is home to not only clean environments but also a strong education system- the latter being of high value to the Chinese. Translation services in Boston have provided document translations for individuals who’ve traveled with their children from China to Boston for the sole purpose of enrolling themselves or their child at one of the city’s prestigious universities. Requests for Chinese into English translations of academic documents continue to be in great demand and not just for student diplomas and transcripts. Chinese website translation and Chinese translation of course descriptions are also requested so students and parents can search for that information on-line.
With more Chinese families immigrating to Boston, there’s also a significant increase in Chinese tourists visiting the city. Many of these tourists are either visiting their relatives who are already living there, or are dedicating all their time to checking out the city’s beautiful parks and historical landmarks. Forming a great impression on these tourists begins with the assurance that they can do the basic things that English speaking tourists can- like finding the nearest restroom, ordering from a menu, and purchasing souvenirs. There is no better way to have all that information accessible to them in their language than through Professional Chinese Translation Services. According to Boston Magazine, Chinese tourists spent $273 million in Boston last year! To ensure that Chinese tourists continue to come back and continue to move Boston’s economy forward, tourism and travel translation is a critical service in Boston that must be done well. Working with the right translation agency in Boston becomes an important matter for businesses catering to the foreign visitors.
For both universities and tourism needs, document translation services in Boston are expected to remain busy for years to come, working with not only in Simplified Chinese and Vietnamese Language, but with other languages as well to help foreign students and tourist. The need for Boston translation companies to handle multilingual Travel and tourist information, educational Translation and health care content continues to grow.
