About our name



Our name - Sinophone ['saɪnəfəʊn] – means ‘one who masters the Chinese language; an expert in communicating the world to China, and China to the world’. We regularly interpret for meetings that make front page news.

Our objective is to dramatically improve communication at meetings with China that matter.


A new concept in professional interpretation

Sinophone is not a translation agency. As China's first professional interpretation firm, Sinophone is owned and managed by senior professional interpreters, members of the International Association of Conference Interpreters (AIIC).

We are experts in the field of high-level professional interpreting, and are fully accredited as simultaneous interpreters with the United Nations, IMF, US State Department, and major international organizations.

If you are planning a high-level meeting, event or mission in China, Sinophone is here to help.
