On Aug. 3, a new e-mail application launched which will allow users to write an e-mail message in English and then forward it with Chinese and English text side-by-side. This solves the language barrier with China and sets a new standard in e-mail communication.
The Chinglish Mail tool links China to the rest of the world in a time when the economic crisis forces entrepreneurs to explore new markets and trade leads. This bilingual e-mail solution is ideal for initiating contact or for language learning purposes.
It opens up a potential market of more than 40 million Chinese small and medium enterprises, many of which are individuals with limited English language skills.
It works like this: After registering, send a message to ChinglishMail.com from a preferred private or business e-mail address. The e-mail is returned within seconds, professionally formatted, with the Chinese and English text side-by-side for easy reading. Next, forward the e-mail to the contacts.
Chinglish Mail uses state of the art machine translation software. It links users to a community of Chinese–English speaking language professionals, offering a useful tool for those who need additional translation or proofreading help, or who want to improve their Chinese or English language skills. ♦
