Founded in 1979 as the technical consulting service department of the former Chongqing Retired Engineers’ Association, Zhihong Technical Consultancy and Translation Center is affiliated to Chongqing Engineers’ Association (CEA) under which it operates on a registered fund of RMB300,000 as a technical and economic entity. Relying on its strong technical expertise, Zhihong has long been engaged in providing multilingual interpretation and translation service and technical consulting service for the society.
Benefiting from CEA ’s vast human resources, Zhihong boasts a team of senior, middle-aged and young translators who specialize in various fields and have an excellent command of foreign languages. Many of them hold senior academic or professional titles and constitute the mainstay of the team. This team includes quite a number of key experts from the defense industry, of whom the senior translators have either led or participated in the translation of full sets of technical documents (including proofreading of translated texts thereof) for all major projects of technology transfer to other countries and machinery import from abroad. They have also worked as interpreters for leaders of the central government or ministries during their visits abroad and for foreign guests visiting China. Some of them have been stationed abroad for months or even years to help implement engineering or trading projects overseas. Not only is this team skilled in translating technology-related literature but also capable of translating documents in other fields. All these translators’ excellent personal qualities and good command of both native and foreign languages combined with a broad scope of multi-field knowledge constitute the fundamental assurance for quality translation.
Over the years, Zhihong has fully displayed its outstanding capability by its practical success in providing consulting and translation services for its customers in such fields as defense industry, car and motorcycle manufacturing, iron- and steel-making, transportation, environment protection, energy generation, landscaping, housing, road and bridge construction, public security, justice and so on. Zhihong has earned for itself a leading position among its domestic counterparts in terms of work quality and has also received wide approval from its overseas customers.
In more than 40 years, Zhihong, applying itself to the task of “serving all CEA members and the whole society, helping promote national reform and opening-up and facilitating international exchanges”, has translated numerous volumes of Chinese- and foreign-language literature in various fields and categories for more than 1,000 users including government agencies, social organizations, colleges and universities, research institutes, institutions and business enterprises and individuals from all walks of life.
Meanwhile, Zhihong has so far provided over 3,000 medium and small businesses with consulting services regarding technology and feasibility appraisal and helped handle for insurance companies over 1,000 cases of financial risk assessment, accident precaution and prevention and property claim evaluation.
For Zhihong, acting in good faith is a conviction to stay unbeatable in the market, providing its customers with quality service an unshakable principle and being considerate to its customers a characteristic workstyle. Having “rather be betrayed by everyone than betray anyone” as its motto, Zhihong is always ready to make friends with everyone in the world and provide them with services of excellent quality and high efficiency.
