Bringing China Closer

For thousands of years, Chinese culture developed in near isolation from the West. The extent of the difference between the two languages and cultures continues to lead to frequent misunderstandings.

We are a small group of professionals with expertise in languages, ethnographic research, and other fields of social science, working together with one aim: to help you to function effectively in China.


  • We work closely with you to understand your goals
  • We use ethnography and other research to understand your audience
  • Communication

  • We help you to communicate, and to understand
  • We pay close attention to context, accuracy, and tone
  • We provide on-site interpretation & cultural consultation

  • We have undertaken a very wide variety of projects, large and small, in many fields. Please contact us to discuss how we can help, we would be delighted to hear from you.
