When dealing with overseas companies who speak in a foreign language it adds an extra layer of complication to the whole business transaction. This can lead to mis-understanding between the parties which in turn can lead to disputes and very expensive mistakes. When trading with China contracts will usually be written in Chinese with an English translation provided. It is important to note that in the event of a dispute the courts in China will rely on the Chinese version of the contract and in the event of a discrepancy between the English and Chinese version the Chinese version will prevail. It is important therefore for you to check all contracts independently before signing. You should not rely on the English version supplied by the Chinese company.
