About Company Names
Registered/incorporated companies in mainland China are not required to register corporate names in English. Often, the English name of a Chinese company is either a phonetic or semi-literal translation of its Chinese name. Chinese companies’ official registrations have been verified in their original registered form, which is Chinese.
