About Hakka

Hakka Chinese is one of the Chinese languages and the seventh most common type of Chinese spoken in China. The language originates with the Hakka people who are believed to have moved to southern China to avoid civil unrest and war in the north. 

Hakka Chinese still has some syllabled from older forms of Chinese, a feature common many southern Chinese languages. Gan Chinese has the most similarities with Hakka out of all the Chinese langagues, but due to Hakka diverged significantly it can not be easily understood by speakers of other forms of Chinese.  

Hakka Geography

Hakka Chines is is largely spoken by isolated and scattered group, this has led to the development of many distinct dialects within Hakka. Almost every region Hakka is spoken is has their own dialect of the language, including the provinces of Guangdong, Guizhou, Guangxi, Jiangxi, Hainan, Fujian, and Hunan.

Hakka is also spoken in Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Taiwan where it is a national language with two local dialects. Taiwan has a sizeable number of Hakka speakers and is the central location for the study of the Hakka language. Taiwan also has Hakka radio stations and Hakka Television.

In the United Kingdom 0.7% of the population is British Chinese. Hakka Chinese is the third most common native language for British Chinese, following Mandarin and Yue Chinese (Cantonese). As a significant minority group in the United Kingdom, Hakka translation and Hakka interpretation is important for connecting with local communities. Here at Translate UK we are well equipped to help by providing a professional, accurate language service.
