Foreign Professionals Invited to Check Bilingual Sign Services
The city foreign affairs office along with the city translators association have invited foreign professionals to visit around 15 public places ranging from police service centers to parks to see and check bilingual signs.
Several foreign visitors are having a little trouble on roadways when traveling around the city with most of them relying on memorizing the routes taken or using a GPS. Some visitors suggested that the city should put more English language road sign or else visitors and expats will continue to use GPS or their memory in remembering road numbers and routes when they travel. The tour was part of the government’s plan in trying to turn the city into a more international metropolis.
The Peking University Shenzhen Hospital along with some other local hospitals have made efforts in improving their local English language services to prove English language services to more than 200 expats a month. The Peking University Shenzhen Hospital has employees that studied overseas to handle foreign patients and provide them with bilingual health reports. And the hospital is planning to provide a Japanese and Korean language services soon.
