Hey guys! I am having my wedding dress made by a Chinese vendor. While she is good at english, she doesnt seem to quite understand my vision. So my question is, could anyone please help me out to translate my description into mandarin (I guess) ? I just want my dress to come out according to my wishes.

Hi there! You might wanna find out exactly what dialect of Chinese she is since there are many and they are all different. Mandarin and cantonese are the two biggest. Are there any translators you can use online?

Though there are many spoken dialects, written Chinese is all the same (except for traditional/simplified characters, but any native Chinese speaker should be able to suss those out easily).

Well we can write verbal Cantonese down (which the younger Hongkongese generation prefers), and Mandarin people won’t understand at all.
