Crayfish provided an excellent service in helping provide Polyvision with objective, third party data on the Chinese e-commerce sector. This has been paramount in allowing us to make sound, strategic business decisions. We would highly recommend Jane and her team and would employ their services again.
After some research and comparison, I decided to entrust STEER’s China activities to Crayfish. In just three months, we have made so much progress, including an unexpectedly fulfilling trip to China. We now have a clear, effective China strategy and I’m already planning my next trip to China!
Crayfish team provided support from the outset, answering our queries, and providing an excellent workspace to liaise with the development team. Setting up a website in China was unknown territory for us and they provided all the necessary support, information, and advice throughout. Their standardised services allowed us to manage our budget effectively. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Crayfish for anyone looking to develop business in the Far East.
The service I have received from Crayfish has been excellent, from the very first meeting the process has been easy and trouble free. The level of detail in the desk research report far exceeded my expectations, I am very satisfied and would use them for all future requirements. Thank you to Crayfish and its experts for all your efforts and assistance!
Crayfish.io have been invaluable in their management of our China projects. Their team had gone above and beyond for CML and they are always available with a solution. There have been so many moving parts during the process and there is no way we could have done it without Crayfish.io. I would happily recommend them to anyone looking to establish a presence in China.
To some SMEs, developing business in China is an entrepreneur’s dream. But Crayfish.io made it very possible by demystifying the stories around doing business with the Chinese and creating strategies for cultural understanding and entry into one of the largest markets in the world. Their one-to-one customised service gave us the best the team had to offer. We can’t recommend them enough and are confident to expand in China because we know we have Crayfish.io as our partners.
Recruiting talent in China is far from straightforward for an SME like us. Without Crayfish, we wouldn’t have been able to complete this hiring so smoothly and quickly from our UK based HR team. We are fortunate that we have got a really good local employee team and we put that largely down to the support and advice over the years we received from Crayfish.io and especially Ting Zhang.
Very happy with the end delivery, and quick turn around which was just what I needed. Thank you!
Eric helped my company set up a WeChat service account. He provided us with a list of documents we needed to prepare for the application, did all the liaison work with WeChat's operator and completed the project quickly. I recommend his service to anyone who wishes to open a WeChat account from overseas.
We used Crayfish for primary market research and background checking. We found that the services were well informed and executed by a competent team introduced by Crayfish. The results were extremely illuminating. We will use crayfish again.

I would like to say ‘thank you’ to Crayfish.io and give some feedback on the translation work you did for us recently. I reviewed and published the article on our firm’s official Wechat account, and I received some feedback from readers such as lawyers and business owners, they find the article is very easy to understand but at the meantime is very professional. In addition, the translation was done within 2 days. Despite we’ve never met before, I feel the communication was easy and smooth.
China is the most promising market of video games, the Chinese market is also complex and strictly regulated. To assess potentials and challenges, we decided to carry out market validation of our games before prioritizing action points. The validation reports prepared by Crayfish and its vetted experts provided us with an overview of the game market, industry regulations, and trends of games in similar categories.
We were very pleased this last month to complete our first large China business licensing deal.

Many thanks for the brilliant transcreation of our brand name!
This is the second time Crayfish and its specialist network helped us with recruitment and HR issues in China. Crayfish provided us with advice and support on the basis of Chinese labour law and regulations, enabling us to review and change employment contract terms. With PM team liaising with us in the UK and a China-based expert, the bilingual service ensured effective communication between us and the colleague overseas. In the background of the pandemic, Crayfish offered a flexible but efficient solution to manage our workforce in China.
I am very happy with Crayfish service. We’ve had a number of responses which have exceeded my expectations. Very cost effective. Thank you.
This was an urgent project with a very tight deadline and was delivered early with high attention to detail.
The interpreters provided an excellent service in assisting our delegate to understand the technology transfer environment in the UK, which is very different to China. Many new connections were made, which are vital for developing, promoting and connecting knowledge exchange in this sector.
Crayfish provided translation service for my meetings with Chinese and for some of my documents. On one occasion, within a very short notice, they sourced three quality freelancing translators for me to choose, and the final product was delivered to my satisfaction within budget and agreed timeframe. I would highly recommend Crayfish to anyone who needs English and Chinese translation services.
We have found Crayfish.io to be really useful in supporting our business development efforts in China. The platform is easy to use and we had several bids for the translation of our highly technical product sheets. We selected an experienced freelancer with a degree in electronics and he completed the translations efficiently and accurately. We are very pleased with the quality of the work and the Crayfish customer service team are always friendly and responsive.
