Actually you don't need to translate the address if you want to make sure your mail is delivered correctly. All you have to do is print out the address in Chinese and add "P. R. China" so your local post office knows where it should go. Once it's in the Chinese postal system, all processing is done in Chinese. Having a Chinese address minimizes the chance that it goes wrong.


There is one thing missing though, the postal code (I've looked it up for you, it's 430032).


To: P. R. China

Some post offices insist on a transcription though.


[Name of recipient]

Baofeng jie, Libei 2 cun no. 49, building 7, no. 4

Qiaokou district

Wuhan City

Hubei Province 430032

PR China


But make sure the Chinese address is also on the package, since the person delivering it will have better Chinese than English. Add the recipient's phone number too, if you have it. That can help in the delivery.
