My personal perspective
Creating a program about Taiwan and Taiwanese people, interviews and other authentic information is very valuable however without localizing and accurate translation, the message you wish to share with your audience cant be clear or interesting enough. It is thus crucial to have a professional translator with deep understanding of the culture and the nuances of the Chinese language.
