The benefits of a professional Hindi translator or interpreter
Hindi is the official language of India. Spoken as a first language by nearly 425 million people, and as a second language by 120 million people, it is the third most spoken language in the world.
In India Hindi is the medium of instruction at elementary-school level. As a result, most members of the urban middle class speak Hindi. Moreover, Hindi is seen as a sign of upward social mobility. Regional dialects in contrast are stigmatised as an indicator of inadequate education.
In addition to the complexities of the language, there is also a strong cultural etiquette in Indian business that is essential for getting off on the right foot with your potential business associates.
For example, meeting etiquette requires a handshake much the same as business in the UK. However, to show an understanding of the Indian culture it is customary to also use “namaste” as a greeting in Indian business.
Indians are very family oriented and it is common for meetings to begin with questions about your family. This is considered polite and you should not press for the conversation to move on too quickly.
Sound intimidating? Our expert Hindi translators and interpreters will help you navigate the language and the culture without incident.

Do I need a Hindi translator for written text?
Hindi is written in the Devanagari script
, also used for writing Sanskrit, Marathi and Nepali. It is written from left to right and has a strong preference for symmetrical rounded shapes with squared outlines. It is recognizable by a horizontal line that runs along the top of full letters. Owing to the vast differences between the UK alphabet and the Devanagari script a Hindi text translator is crucial.
