Why your business needs a Korean Translation service

Spoken by over 80 million people worldwide, the Korean language is widely held as the most difficult language for English speakers to learn owing to its differing forms and Hangul script. Korean borrows most of its technical terms from classical Chinese and about 10% of its basic nouns. South Korea is considered the world's greatest economic success story with a recorded five consecutive decades of economic growth in excess of 5%. There is a significant difference in English and Korean business etiquette; as a result many business visitors find the Korean approach to business alien. However, in order to truly capitalise on business opportunities with Korean contacts you will need to understand how your foreign colleagues think and act. It is important to understand certain social norms and etiquette when conducting business in Korea. For example, using both hands to receive or give a business card. Customs such as these are known to our interpreters and they’ll help you negotiate these differences with ease.

At Global Voices we can translate both seamlessly. In fact we can translate Korean to and from 140 other languages worldwide. Our project managers will ensure you’re working with the best native speakers to get a flawless translation.


Are there many dialects of Korean?

Yes. Korean is broken down into a variety of regional dialects. Hamgyong dialect (Northeastern dialect), North Western dialect, Pyongan, Hwanghae, Yukchin, Central dialects and Jeju language which is sometimes considered a separate Koreanic language.

Will I require a text translator for Korean?

Korean is written in the Hangul script. The alphabet has 19 consonants and 21 vowel letters. Instead of being written sequentially like the letters of the Latin alphabet, Hangul letters are grouped into blocks, each transcribing to a syllable. Hangul and the English alphabet are greatly opposing and a Korean translator is essential.

Where is Korean spoken?

It is the official language of the Republic of Korea and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Alongside North and South Korea, Korean is spoken in China, Japan, the USA and Central Asia.
