A proven quality assurance system has been developed through a decade of translation projects. Consistently high-quality translation and localization services at low prices are what distinguishes us from other market players.

Facts about Korean

  • Korean is the official language of South Korea and North Korea, with slight differences in spelling, alphabet, and vocabulary. It is also one of the two official languages in China’s Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture. Additionally, Korean is also used in Korean communities in other countries. There are approximately 77 million native Korean speakers around the world today.
  • Korean was originally written with Chinese characters, called “Hanja.” Now, the Korean writing system has evolved to using mainly the Korean alphabet, called “Hangul.” Hangul letters are designed to be joined together to form a single syllabic unit, or “block.” Unlike Chinese and Japanese, modern Korean is commonly written with spaces between words, similar to the English writing system.
  • There approximately 1 million Korean speakers living in the United States as of 2009, which makes Korean the 8th most spoken foreign language in the US.

Korean Peculiarities

  • In Korean, many terms have various styles of expression. Today, many terms are directly adapted from English vocabulary. For example, the direct translation of “good idea” in Korean would be “굿 아이디어” (pronounced as “gu-i-deer”), which sounds almost the same as “good idea” in English. However, the traditional way to say “good idea” is “좋은 생각” (pronounced as “zo en sang guk”).

  • Context is particularly important when translating into Korean. Words can have very different expressions and meanings depending on the situation, the content, and the types of documents. Our project managers will communicate closely with you so our linguists can determine the most appropriate word usage for your Korean translations.
  • Like many other Asian languages, Korean uses a sophisticated honorific system to indicate the relationship between the speaker and the receiver/audience in its grammar usage. Special nouns and verb endings are used to indicate superiority. Additionally, questionnaires, company websites, and in-house training documents should be translated using a more respectful honorific expression than news articles and patent documents.
