Why is it important to hire professionals for English to Korean Language Translation?
Korean is a complex language that requires talented linguists and translators to achieve the highest quality and accuracy. There are some details that translators should be vigilant about.
- Unlike English, Korean is an agglutinative language that uses a subject/object/verb structure. Whereas English sentence structure follows subject/verb/object. So, it is of great importance that translators understand the Korean language structure to accurately translate.
- Korean language translations can be written combining Hanja and Hangul. Hangul is Chinese ideograms and Hanja is the word used for the Korean alphabet. In some cases, you can just use Hangul without Hanja. This is directly relevant to the translation as the translator must possess the knowledge to determine which method is the best for different content.
- Like any language, Korean dialects range from region to region. There are many variations in South Korea and North Korea. For example, the Jeju dialect of Jeju Island in South Korea would be different from the dialect of the South Korean capital, Seoul. In fact, they are so different, Jeju dialect is not mutually intelligible to most other dialects.
- With the Korean language, you do not conjugate verbs according to the subject. Instead, you conjugate according to the verb tense and those engaged in the conversation. There are many different conjugations depending on whom you are speaking to. For example, you use a different one for friends than officials.
- Although there are many differences between dialects, there is also a key difference with the Korean spoken in the North. The North Korean regime eliminated all foreign loanwords and words derived from Chinese, to keep the language as purely Korean as possible.
