Korean Translation

There are 66.3 million Korean speakers living in 33 countries, making Korean the seventeenth most spoken language in the world. Although the majority of Korean speakers live in Korea, there are sizeable populations in Japan, China, and The United States. The 2000 Census recorded 900,000 Korean speakers residing in the U.S., making Korean the eighth most commonly spoken foreign language in the United States. As a result, English to Koreantranslation services are steadily increasing in demand, and YBD is prepared to handle even the most complicated Korean translation requests.

It is believed that Korean is part of the Altaic language family, which includes Mongolic and Turkic languages. This has been disputed as there are only a few similarities in terms of grammar; however, Korean also resembles Chinese and Japanese as a result of cultural contact between the countries. The Korean language is comprised of two distinct parts: spoken and written. The written Korean language, known as Hangul, has an alphabet of 24 letters, and is very different from other Asian languages, especially in grammar. Consequently, word-for-word English to Korean translation can become unintelligible, and requires highly educated translators to ensure accuracy. The spoken Korean language uses native Korean words, and borrows others from the Chinese language. There are further differences in vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation between the language of North and South Korea. Depending on the targeted market, a Korean translator must be native to the area of the target audience to ensure a proper localization. Our translators of Korean translate only into their native languages.

It ranks fourth as the most requested language for translators in the United States.
