Spoken by more than 72 million people, Korean is a language that can often be heard in business, academic and scientific circles. Even though it is a skill that can come in handy,
learning to communicate in the Korean language, whether in verbal or written form, is a difficult challenge.
Why should you bother with learning the language if the only thing you need is to translate a couple of paragraphs from this complicated foreign language to your native tongue? Google Translator is never as reliable as it may seem, as it would hardly be able to make a shift from the English sentence structure to the Korean one.
That is where Word Works’ team of native speakers and expert linguists comes to the rescue. We rely on our 25-year long experience and comprehensive knowledge of Korean to provide the most accurate Korean translation services on the market. Korean to English or vice-versa, it doesn’t matter.
To an unattuned ear, Korean sounds similar to Chinese or Japanese. Even though these languages bear a certain resemblance to each other
(Korean borrowed many words from Chinese), each of them has its own distinctive characteristics that can be found in spoken and written variants.
For starters, the way Koreans spell and pronounce their words is very complicated. The Korean language is neither phonetic nor phonemic, but morphophonemic, which means that the pronunciation of certain words depends on their relationships with other elements within a syntagm.
And that, of course, is not all:
Korean is specific for its use of separators and digraphs as well, which can make transcribing and translating this language a linguistic nightmare. There’s a certain philosophy behind every vowel and consonant too, and the same can be said about Korean syntax.
Be it as it may, Korean is spoken by over 72 million people. It is the official language of both Republic of Korea (South Korea) and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea), where vocabulary, alphabetization, and spelling somewhat differ. In the U.S. alone, 1 million people speak Korean language.
Even though we specialize in many foreign languages here at Word Works, Korean has a special place in our hearts. We’ve been providing Korean translation
