Native Korean Translation Services

Like Japanese, Korean was influenced by Chinese. A fundamental feature of the Korean language is the verb endings, which denote a level of respect according to the other person’s status in society. Our expertise reflects these nuances. Our professional Korean translators are native speakers of the target languages, with a minimum of 5 years’ experience and academic qualifications in translating Korean. Therefore we are able to handle any document that needs to be localised into or from the Korean language, delivering outstanding results.

WHERE DID KOREAN ORIGINATE FROM?

The history of the language begins with Proto-Korean, which is believed to have been spoken in the 2nd and 3rd century BC. Over time, many words were borrowed from Chinese, and these are still common today; other tongues were also influential on modern Korean, but only Mongolian has left a significant mark.

HOW MANY PEOPLE SPEAK KOREAN?

As a widespread, East Asian language it is spoken as a mother tongue by almost 80 million people, making Korean the largest language isolate in the world. The vast majority of native speakers are from South and North Korea, which is not surprising since it is the national tongue of both.

WHICH COUNTRIES SPEAK KOREAN?

It is the official language in both North and South Korea. Additionally, approximately 2 million people in China, 1 million in the United States, and half a million in Japan also speak Korean as a main language.

ARE THERE MANY KOREANS IN EUROPE?

The EU and the Republic of Korea have strengthened their economic and political ties recently. The two parties recently signed a free trade agreement, and South Korea is the only country in the world with all three agreements covering economics, politics and security currently in effect. Its no wonder then that you will find large Korean communities in many European countries. About 5,300 Koreans, have a German base in the Frankfurt-Rhine Main Area. It is also the home to international headquarters of major Korean corporations such as Kia Motors, Hyundai, Samsung Electronics and LG International.

DO THEY SPEAK THE SAME LANGUAGE IN THE NORTH AND SOUTH?

Although North and South share the same mother tongue, they each have a different standardised form, which accounts for differences in pronunciation, vocabulary, and so on. Having said that, the dialects spoken by Koreans on either side of the border remain mutually intelligible to varying degrees.

WHAT LANGUAGES CAN YOU TRANSLATE KOREAN INTO?

We have a global team of expert linguists and project managers available to quickly and accurately provide translation services into over 200+ languages; from Japanese, English, Spanish and German to even the most highly obscure African dialects.

WHO ARE PROFESSIONAL TRANSLATION SERVICES SUITABLE FOR?

Whether you need a quick translation of a personal document, or a company-wide initiative to standardise international product manuals, our translation teams are composed and focused for your needs. We have been serving private clients as well as global corporations for over 20 years and have built up expertise in the industries of Finance, Automotive, Medical, Pharmaceutical, Electronics and Telecommunications. We offer a free translation quote with no obligation and are happy to share examples of our work to help you choose the right partner for your next.

WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A TRANSLATION SERVICE?

Many companies offer translation services, but not all of them specialise in Korean so the first thing you need to do is choose a company that has vast experience in translating your target languages. Background information such as certifications, testimonials, and a list of references can be helpful too especially when you require sensitive or legal documents translated. Getting a top quality Korean translation service can be hard – until you hire us that is. Don’t just take our word for it though. We have a 95% rating on Trust Pilot and many glowing reviews. Take a look for yourself.

DO YOU OFFER ANY OTHER TRNASLATION SERVICES?

When you have a translation project, often you need additional services such as voice overs, subtitles, and closed captioning. When choosing a translation service we should be your first port of call as we have a world-wide network of linguistic professionals, transcriptionists, editors, project managers and proof-readers at your fingertips. Plus, to ensure your project is done to your absolute satisfaction we can match you to a Korean translator and Korean Interpreter with experience in your field.

I NEED A KOREAN INTERPRETER TOO, CAN YOU HELP?

We can provide the full range of services including a Korean interpreter for anything you may need; such as telephone interpreting, live simultaneous interpreting, consecutive interpreting, as well as providing qualified court interpreters, medical interpreters and conference interpreters to businesses. If you need a Korean interpreter for English, Japanese, German, Spanish or absolutely any other combination, we will match you with a highly qualified, native speaking Korean interpreter who will provide you with only the best quality services.

HOW MUCH DO KOREAN TRANSLATION SERVICES COST?

When you need documents translated a large factor in which service to choose is the cost of translation. We ensure that every project is cost-effective without compromising on the highest standards we have set for ourselves, every project we do is priced per word count and you know what you will be charged from the outset.

HOW DO I GET AN EXACT PRICE FORM MY KOREAN TRANSLATION SERVICE?

Finding out how much your translation project will cost is really easy. Simply fill in the short form above for a free, instant quote. Alternatively you can contact us by phone or email, and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

HOW QUICKLY CAN YOU PROVIDE KOREAN TRANSLATION SERVICES?

The speed of your translation project depends on the complexity of the task, a single page we can process quickly but if you require an entire website translated this will take a little longer. What we can promise is that we will complete your translation needs at as fast turnaround times as we can possibly do while ensuring our highest standards for accuracy.

WILL I GET A DEDICATED PROJECT MANAGER WITH MY KOREAN TRANSLATION SERVICES?

Yes, we do. When you need a Korean language service that can provide high-quality translations at a reasonable price and quick service, you can turn to Absolute Translations. Our project managers are matched to you based on their subject knowledge of your businesses field, and our translators can provide perfect translations at a fast turnaround time.

DO YOU OFFER SAME DAY TRANSLATION SERVICES?

When you choose our translation services you know that you will always get prompt responses in addition to high-quality and accurate translations. For urgent matters you can choose our premium, quick service which can see your project completed in as little as 24 hours.

HOW TO ENSURE ACCURATE TRANSLATION SERVICES?

When you need your Korean documents accurately translated it’s important to use a translation agency that is both an ISO-certified company and a member of ATA. That way, you can be sure that your documents are translated by professionals working within the quality assurance systems of an ISO-certified company.

ARE THERE ANY FREE TRANSALATION SERVICES?

There is indeed some free and readily available translation software online, think Google Translate. If you are on a tight budget and require fast turnaround times it can be tempting to use translation services that utilise web-based programmes for text translation. After all, many of these online translation services are free and easy to use right? The reality is that translation software is not a substitute for the expertise and experience of a qualified translator.

WHY ARE HUMAN TRANSLATORS BETTER THAN MACHINE TRANSALTION SERVICES?

Software programmes are not able to fully process Korean script and they do not have the accuracy of a real human who understands the cultural context and words used by real people. That is why we would always recommend you use a professional Korean translator over a computer-based programme, especially for your contractual business documents.

ARE YOUR TRANSLATION SERVICES PROVIDED BY NATIVE SPEAKERS?

Yes, we pride ourselves on being an industry-leading translation service and that is why all of our linguistic experts are native, mother tongue speakers with over 5 years experience. We believe it is important that the translator working on your projects should also be experienced in your subject matter field and have the cultural understanding at hand to ensure the best quality translation possible.

HOW DO YOU VET YOUR TRANSLATORS?

In 2018, we invested over £200,000 on a proprietary software that helps us filter the best globally talented translators and offer the highest customer service levels. All our translators are native speakers and we ensure that they have a minimum of five years of experience as language experts. We have been offering Korean translation services for over 20 years from our base in the UK and have an amazing global team working for us.

HOW CAN BUSINESSES BENEFIT FROM PROFESSIONAL KOREAN TRANSLATIONS?

With its widely spoken language and huge export market, the lure of Korea is steadily expanding across the globe. In fact, the South is now the seventh-largest exporter in the world, quickly catching up to the likes of Hong Kong, the UK and Germany. If you have Korean employees, investors, suppliers or customers your company could highly benefit from reliable translation services of your business documents and communications. From translating your company website and legal documentation, to web-based advertisements and other marketing collateral, we provide quality translation services you can trust.

WHAT DOCUMENT TRANSLATION SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE FOR COMPANIES?

When you are trading with the Korean market you need to find Korean translation services that have the technical expertise to offer accurate and professional translations; from technical documents and marketing materials to business documents and legal documents including patents, IP documents, incorporation documents, court transcripts, license agreements and more.

WHAT ARE CERTIFIED TRANSLATION SERVICES?

When you wish to use an official document in another country you will most likely be asked to provide a certified translation. A certified translation is one that has been approved by a translation service that certifies that the translation of the documents has been done correctly. We offer the full range of translation services and are able to offer certified translation of any document you require, in addition to legalisation and apostles services.

DO YOU OFFER CERTIFIED TRANSLATION SERVICES FOR COMPANIES?

We will help you add value to your company by providing translations services to rewrite e-commerce websites, blogs, market collateral and internal documents to help you break into international markets and make your global company a success.

IS LOCALISATION OF CONTENT IMPORTANT?

The localisation process involves adapting a product or service to a specific locale so that it is accessible to that specific market. This may include translating the content of a website into other languages, changing units from metric to imperial, taking into account currency variations and so much more, all so that it can be more easily understood by users in that region. Therefore localisation is hugely important for reaching and succeeding in international markets.
