English to Korean Translation

Korean and English are two vastly different languages. These discrepancies are due to the separate roots of both languages; Korean belongs to the Altaic linguistic family, whereas English is a West Germanic language. Therefore, grammar rules and syntax seem complex to non-natives. The Korean word order is Subject–Object–Verb, for example. There are also no noun cases, no articles, no plural noun forms, and high levels of agglutination.

Another challenge for English to Korean translators is the correct usage of honorifics. The honorific system is hugely important in showing respect and indicating social relationships in North and South Korea. There are six degrees of addressee honorification, and verbs, nouns, pronouns, and particles vary depending on your audience. There are then seven Korean speech levels representing the same honorific system yet distinct from honorific titles.
High-quality Korean to English translation and vice versa rely on fully understanding this complex system. Moreover, Korean translators must choose the correct regional dialect. The primary Korean dialects are mutually intelligible but show phonology, morphology, and vocabulary variations that are essential to perfect if you want to connect with your audience properly. Due to these challenges, English to Korean translation projects are best left to professionals. Trust our Korean translation services for the best results.

Korean Translation Tips & Insights

Our Korean translators know what it takes to provide professional Korean translation services. Below are two helpful tips you can use for your next translation project. They will help you avoid mistakes, produce accurate content, and successfully enter your target market.

Be Aware of Text Contraction

Korean is much more concise than English, with no gender distinctions, grammatical numbers, or definite or indefinite articles. When translating English to Korean, text contracts by around 15%. The converse is true for a Korean to English translation – text expands by this amount. This percentage might seem small, but it can significantly impact design elements. Always revisit formatting after translating the text to ensure your material has a professional finish.

Clearly Define Your Audience

Social hierarchy is extremely strong in Korean culture, affecting all aspects of social interactions. Therefore, respecting this social structure in your translation to Korean is vital. You must clearly define your target audience so your translator can choose the most appropriate honorifics for your material. If you select the incorrect formality, your material will appear rude, inappropriate, and ineffective. High-quality Korean translation services help ensure this doesn’t happen.
