Distinctive, Informed Korean Language Translation
There are some details which any English to Korean translation service and their translators should be vigilant about.
- Korean is an agglutinative language, and it's basic sentence structure is subject-object-verb, rather than subject-verb-object like English. Translators must thoroughly understand Korean word order for proper and professional Korean translation.
- Korean language does not conjugate verbs according to the subject like English does, but rather according to the verb tense and according to those holding the conversation. There is one kind of conjugation used for children to parents, another for friends, another for officials and persons of authority, etc.
- Korean dialects range from the standardized dialects of Seoul in North Korea and P'yongan in South Korea, and regional dialects of Gangwon in South Korea, Kangwon in North Korea, and the Jeju dialect of Jeju Island in South Korea, which is a dialect that is not mutually intelligible by most other Korean dialects.
- Korean language translations may be written either using a mixture of Hanja and Hangul, which are Chinese ideograms (Hanja) and the Korean alphabet, (Hangul) or by simply using Hangul alone. This can be compared on a much simpler level to the way Indo-European languages use either Arabic symbols or actual written words to represent numbers. This is directly relevant to the way a Korean language translation is done, and translators must be completely informed and knowledgeable about which method is appropriate for each document.
- However, the North Korean regime has attempted to eliminate all foreign loanwords, as well as older words of Chinese origin. It has become policy in North Korea to systematically remove all Hanja from publications, and purely Korean language and vocabulary is encouraged.
