Korean Language
Korean, the national language of South and North Korea, is one of the world’s oldest living languages. It is very similar to Japanese in terms of grammar, and over 70% of its vocabulary is “borrowed” from Chinese. Korean language has a very sophisticated honorific system, which can be challenging for translators and foreigners to master.
The Korean Media Scene
Korean media has been on the international scene for quite some time and it is causing quite a hype these days with the evergrowing popularity of Korean dramas, K-pop culture, and famous Korean directors. We definitely can’t skip mentioning the Oscar-winning movie “Parasite” which wouldn’t be that successful if the movie was only in Korean.

The popularity of Korean media, however, brings up the necessity of skillful subtitle translations and other media services that the international media scene wasn’t ready to tackle. A good example here is poorly done subtitles which don’t transmit the culture behind the language properly. That leads to a completely different message sent to the audience, which may sometimes even sound ridiculous.

The need for adequate professional media translations performed by people with actual experience in Asian languages along with linguists with relevant experience has never been more real.

Facts that affect Korean to English and to other languages translations:
The complexity of Korean Translation
1. The written language > Translation Service
2. The spoken language > Media Service
Korean spoken language is a challenge to many non-Korean speakers due to the honorifics and the different dialects.
