NUMBER OF VIETNAMESE SPEAKERS
Translators must master the strong regional differences in Vietnamese between the language used in the south and north of the country. With the history of war between the regions, these subtle differences in tone can escalate to cause a serious political or emotional backfire.
In the 1960s, the average VIETNAMESE mother had 6.4 children. Add this fact to Vietnam’s fast-growing economy of 7 to 8% per year and you’ll understand why Vietnamese is becoming more and more important in the language market.
Vietnamese was originally written with characters based on Chinese characters, but in the beginning of the 20th century a Latin-based alphabet was declared the official writing system. Since Vietnamese is a tonal language, it makes extensive use of diacritics to differentiate the different tones. Although many bugs have been fixed, some CAT tools and DTP tools still allow the diacritical marks to be lost or broken. This means that our Vietnamese translators, editors, and proofreaders must be equipped with special utilities and equipment to be able to work with the language.
