Writing in Korean is a true pleasure – simple and logical
The Korean writing system is one of the first and most scientifically ‘invented’ phonetic systems. Created in the fifteenth century by a team of royal linguists, the system can make almost any sound with just 24 alphabetic characters. Thus, in contrast to other Asian languages such as Japanese or Chinese, many English words used in Korean almost retain their original pronunciations.
Translation, however still has its specifics
Each language has specific translation issues that need to be determined before any text can be translated. In Korean translations, one of the first issues clients need to understand is the Korean language’s very sophisticated honorific system.
This system expresses itself in a number of levels of forms of address as well as pronouns and even verb forms. Gauging the intent of the text and the position of the recipient is crucial to the success of the translation, though this is often hidden or unknown in the European source languages.
