Korean translation tips
Translation text contraction
When you translate from English to Korean, text typically reduces in volume by up to 15%. This may not seem like a big issue, but from a design perspective, text contraction can make a huge difference to the layout and appearance of a website or brochure.
Informal vs. formal speech
There is a strong sense of respect and hierarchy in Korean culture. As such, Korean has six formal speech forms and one informal speech form, each showing varying levels of respect in the language. The impact of your translations can differ greatly depending on the relationship of the speaker to the audience that he or she is addressing. Therefore, it’s absolutely necessary to provide some level of context to your translators.
