What is language translation services?

Language translation services are effective in getting your message conveyed clearly in your target language. Language translation means communicating the meaning of a source-language text derived from an equivalent target-language text. The accuracy and use of precise words is a very important part of language translation services.

History of language translation

Historically speaking, the first significant translation in the Western world was of the Hebrew Bible in the third century. In a relatively more modern era, the printing press had a deep impact on literacy: texts could now be translated and published in the local language of a region, which meant that more people got the chance to learn to read, especially womenfolk. The academic discipline of translation studies evolved in the 1950s, with institutes beginning to pop up where people could learn translation and discuss the best theories to do so. Nowadays, aided by computers, translators work from all over the world. In 2015, the translation industry was worth $37 billion, and it’s only growing. 

How language translation is helpful for individuals and businesses?        

The three most spoken languages in the world are Mandarin Chinese, English and Spanish. As globalization has become pervasive in all spheres of daily life, from business and commerce to education and medicine, being able to communicate with people that speak different languages is an important part of today’s daily global culture. As many people seek professional translation services in Mandarin, especially in the business world, because of China’s growing economy, Spanish has become the second most spoken language in the US and is rising quickly every day, and so is needed for business translation services in Spanish.

Why language translation services are needed?

To be able to cross language barriers and truly connect with people with a different native tongue, translations have become a very important and popular means to foster relationships with people of different backgrounds. From teachers and lawyers to business people and doctors, document translation services, among others, continue to help bridge the language gap, forging relationships and creating a deeper sense of community amongst the global population.
