Korean Translation and Interpreting

The best Korean interpreter understands the challenges associated with these kinds of transitions and bridges the cultural gaps that could otherwise be problematic. Korean translation comes in many forms. There are Korean simultaneous interpreters, Korean consecutive interpreters, Korean conference interpreters, and Korean telephone interpreters, – each designed to obtain specific outcomes.
According to the International Association of Conference Interpreters, a Korean conference interpreter is a professional language and communication expert who, at multilingual meetings, conveys the meaning of a speaker’s message orally and in another language to listeners who would not otherwise understand. Conference interpreters work in the heat of debate, thinking as they speak.

Korean translation of hip hop lyrics

When the Far East Movement, a hip-hop group based in Koreatown, Los Angeles, sang the chorus of that hit song “Like a G6” listeners bounced along to the kinetic beat of the track and “put their hands up” dancing and grooving. Like so many urban tracks, “Like a G6” was chock-full of slang-fueled sayings. The lyrics to the song reveal a kind of carefree, dance-party culture not typical of the traditional idea associated with the more conservative Korean community. How would one translate “slizzard” from English to Korean? The Korean translator can make or break a situation.

Korean interpreting for debates

Choi Hyun-jin, is a Korean interpreter who translated the recent Hilary wpinton versus Donald Trump debate to Korean listeners overseas. She likens her Korean interpreting skills to a beacon of light.
“Interpreting is not a job that stands out and shines. The work is more like a glow. I’m not the heroine, but more like a light that shines, or an aura behind heroes that always exists to do the job of brightening them,” says Choi Hyun-jin.
The skills used in political debate interpreting are often used in other areas of political communication. According to the New York Times, former President Barack Obama alerted President Donald Trump that North Korea is a very important, if not one of the most urgent problems he would face as Commander-in-chief. Korean telephone interpreters and conference interpreters can assist with effective communication.

Korean interpreting for global tech

Korean interpreters and translators can greatly assist with meetings, phone calls, and conferences for global tech. The “Choi-Gate” corruption scandal involved global technology company Samsung, and its Vice Chairman, Jay Y. Lee. Additionally, the recall of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphone yielded litigation. Litigation oftentimes involves depositions, interviewing, and other communication skills that require Korean consecutive interpreting. In Korean consecutive interpreting, the interpreter waits for the speaker to finish before interpreting into the target language. As multinational corporations like Samsung depend on the buying power of citizens on a global and international scale, Korean consecutive interpreting services are a good fit to resolve problems that global tech companies face today.

Korean simultaneous interpreting is used for practical situations such as ordering food and entertaining Korean guests. Some of the best Korean restaurants in America enrich and encourage conversation between both languages and assist in linking cultural exchanges through Asian cuisine.
Whether dining international dignitaries, communicating in litigation, or conveying the messages of political debates overseas, modern global tech makes it easier today than ever before to expand Korean translation services that ultimately help resolve the problems of the international community. Bridging the gap between cultures, these translation services help transcend communication obstawpes and achieve solutions.
