    Factors To Consider When Localizing Your Content Into Korean

    When localizing into the Korean market, you should pay attention to the below useful tips for a successful Korean localization project:

    • Naver is the preferred search engine in Korea.
    • Texts in Korean are usually 15-20% shorter than in English.
    • Colors have clear meanings in Korea. For example, white signifies purity and temperance, black is associated with negative meanings such as night, death, darkness, etc., and yellow is a symbol of wealth, holiness, and fertility.
    • Red, purple, and black have become representative of Korean luxury and quality. Businesses use these colors in their marketing materials as they are supposed to boost sales and profits.
    • Honorifics are indispensable to the Korean language. Consider carefully the use of seven levels of speech formality when communicating with your audiences.
    • Many borrowed terms from English in fashion, IT, sports, medicine, and engineering are widely used by Korean people without the need to translate them.
    • Korean people use the metric system of measurement. They sometimes use the traditional Korean unit – pyeong (평, 坪) (equivalent to about 3.31 square meters or 35.58 square feet.)
    • You should use Korean won (₩) for products and services instead of KRW, $, or £. Besides, try to make the price look uncluttered by avoiding unnecessary decimal points. For example, use ₩1000 instead of ₩1000.00.
    • The date format is year-month-day.
    • Both 24-hour and 12-hour clock notations are widely used. The 24-hour notation is more commonly used in texts while the 12-hour notation is predominantly used in informal daily life.
    • The full name format is a family name followed by a given name.
    • Addresses are written starting with the specific information (name, followed by house number and street) and moving on to more general information (town, city, and province).
    • The Korean language is the official language of people in South and North Korea. It is spoken by 77 million people worldwide.
    • There are two standard varieties of Korean: the Seoul dialect in South Korea and the Phyong’yang dialect in North Korea.
    • The Korean language has numerous small local dialects. The South Korean regional dialects are Chungchong, Cholla, Kyonsang, and Cheju Island. The North Korean regional dialects are Hwanghae, Hamkyong, and Pyongan.
    • The Korean writing system is called Hangul and consists of 14 consonants and 10 vowels. The consonants are formed with angled or curved lines while the vowels are created from horizontal or vertical straight lines.
    • Most of the Korean vocabulary is made up of native Korean words. However, a great amount of the vocabulary has either been borrowed from written Chinese or coined in Korea or Japan using Chinese characters.
