    WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN TRANSLATING 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 family name followed by 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).

    We often choose native Korean linguists for the target language in Korean translation services. For example, if you order Vietnamese to Korean translation services, a native Korean linguist will translate your documents. For complex or high-volume documents, we will discuss and choose both native Vietnamese and Korean translators.

    The number of words, level of repetition, types of services required, area of specialization, translators’ metrics, formatting, and other requirements all impact a Korean project’s turnaround time. The Korean translators at GTE Localize can perform an average of 2,500 words every working day. We can allocate more Korean translators to a project if urgent, bringing our daily volume to 10,000 words.
