Every Korean translator we work with is carefully screened by our team at ALTA. The result is professional quality document translation delivered on time and on budget for a wide array of markets.

  • Korean Translation for Business: We offer translations services for websites, business documents, and business cards. Clients including several Fortune 500 companies have trusted ALTA for more than 30 years.
  • Korean Translation for Sales and Marketing: Understanding your target audience is key for any successful marketing effort. Unlike translation companies that simply translate text, we strive to do more. ALTA offers transcreation services to adapt the text to your target market. This service is a combination of translation and in-language content creation.
  • Korean Translation for Human Resources: Cultural awareness is a must when translating human resources content. We translate documents including employee manuals, handbooks, Codes of Conduct, policies, training material, and more.
  • Korean Legal Translation: Legal documents are only translated by linguists with years of experience drafting high-quality Korean legal translations. We can also provide a certified, notarized copy of your Korean document for legal purposes. This is available at no extra cost.
  • Korean Technical Translation: Language translation demands more than simply knowing two languages. Technical manuals, for example, contain complex terms that the average native speaker may not know. For this reason, we pair your project to a Korean translator who has real-world experience in that field.

About the Korean Language

Korean is the official language of North and South Korea, with more than 77 million native speakers world-wide. It has been hailed as “one of the best writing systems in the world.”

The majority of native Korean speakers live in North or South Korea. There are also roughly 2 million native speakers in China and 1 million speakers in the United States. Although there are a variety of Korean dialects, most are considered mutually intelligible. This means you will not need to localize your Korean translations for multiple geographic locations.

Why Choose ALTA for Your Korean Translation?

If your documents contain a lot of repetitive text, you can save significantly with these translation memory tools. These tools scan your text for repetition and provide a discount based on that repetition.
  • A Wide Range of File Formats. We use high-quality translation tools to translate various files and formats. These files include: Microsoft Office documents, websites, InDesign files, and more.

How long will the translation take?

As a rule of thumb, we estimate one translator can complete between 1,500 – 2,000 words per business day. We prefer to keep documents with one primary translator if possible. Sometimes, though, deadlines make this unworkable. In these cases, we can assemble a team of Korean translators to expedite the process.

Do You Need an Interpreter or a Translator?

The words “translator” and “interpreter” are often confused or mixed up. In the language world, each performs different functions. A Korean interpreter will deal with the spoken word, while a Korean translator deals with the written word. If you require help for an event, phone call, or other situation, you need an interpreter. If you have a document you need rendered in another language, you need a translator. Please see our interpretation page for more information.
