Professional On-Site and Remote Korean Interpreters
Korean interpretation services are your ticket to seamless communication in Korea.
Korean and English are nothing alike. Korean is an extremely difficult language for
native English speakers to learn, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Koreans equally struggle to acquire English proficiency. Thus, many Koreans don’t speak English, necessitating the use of professional Korean interpretation services for smooth communication.
Whether you’re attending a business conference in Seoul or interviewing Korean speakers in Busan, accurate communication is key to success, but the language barrier between English and Korean makes that difficult. That’s where TranslationServices.com comes in. We have a professional Korean interpretation team that can handle all kinds of interpretation, easily accommodating your needs, regardless of the content. With both on-site and remote interpretation services available, as well as a choice of simultaneous or consecutive interpretation, you’ll never have to worry about communication with Korean speakers again.

Let’s dive into the Korean language.
Korean is the native language of the Korean peninsula, spoken in South Korea and North Korea as well as the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture and Changbai Korean Autonomous County of Jilin Province, China. A large Korean diaspora has also resulted in Korean-speaking communities in countries around the world. Korean is the primary member of the Koreanic language family, with Jeju and sometimes Yukchin considered other languages in the family (these are sometimes considered Korean dialects). Korean has two standard varieties—North and South Korean—but the two are largely mutually intelligible.
Korean is a grammatically complicated language that always strictly positions the verb at the end of a sentence. The language relies heavily on context, with speakers freely omitting subjects and objects if they’re obvious through context. Korean is also distinguished by its strict honorific system that employs different speech levels depending on the relationship between interlocutors. Grammatical particles can differ depending on the speech level, but the differences are concentrated in verbal inflection. Getting honorific speech wrong can be extremely rude in Korean, so it’s vital to have a professional Korean interpreter who knows exactly how to navigate this challenging linguistic situation.
Our Korean interpreters can meet you in person or join your call remotely.
Considering that there are many reasons why a client may need Korean interpretation services, it’s important that we, as an interpretation services provider, offer flexible services. Some clients may want to meet their Korean interpreter in person—this will be essential for on-the-ground interviews in Korea or official, governmental interviews. In other cases, remote interpretation services may suffice. We’re pleased to provide both types of Korean interpretation services.
If you need an on-site Korean interpreter, we’d be happy to send a team member to you anywhere in Korea or the Korean-speaking region of China. Actually, in many cases, we can even send you a professional Korean interpreter if you’re outside of Korea, if you’re in an area with a strong Korean presence. If you’re not, don’t worry—we can send a Korean interpreter to you anywhere in the world as long as you’re willing to cover the transportation expenses.
If remote Korean interpretation services are sufficient for your purposes, we provide those, too. Remote interpretation services are easy—our interpreter joins your call (whether it’s over Zoom or Skype or the traditional landline telephone) and interprets between Korean and English in real time. Our interpreters are available across various time zones, so no matter what your needs are, we’re certain we have the right Korean interpreter for you.
Simultaneous or consecutive: choose the type of Korean interpretation you want.
Are you looking for Korean interpretation services where the interpreter translates at the same time as the speaker is speaking, or would you prefer Korean interpretation services where the interpreter waits for each speaker to finish before translating the content? The first type is called simultaneous interpretation, and it’s great for large multilingual events or conferences where audience members wear headsets to hear the presentation in their own language. It’s also ideal for live TV broadcasts. The second type, consecutive interpretation, is well suited to smaller meetings, conferences, interviews, and other situations that involve a back-and-forth dialogue. Our team is trained to provide both types of Korean interpretation.
We can interpret Korean for any industry.
Are you worried that your Korean interpreter won’t understand the technical jargon in your field? Don’t be. Our Korean interpretation team is full of experts from a wide range of disciplines, so we’ll match you with an interpreter familiar with your industry. You can also request a specific dialect, particularly if you’re working with the Jeju dialect, and we’ll match you with the best Korean interpreter for your specifications.
