Challenges in Malayalam-to-English translation


Malayalam and English are nothing alike. This can complicate the translation process, as there may not always be a good equivalent to a Malayalam term in English. Malayalam, which is one of India’s 22 scheduled languages, giving it considerable prestige, is part of the Dravidian language family, situated primarily in southern India. Thus, it’s not related to Hindi, which, as an Indo-European language, is related to English instead.

One key difference between Malayalam and English is the writing system—Malayalam is written in its own script, called the Malayalam script. Malayalam consonant and vowel characters are combined to create syllabic glyphs, with a total of 578 possible combinations. In terms of grammar, Malayalam features seven noun cases, and the pronoun system is complex. Malayalam has different versions of “we” to distinguish whether the listener is included, three levels of formality in the second-person pronouns, and third-person pronouns that indicate how close to the speaker the referent is. This can make Malayalam difficult to render accurately into English, but our Malayalam translators are trained professionals with expertise in various translation domains.
