Korean is the official language used in both North and South Korea. Its genealogical classification is widely disputed and many linguists and language historians class Korean as a ‘language isolate’ (a natural language with no ‘genetic’ relationship to any other language, which has been cultivated in an isolated environment), others believe it belongs to the Altaic language family. In South Korea, the language is most often called Hangungmal or more formally, Hangugeo or Gugeo (literally "national language"). In North Korea and Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture in China, the language is most often called "ChosÅÂnmal" or more formally, "ChosÅÂnÅ"Â. Korean people in the former USSR, who refer to themselves as Koryo-saram, call the language "Goryeomal".
Just like any other nation, South Korea has its own business etiquette. See our Doing Business in Korea Page to find out more.
Simultaneous interpreting requires lots of skill and experience and can be very tiring for an interpreter, which is why it is common for two interpreters to work in partnership. They listen via a headset to the speaker and interpret what is being said into a microphone for the relevant audience members taking it in turns every 15/20 minutes.
Simultaneous interpretation like this is commonly required at conferences that involve several different languages and a large number of participants.
Consecutive interpreting is the most common type of interpreting. It is used for business discussions, negotiations, contract exchanges, commercial discussions, legal, technical discussions, medical or court hearings or on site inspections. The interpreter listens to the speaker, often making notes, and delivers the meaning in the target language afterwards. If a speech is delivered, the interpreter may wait until a pause or the end, at which point they deliver a translation relatively quickly. Consecutive interpreting may also be used at conferences for panel discussions, Q&A sessions or private discussions between parties - at a stall or elsewhere.
Facilitating interpreting is used when a client has limited English / source language skills but requires technical or in depth terminology to be clarified in their native tongue to avoid misunderstandings.
The facilitating interpreter is there primarily to ensure communication is effective and relieve the client from the fatigue of speaking in a foreign tongue.
Telephone interpreting allows parties of different nationalities, who are not able to meet in person, to communication via telephone or video conferencing.
The interpreter bridges the gap. Sometimes an interpreter is present in one of the two locations, and sometimes he/she is also located somewhere apart from both parties.
