Despite foreign investors heavily investing all across the globe, there are millions of people still living below the poverty threshold. In the developed as well as underdeveloped countries, the impoverished masses do not have the basic necessities of life namely food, clothing and a decent shelter. Climate change in some parts of the world including Africa and Asia has resulted in drought and depletion of water resources. This has severely affected those who depended on their lands for living. Although the global economic crunch has badly affected the low income group, there are professional translators working in NGO’s to uplift the living conditions of the poverty-stricken masses all over the world. Even in the developed countries, there are people who cannot afford the basic necessities of life and a decent shelter. They are unable to afford medical treatments. It has also been observed that stress due to unemployment and financial insecurity leads to drug abuse and alcoholism. Therefore, poverty is one of the major challenges which the modern world is facing today.
We often overlook the role of translation service companies and translators who are making concerned effort to meet these challenges, said one certified Polish translator working for the Portland translation services of The Marketing Analysts Translation Services company. The recent investments made in Africa, especially for the oil and gas explorations have only been possible with the aid of certified translation companies. The same is true for any overseas investment made in any region of the world. The investors need translation services and translators/ interpreters to effectively communicate with the local populace. Also without translation companies, no intercultural dialogue or negotiation can take place.
It is also interesting to note that the recent investments have increased the demand for interpreters and translators all over the world, hence creating a lot of opportunities for linguists. The rising need for labor in Africa is a positive development for the region, not to mention the opportunity of working as interpreters for those who are bilingual. This shows that translation companies have directly and indirectly played a very positive role in serving people.
In order to create social harmony all over the world, uniformity in living standards needs to be achieved. Global peace and harmony depend upon an equal distribution of resources and availability of the basic necessities of life for everyone. As long as translation companies like The Marketing Analysts Translation Services Company are working towards this goal, there is hope of betterment in the lives of impoverished masses. Such companies are also a source of employment for many people.
