The Global Dominance Of English

English language

Because English still holds supreme power in the online world, it is probably the most powerful language in the world  today. It entered the stage in the mid-twentieth century, after World War II, when it replaced French as the common language of diplomacy. English has maintained its supremacy ever since, but it may not continue to dominate forever.  Times are changing, economies are booming, new markets are emerging, and website owners should be on the lookout- you never know when the reign of English may cease. The question emerges: if you decide to localize your site, what would your second choice of language be? Who is challenging the language supremacy of English?

Mandarin Chinese Challenge

It is assumed that Mandarin Chinese is one of the most prominent languages in the world today. According to an estimate that dates back a few years, Mandarin is the mother tongue of nearly 950 million people, which is double the number of native English speakers. Mandarin is spoken by people in China, Singapore and Taiwan, but it has also overtaken English as the most widely used second language in Hong Kong. If we include dialects and local variants, it is clear that Mandarin is a strong language with an enormous base. It is still far from being the most powerful language on the Internet, but it is here to stay, and its importance will probably only increase in the years to come.

Spanish as a Global Force

In addition to Mandarin Chinese, there is Spanish. The importance of Spanish should not be underestimated: it is a language spoken by around 400 million people in Spain, South America (excluding the Portuguese-speaking Brazil), Equatorial Guinea and Western Sahara. In the United States, Spanish is the fourth most widely spoken language and is recognized as the native language of 37 million people, which is around 10% of the country’s population. Due to a massive influx of immigrants from Latin America, Spanish has grown so rapidly in the U.S. that there is a strong demand for professional Spanish tranlation services.  With the global economy changing, it is quite obvious that Spanish will rank high as one of the most in-demand languages for website localization.

Other European Languages

However, Mandarin and Spanish are not alone in the race against English. Strong, highly developed countries are striving towards having websites in their native languages. Germany, France and Russia are such countries. The stronger a country, the greater its need for expressing independence. Although German, French and Russian have fewer native speakers than English, they are still globally recognized and taught around the world as second languages. There are other languages, such as Hindi and Arabic, which have a multitude of native speakers, yet somehow they are not currently getting picked up by the online community.

We live in a world dominated by English, but it doesn’t mean that it is the final lingua franca of civilization. Latin and Greek both served as a lingua franca for centuries, but they are now dead languages.  There are more than 1 billion people speaking English, but only one third of them speak it as their native language. Technological advancements and nationalistic aspirations might easily change the balance of linguistic power in the future.

Evaluating Translation Services

With the market full of translation companies, selecting an accurate and reliable translation company can be extremely challenging.  Here is a list of several factors to evaluate when selecting a translation service.

History and Experience

Consider the number of years that the translation has been in business.  Generally, companies with greater tenure are most likely to provide quality work and have high quality, knowledgeable translation specialists in your field.  THE MARKETING ANALYSTS has 20-years of experience in the translation service industry.  During this time, we have successfully serviced the needs of individuals, corporations and government agencies that have required medical, legal, financial, technical and other fields that require translators with specialized training, education and expertise.

Qualifications

How does a translation company screen potential translators?  Does the translation service company have a formal recruitment and selection process in place in order to guarantee the highest quality service?     THE MARKETING ANALYSTS requires that each candidate for a translation position have a minimum of ten years of verifiable professional translation experience.  We also perform thorough reference checks that relate to past translation projects.  Our educational requirements insist on native level language proficiency combined with an advanced degree or certification in their specialized subject field.

On-Time Service and Project Management

Your project has deadlines and you need peace of mind that your project will be completed on time.  On average, our translators complete 2,000 words per day.  However, we also offer rush service in case your project has very short deadlines.  While we do charge extra for rush service, we might be able to meet your tight deadline.  Please call us and we will tell you for sure.

Honest & Knowledgeable Customer Service

Time is money and you cannot spare either on novice professional service providers.  When you work with THE MARKETING ANALYSTS, you can expect quick and honest answers to your questions. We are interested in your long-term business and work hard to earn your respect and positive word of mouth referrals. Therefore, we expect you to ask questions and you can expect our utmost attention.

Price

Different translation companies have different pricing structures.  Most companies will charge per word.  However, rates may differ based on the specific language and localization, education and expertise of the translator, and additional services like desktop publishing and express services.    It is important to realize that if a price seems too low, then it probably is.

THE MARKETING ANALYSTS is a U.S. based company that serves clients throughout the world.  With two decades of success, THE MARKETING ANALYSTS remains true to the values that fuel its success today: accurate, fast, friendly, and honest service.   Our clients can still count on receiving this exceptional service.  As a leading translation services company, we are committed to helping you achieve your communication goals.
