Did you know that over 7,000 languages are spoken throughout the world?
Most of you are probably only exposed to a handful of those languages. But, some of you may have grown up with parents from two different backgrounds, studied languages a lot in school, traveled and picked a language up, or learned one for the sake of business.
In Malta, the official languages are Maltese and English. One of those languages is spoken in almost every country in the world, the other does not get heard much outside its own country.
For this situation, translation services in Malta can help expand your world. Imagine going from being able to communicate in only a small part of the world, to being able to communicate in the MAJORITY of the world.
These are the benefits of using translation services.
Increase Your Business
This is especially important for a country like Malta. In 2019, Malta was the 123rd ranked GDP country in the world. With the domestic economy not being ranked the best, it is important to look for opportunities globally.
Well, Malta’s top exporting destinations are Germany and France. Both countries have two of the most popular languages in the world, with French ranking fifth.
While English is at minimum a common second language in all three countries, not everybody speaks it.
Making a business deal with somebody who speaks another language can expand your opportunities. However, a complication that might rise in going this route is that both parties may want a contract drawn up in their own language if they do not fluently speak the same language.
Even if they can speak the same language, reading it can be a whole different challenge for some languages. There are some languages where people who speak the language cannot read it.
When it comes to business contracts, you want to know EXACTLY what you are signing before you sign it. For that reason, having a document translation service that can translate 150 different languages fluently could make or break your international business relationships.
More Location Flexibility
In a world globally connected by the internet, we have more flexibility to work and live in any part of the world than ever before.
Say you want to move from Malta to the UK. But, you are worried that not speaking the native language will be too challenging for you. A translation service can be perfect for getting you settled into your new home.
You can send a copy of your apartment lease through a translation service, an employment contract if you are trying to work overseas, or even an application letter if you want to communicate better with who you are sending it to.
For those of you who get serious in your new home and need to go through more legal proceedings to get yourself more permanently situated, this will come in handy.
Say you want to get married to a partner you met in another country? What if you want to apply for citizenship? You will most likely need a translation service to make sure everything is translated appropriately in that language.
This is important because, with those legal proceedings, what mistype or one missed translation can significantly set you back in those processes. Having a translation service available will give you a greater ability to live anywhere in the world.
Getting an Expert
With online translation services, you are getting someone who is an expert in the language that you need to be translated and who probably has years of experience handling these situations.
But, that is not the only type of expert you can get. It can also open up doors to connect you to an expert in certain industries.
Let’s say you are part of an art museum looking for unique pieces to display in an exhibit. But, the top artist for the subject you are going for does not speak your language.
A translation service can allow you to connect with people at the top of an industry you may not have access to without the spoken language. You can get a letter or email translated to express your interest, and then run a potential offer through the service as well.
A More Connected World
Understanding each other’s languages has a great ability to bring people together that otherwise would not be able to communicate their thoughts, interests, or knowledge.
Even right now, we are in the middle of a pandemic that has all of us in this together. Scientists and politicians from all over the world are trying to work together to contain the virus and keep their people safe.
A translation service could potentially make vital documents among other things readable for everyone in the world involved.
On a smaller scale, a translation service could allow people to learn about other people’s cultures, and people from all over the world can be interested in the same thing because they understand what is being said.
Anime comics and shows are mostly made in Japanese but are translated into several languages for international audiences. Basketball has advertisements in English, Mandarin, and much more. Heck, even the Bible has been translated into hundreds of languages.
What there is to be gained here is a better understanding not only for us but for others.
