The world’s economies are only growing. The world, not in terms of physical space, but in terms of social interaction, is getting larger by the day. As businesses grow, and sectors such as tourism are prone to further development, the need for efficient and consistent translation services will see a surge in growth too.
Some of the most cosmopolitan places in the world, the ones that are business and tourism capitals too – like Singapore, Hong Kong SAR, and cities across India – have an expanding demand for translation services. All these places have diverse ethnic groups. For instance, in Singapore, there are Malays, Chinese, Eurasians, etc.
In India, the diversity speaks for itself, with Christians, Hindus, Muslims, Parsis, Sikhs, etc, and several communities with varied dialects. In Hong Kong SAR, there are Han Chinese, Indians, Filipinos, Indonesians, and other groups.
In all these countries, English is of paramount importance as a language of communication in the fields of business, tourism and education (none more so than in Singapore). However, all of them are primary business-friendly hubs – Singapore, followed by Hong Kong SAR, and India. They all also happen to be tourist-friendly.
All three regions are home to several expatriates. Since a wide variety of languages may be required to be exchanged while communicating, translation services offer a viable solution to the needs of many in these places. It is also good business practice to show consideration for the language of the person you are doing business with.
