Translation services for emerging markets

Wednesday 12 October, 2022

As UK businesses move forward following the exit from the EU, many of the businesses are looking to emerging markets as a way to expand. As a natural result of this type of expansion, professional and accurate translations will need to be considered from the beginning. 

In recent analysis by leading research organisations such as the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), Standard Chartered and HSBC, it shows that countries across Asia, India and Africa will offer the most opportunities for UK trade.

The analysis indicates that the following nations will be the most key in the emerging markets for UK businesses and will require accurate translation services:

  • India 
  • Taiwan 
  • Nigeria 
  • Thailand 
  • Kuwait

Range of language translations

Although the list of key emerging markets is only five countries, this does not accurately highlight the number of languages that will need to be considered. 

For example, for India alone the top spoken dialects include:

  • Hindi 
  • Bengali 
  • Marathi
  • Telugu
  • Tamil
  • Gujarati 
  • Urdu
  • Kannada 
  • Odia
  • Malayalam

If you then add in all the languages and various dialects for all the countries, there is a huge number that will need to be professionally and accurately translated in order to have the most successful outcomes. 

Business translations in emerging markets 

As a result, many businesses will find that there could be a potential language barrier which would hinder their chances of successfully building a new overseas market for their products or services. 

It will be important that all communication is conducted accurately in order to build good relationships from the outset. We wrote an article back in November 2019 entitled Business Translation Services - Breaking Down Language Barriers which highlighted how businesses can use professional translations to support their new business activities. 

With each new market there will be differing factors that businesses will need to address before they can progress. These will include:
