The Translation industry and Globalization

The translation industry is a very important industry. It is a constantly growing field which is creating new opportunities every day in the workforce. In this constantly growing economy of the west and the increasing strength of the global economy of the east, especially the Middle East and China, the need for and value of translation services has been steadily increasing.

The purpose of this blog is to discuss the Globalization of the world, international business and politics, and anything that has to do with languages.

Languages are a very important part of our culture. They are the main vehicle by which we express ourselves. Many psychologists believe that we would go crazy with out the outlet that language gives us to express ourselves. You can see this clearly in the cases of people who have a stroke and all of a sudden lose their ability to speak and don't know sign language. They often go crazy. The best therapy for them is to learn sign language.

Language are very deeply instilled in our culture. Cultural norms are often the impetus for new words. When we learn a new language, we often learn about new concepts and ideas. For example, love is expressed in many different ways in many different languages.

We will be discussing the topic of love in several languages in our next blog.

Please keep up with our blog as we will be updating it twice per week.

Thank you for reading our Web Log.
