Denver, CO, January 21, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Demand for translations of exotic and less common languages has been rising sharply in the last several years, according to language translations expert Nina Ivanichvili, CEO of the Colorado-based language translations company All Language Alliance, Inc. Ivanichvili and the firm's management identified a unique new trend in the worldwide demand for medical interpreting, legal translations and business interpretations in languages that many people have never heard of before.
"Every day we field more and more phone calls and inquiries from clients who not only don't know the language or anything about the culture of the people who speak it, but they generally can't even pronounce the name of the language because they're such uncommon tongues."
However, these uncommon – and in some cases rare – languages are nothing new to Ivanichvili, who is widely considered one of the leading experts in language translations in the country. Having founded All Language Alliance, Inc. nearly two decades ago, there's little doubt that the document translation specialist and her ever- growing multilingual team of translators and interpreters are capable of helping to bridge the gap between language groups. But Ivanichvili says there's a lot more to this trend than it might seem.
"This consistent increase in the need for language translations in rare and uncommon languages and dialects means that the world is getting smaller. The divide between cultures is disappearing, and with it will come an increasing demand between different cultures and tongues for communication. Ultimately, that's what this is all about – communication – the most vital resource we have as human beings."
According to the language translations services website, some of the lesser known languages offered for medical interpretation, legal translation, deposition interpretation, and business translations services include languages such as Dari, Hmong, Laotian, Burmese, Igbo, Nepali, Twi, Marshallese, Pashto, Chuukese, Fulani, Ewe, Swahili, and Punjabi – among many others.
As the demand for these languages increases, so too will the demand for language translation services from companies like All Language Alliance, Inc. This is especially true considering that the 2000 US Census report states that only 9% of Americans speak a second language. And because a recent Texas Department of Education study indicates that fewer schools in the U.S. offer foreign language courses today than just ten years ago, it seems probable that the need for competent translators will continue to increase.
When asked if this trend indicates a possible new career path for American students to pursue, Ivanichvili responded affirmatively.
"There's a great deal of opportunity in the field of language translations, and this opportunity is almost certainly going to continue to grow each year. In fact, we've hired new translators just to handle languages that were far less common than the mainstream foreign legal translations and on-site medical interpretations that we do."
