Bengali Translation combines business with People

Translation is not an easy task. Only experienced and expert translators can execute your work properly. One must be aware of colloquial style of the language. The translator must understand the difference between ‘Sudhho Bhasha’ and ‘Cholit Bhasha’.  Because of this experienced Bengali translators are always on demand and earn handsome amount of money. Translators work as freelancers or join a translation agency.

Are you thinking to launch a new product in eastern India? Then you should prepare the product manual in Bengali to reach maximum number of customers. For that, you need quality Bengali translation. And that’s why the demand of translation services is increasing with globalization.

Bengali belongs to Indo-Aryan language group. Bengali is the official language of Bangladesh and one of the 23 regional languages recognized by India. It is also the official language of Indian states West Bengal and Tripura. Bengali is the sixth most spoken language of the world. In India, Bengali is second most spoken language only after Hindi. According to UNESCO, Bengali is the sweetest language of the world.

Bengali language is widely used in schools, colleges, offices in Kolkata, the economic center of Eastern India and in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. The knowledge of Bengali can help you to increase your product market share or to execute business deals effectively. Kolkata is a major hub for industries like engineering, banking, IT, leather, shipping, Jute. So quality Bengali translation is needed in almost every industry. Many MNC companies are opening their offices or launching their products in eastern India. To capture the rural market they are taking help of English to Bengali translations. Even for machine installation we need translation services.

Bengali literature is indeed very rich. There are so many Bengali writers famous for their novels, poems, dramas and short stories all over the world. So there is constant demand of Bengali literature translation. Bengali poet "Rabindranath Tagore" became the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. His poems were translated from Bengali into many languages.

An expert translator must have some domain knowledge about the subject he/she is translating. Translation does not mean word by word conversation. One must understand the meaning of the concerned text. In literature translation, the understanding of inner meaning of poems or novels plays a vital role. Without understanding the literature one can’t translate the text appropriately. That’s why translation agencies only prefer native translators to execute the task.

Difficulty with Middle Eastern Languages during Desktop Publishing

Working with Middle Eastern Languages is like you are watching the reflection of English Language on your desktop. It’s listing style, numeric style, and paragraph alignment is completely different.

Working with CDR Format

If your source file is in CDR Format and you want to translate and publish it in Arabic, Farsi, or any Middle Eastern Language, it is a tough job. For that you need to use different software, InPage. Most of the graphic designers and type-setters use this to type ME Languages and for typography options.You need to copy your text in InPage then need to export with EPS and after that you can import in CDR.


Detaching and Attaching Farsi Alphabets

Working with Farsi is not different from other ME Languages. But while pasting the text from Word to InDesign, you can face a problem. Some alphabets attached after pasting. And if you are non-language DTPer, than you will not find this problem. To be safe from these risks you need to handle your work to a language specialist or language Translation Services provider.
