As of 2019, just over 1% of the world’s population speaks Korean as a first language. Korean is the official language of both South Korea and North Korea.
Korean is spoken by more than 75 million people worldwide, with 48 million of those living in South Korea, and 24 million in North Korea. There are also more than 2 million speakers in China, approximately one million in the United States, and half a million in Japan.
After decades of rapid economic growth and global integration, South Korea has become a high-tech, $2 trillion economy, specializing in sectors such as electronics, telecommunications, automobile production, chemicals, shipbuilding, and steel.
According to the European Commission, the European Union is South Korea’s biggest foreign direct investor and third-largest export market, whilst South Korea is the EU’s eighth largest export destination for goods.

In order to accurately translate texts from Korean to English, translators must be aware of the numerous cultural and dialect differences. Like many other countries, Korea has a number of regional dialects, which add to the richness of its culture. Most of the dialects are mutually intelligible, except the distinct local Jeju language spoken by native residents of Jeju Province, which is not just a Korean dialect.
