India is a country of multiple languages: 22 scheduled languages recognised by the Indian Constitution. In addition, there are more than 1500 languages and dialects used across the country. In no other country does the importance of translation take on such mammoth significance!
Ah, the wisdom of the founders of the Indian Constitution!
They felt that every Indian needed three languages: one to identify with the local group (call it the mother tongue), one for national identity (Hindi), and one for international communication (English).Thus was born the Three Language Formula. Translation Service
Three languages are bare minimum: just enough to get through school and college but certainly not enough for all the activities that make up life in the modern world.
Need for translation within India
Just run through all the channels on TV. Think of all the movies that you have seen dubbed into various languages: don’t marvel at James Bond speaking fluent Hindi or Rajnikant being the new (or old?) Japanese heartthrob! Consider that a friend was awarded for translating science books into Urdu- something much needed.
Music, literature, films, TV shows, political speeches, textbooks, documents, and innumerable written and oral necessities require translation to transcend regional boundaries. Effective translation is essential to reflect local languages, sentiments, and ethos.
India, the Global player
Acknowledging the attraction that India, with a population of 1.25 billion, holds, Google’s top boss, Sundar Pichai says, “India shapes how we build products. If something works in India, it will work globally.”
India is playing meaty roles on the international stage and is all set to play bigger parts and star leads. This isn’t possible unless communication ceases to be a barrier: thus, the need for translation services. Multi-national = multi-lingual: let there be no doubt.
