Korean Academic Translation and Korean Scientific Translation

Expert translation of Korean academic papers and scientific reports


Korean academic and industry scientists are pushing the boundaries of scientific learning into new areas. Though some of this work is published in English, most Korean research is still available only in Korean. For this reason, Korean academic and scientific translators play an important role in opening up wider access to this rich body of knowledge.

With a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Texas at Arlington and a masters degree in management strategy from Hanyang University in Korea, I am now finishing up my PhD dissertation from Hanyang University, expecting to graduate in 2020. My background makes me uniquely qualified as a translator of Korean academic and scientific texts. Though I am a subject-matter expert in economics, finance, and business, I often work in other fields, too. Based on diligent terminology research during the translation process, I produce high-quality translations of Korean academic and scientific content for clients around the world.

 

Korean Academic and Scientific Documentation
A qualified Korean translator of academic and scientific texts blends subject-matter expertise with language, translation, and terminology-research skills to deliver high-quality translations of Korean academic and scientific texts.

“…Steven’s responses to my questions were always thoughtful and prompt. He delivered more than I expected. For example, our contract specified that he would compile 50 Korean contact names and addresses; he sent along 243 — without demanding more money than we originally agreed. I was delighted to learn of other services he offered to further tap into the dynamic higher education market in Korea. We look forward to continuing to work with Korean Consulting. I’d recommend them without hesitation.”

Cheryl Darrup-Boychuck, CEO (U.S. Journal of Academics – Mount Carmel, PA)


“Thanks for the prompt, professional service. This was a big help to us!”

Korean journal articles and other scientific research reports

The Korean academic and scientific literature is especially strong in electronics, telecommunications, automobiles, industrial chemicals, construction, and semiconductors. As a result, I have translated Korean academic and scientific papers and reports on all of these topics. I handle a lot of medical and social science papers (including papers in economics and finance), as well.

Though my primary clients in the field of Korean academic and scientific translation are non-Korean academics and companies needing access to Korean research, I also work with Korean academics. Because Korean researchers receive more recognition for publishing English-language articles in international journals than they do if they publish only in Korea, Korean scientists with especially high-quality research commission me to translate their papers to English. I use my skills in statistical analysis and academic writing to translate these scientific Korean documents into field-appropriate English.


“Steven, Just thought I’d say hello: I just got your latest advertisement. You made business cards for me many years ago on my very first visit to Korea. So this is a report that your cards were very useful. (I attach one as a reminder). At this point i am a frequent visitor to Korea and a professor (two months of the year) at KAIST, as in my signature below… Thanks for helping me get started.”

Korean masters theses and doctoral dissertations

Graduate-level students in Korea publishing theses and dissertations in Korean must also include English abstracts with their deliveries. An abstract is a summary of the main points of the paper. However, poorly written English abstracts that don’t read naturally–or even communicate properly–greatly detract from the potential these papers have to make a wider impact. Over the years as a Korean academic translator, I have translated many abstracts for Korean students. I have also done so for non-Korean readers who can’t understand the original English abstracts published with some Korean papers. I welcome inquiries from anyone who needs to understand critical information from Korean academic papers of all types.


“The translation went over well. I will be in touch with more work in the near future.”

Travis Murray (British International School Shanghai – Shanghai, China)

“Thank you so much, Steven.  As always, the response was quick, and one of our Korean contacts abroad says that the piece reads extremely well.  Wonderful job…again!  Thanks for the good work! Kindest regards,”

Carlos Navarro, Marketing Manager, US Food Division, Eurofins Scientific, Inc. (Testing Laboratories – Des Moines, IA)


Korean patent translation

Koreans are prolific inventors, and they publish thousands of patents every year. Patents result from efforts in academia and corporate R&D, and so the translation of Korean patents is closely related to Korean academic and scientific translation. Thanks to the strong demand for Korean patent translation, I work for many types of clients on patent translation projects. My clients include lawyers on patent cases and multinational companies studying Korean patents for business, as well as other interested users. In addition to one-off projects, I have participated in long-term patent translation contracts, as well as on a team of translators submitting translations to WIPO for review.

Note: Patents are used in a wide range of legal applications. Therefore, I discuss more about my patent translation work under my legal Korean translation services.
