Who speaks Korean?
75 million people in North and South Korea speak Korean (한국어 in Korean) The 25 million North Koreans play no role in either the Internet or the global economy, while in South Korea, which represents 2% of the world economy, over 80% have access to the Internet.
Mother-tongue translators of Korean
One of the aspects to be taken into account before hiring a English-Korean translator is that this should be his or her native language. If the translation is from Korean into English, they must be native English speakers; but if you need a translation from English into Korean, translators should ideally be Koreans.

Where does Korean come from?
Until the 7th century, Korean was written in Chinese characters, which are not suitable for agglutinative languages, and so a syllabic alphabet was developed. In the 15th century an alphabet was created that is still used today, Hangul, a completely new creation that finally prevailed in the 20th century.
Korean is spoken by about 63 million people in South Korea, North Korea, China, Japan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Russia. The relationship between Korean and other languages is uncertain, although some linguists believe that it belongs to the Altaic languages. Grammatically, Korean is very similar to Japanese and about 70% of its vocabulary comes from Chinese.
