Keylingo offers Pennsylvania translation services in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh

by brenton

Translating material from one foreign language to another can be tricky. As an example, a person wrote to friends in Norway in Norwegian and wanted to tell them the record of the soccer team at the college where he worked. Later, he learned that he had used the Norwegian word for “neckties” for “ties.” Fortunately, that could be laughed about.

Another time, he wanted to write professional letters. Engaging the use of a professional translator, he also learned the Norwegian cultural norms in writing a business letter.

With technology bringing the global world closer together, businesses can ill afford to get translations wrong. Keylingo Translations has 23 locations in North America, including two Pennsylvania translation services offices, one in Philadelphia in the Eastern part of the Commonwealth, the other in Pittsburgh, in the West. Why two offices in Pennsylvania? Check these numbers:

  • According to the U.S. English Foundation, 135 languages are spoken in Pennsylvania. There are 35 counties (of 67) where 20 or more languages are spoken.
  • Ten or more languages are spoken in 60 counties, and five languages or more are spoken in 66 counties.
  • Philadelphia County tops the list with 84 languages spoken, and the third, fourth, fifth and sixth spots are taken by the suburban Philadelphia counties of Delaware, Montgomery, Bucks and Chester, respectively.
  • Allegheny County, which covers Pittsburgh, is second with 76.
  • Wikipedia notes the number of Consulates in Philadelphia, saying, in addition to their own language, representatives must be fluent in French as the language of diplomacy, and English as the language of commerce and industry. The Consulates include:
