World's Most Spoken Languages: Broaden Your Horizons. 06/22 🌍

We live in an increasingly multicultural world and we cannot deny the fact that a lot of people speak at least two languages today. At LingoStar, we love using different languages every day so we've decided to dedicate this newsletter to the most spoken and the most studied languages around the world. You'll find out interesting facts like how the French language is, apart from English, the only language spoken on five continents! 🌎

Are you wondering how this is important in translation? Well, the job of a translator can be both challenging and exciting at the same time because a translator is not only driven but also has a responsibility to keep up-to-date with the latest language trends. The same can be said for a translation agency.

A translation agency should be aware of the most spoken languages in any given period of time in order to have translators available for projects requiring those languages. At the same time, it should also source translators for rare and less widely spoken languages to be able to accommodate various client requests. We're lucky to be able to cater for all language needs at LingoStar! We can carry out projects in the most requested languages in Canada, such as Chinese and French, as well as some rarer ones, such as Taglish and Irish.

This is also thanks to the great help of talented young students who join us from various countries to undergo translation project management training in our company. Read a blog post written by our recent French intern where she describes her experience of completing a translation internship. Are you getting curious? Just keep scrolling to know more!
