Hindi Translation ServicesAn experienced Hindi translation services provider, Trusted Translations is well-equipped to manage multilingual projects involving Hindi and a broad range of other languages. Bicultural rather than merely bilingual, its well-qualified translators work to meet the tight deadlines imposed by markets and merchants that are online right around the clock.
One of the busiest desks is Hindi, which is the world’s fourth most-spoken first language, after Mandarin, Spanish, and English. When added to Urdu (forming Hindustani), these linguistic twins outrank Spanish, standing third after Mandarin and English.
Major Global Player
A hotbed of post-pandemic trade flows, India (with 22 official languages!) is tipped to be the world’s fastest-growing major economy. With a whopping 7% growth forecast for 2022, it’s already overtaken the UK, now ranking as the world’s fifth biggest economy, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
As a result, Hindi is becoming increasingly important, in economic and cultural terms. Selected as a first language by 425 million people, and a further 270 million as a second or third option, Hindi is the world’s third most widely-spoken language.
India’s Burgeoning Trade Flows
In global terms, Indian companies are taking the lead in countless fields, from space exploration (ranked fifth) to generic medications (# 1). Despite Covid-clogged trade flows, India rose three places and became the USA’s ninth largest trading partner in 2021, importing US goods and services valued at USD 56.8 billion.
On the other side of the table, India’s largest trading partner is still the USA, exporting USD 102.3 billion to the USA. The top three categories in 2021 were:
- USD 14.11 billion Pearls, precious stones, metals, coins
- USD 6.62 billion Pharmaceuticals
- USD 5.25 billion Machinery, nuclear reactors, boilers
Hindustani: Hindi or Urdu?
Centuries ago, these two languages were once the same tongue, when Hindustani was the lingua franca of Northern India. Diverging over time for cultural reasons and developing different vocabularies, they share a common grammar structure and are still mutually intelligible. However, their written versions use different scripts.
In addition to India, Hindi is also an official language in Fiji, where it’s spoken by close to 400,000 people. In Nepal, it’s the first or second language for almost two million people; in South Africa, it’s a protected language; and it’s the third official court language in Abu Dhabi.
