Translation Services: A Brief Study

  • 1. Panjab University


According to the Census of India of 2001, India has 122 major languages and 1599 other languages are spoken by the 1.38 billion population of India. According to the Eighth Schedule of the Constitution, twenty-two (22) of them are considered as official languages; viz. Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Kashmiri, Konkani, Malayalam, Manipuri, Marathi, Nepali, Oriya, Punjabi, Sanskrit, Sindhi, Tamil, Telugu, Urdu, Bodo, Santhali, Maithili and Dogri. Hence, Translation services are essential for various sectors. Because most people only know one or two languages, translation services assist them in obtaining necessary information in their own tongue by eliminating the language barrier. In this study, we discussed the translation service in brief, its various types & facets, working techniques and current status of translation services & available centres in India.
