Laos: One of the world’s fastest-growing economies that we don’t talk about much is Laos. The complicated history of the country has made many people ignore it. But after colonization, monarchy, foreign involvement, and dictatorship, Laos has managed to rise up. Today, it is a socialist republic that is progressing steadily. It could become one of the major economic powers of Asia in the future. It relies on electricity made from water for its economy. It also exports electricity to its neighbor countries of China, Thailand, and Vietnam. The effects of French colonization can still be seen in Laos. Some portion of the population speaks French to this day. www.universal-translation-services.com | info@universal-translation-services.com

Lao Language: The official tongue of the land is known as Lao or Laotian. It is the primary language of the eponymous ethnic group. They make up more than fifty percent of the population of Laos and follow a form of Buddhism. As a language, Lao is often confused with Isan. Many linguists consider the two to be the same because of their similarities. They are both mutually intelligible. The current version of the Lao vernacular has been heavily influenced by the Thai language. It continues to adopt Thai words, especially technical terms. It also regularly adopts common Thai words as it is. www.universal-translation-services.com | info@universal-translation-services.com Thai, Isan, and Lao are all quite similar in their spoken forms. Their speakers can talk to each other without any difficulty. But it is their written scripts that create differences between the three tongues. Laos is ethnically and culturally diverse, which is why almost ninety different vernaculars are spoken there. Amidst all that, Lao acts as the lingua franca for the population and help them communicate with each other. There are six popular dialects of the vernacular, out of which Vientiane has become the one that is used by the government and the population of the country. In the future, it could be given the status of the Standard Lao by the state.

Lao Language Translation: Lao is a complicated language because of the similarities it shares with other vernaculars of the region. An outsider will not be able to point out the differences between the tongues of the region. But when it comes to translation services, the difference must be clear so accurate assessments can be made. Only a native speaker of the vernacular who has studied the tongue and developed a thorough understanding of it can translate it accurately. This is something that people don’t realize when they are in need of translation services. www.universal-translation-services.com | info@universal-translation-services.com If there is one thing that is important in the language industry, it is accuracy. And accuracy isn’t something you can get from the internet or a bilingual relative. You will have to find native experts. Someone who has been speaking a language since their childhood and has been working as its translator for quite some time will be able to handle it accurately. An incorrect translation can ruin the reputation of any business. It can end a campaign before it has even begun. Many companies ignore these warnings and assign the task to some inexperienced translators, just so they can save money. But they should know that good agencies don’t charge unfairly and provide quality assistance before the deadline.

Certified Translation of Lao: If you have never thought of leaving your homeland and immigrating somewhere else, you probably haven’t faced the cruelties of life yet. But most people think of an escape too often in life. Some are running away from war and politics, while some want to get away from poverty and inequality. Whatever the reason may be, many people turn to other countries for a better future. But they have to prepare their case with care if they want their application to get accepted. www.universal-translation-services.com | info@universal-translation-services.com
