What are the benefits of translation by a native speaker? Read on and find out.
‘Mother tongue’ or ‘native language’ refers to the firs language we learn from birth. A mother tongue is generally the language that one speaks best and identifies with.
Translation by a Native Speaker
Ideally, a translator should only translate into their native language. Why? Native speakers are considered to be an authority on their mother tongue. Because they acquired the language naturally instead of learning it later in life, they have better command and proficiency. Acquiring the language through personal interaction with the language and its speakers, instead of learning it in a classroom- type setting also allows the native speaker to learn the culture and the nuances, slang, and terminologies that have been affected by culture and socio- political factors.
Native speakers will not necessarily speak or write in their mother tongue perfectly, or know every grammatical rule of the language. However, they will have a natural “intuition” to the language because they learned the rules unconsciously through experience.
