Other language translation in Vietnam Aug 14, 2010

Due to proximity to their location, I have been contacted by many Vietnamese translation agencies from year 2005. I am surprised that they are very professional and competitive for oversea freelance translators. They handle jobs of many big multi-national enterprises e.g. Microsoft, Lloyd, Deutschbank, Total. I agree that Romanized letters of Vietnamese make this country easy to absorb language proficiency. Vietnam now accelerates investment on infrastructure and is struggling on inflation and monetary stabilization. I have some stocks in Vietnamese Stock Exchange and they paid well 2 years ago while start to recover again early this year. Vietnam learns many success stories from Thailand, a neighboring country. I hope the rapid growing Vietnamese agencies will not repeat failure of Thailand on langugage business, in particular during economic recession.

Best regards,

Soonthon Lupkitaro
