LOCATION STUDY

Translation is all about converting source text from one language to another. So, being a part of the translation industry one needs to work with different languages to be able to address clients from various parts of the world. Shan works in 1800 language pairs and has quality native translators associated with it. Translation will be useful only if understood by the target audience. So, a language location study is required to know what language is spoken in which country which helps in providing the right native translator for the project. We are very particular in delivering quality work to our clients so below is the language location study done by us which helps us to know which language is used in which part of the country.
