As we are midway through Seachtain Na Gaeilge we thought we’d ask – just how popular is Irish?
STAR as a translation company we provide translation in over 45 languages including Irish from our offices here in Dublin 3.
We did an analysis of all our translation for 2011 and are happy to publish the results for our Irish readers.
Top 10 Languages 2011
As you might imagine our closest international neighbours are top with German and French being the most popular languages we translated last year.
Irish follows closely at number 3. Into English translation is number 4 (from various languages).
Our Japanese teams are kept very busy at number 5. Japanese is very specialised and the quality demand of the market is exceptionally high.
An interesting one in the mix is Swedish which comes in at number 8 in the list. Maybe this is the IKEA influence in Ireland.
