Understanding the Practice of Name Translations

Jul 31, 2008
Name translations refer to the practice of choosing a name in your own language and then having it translated into another language. This is something that can be done through the use of a professional who has training in translating different languages into English or into whatever language you want. There are a number of ways in which you can have a name translated into your language. The first is through the use of the Internet; there are a number of websites that allow you to center your child's name or even your own name and have it translated into another language. Through the translation, you are also able to find out the origin of the name and its meaning. If you are submitting your name for translation over the internet, there are several different ways in which you may receive the translation. There are some sites that give you an immediate translation whereas other require some time and the answer is sent to you either in the mail or through email.

Translations that are given to you are usually free and may not be accurate. This is that chance that you take. In this case you are simply given a translation on your screen. Nothing is printed off or emailed to you. Websites that take a few days usually require that you pay for the translation. This does not mean that the translation is perfect but in these cases you are given an email certificate or one is sent in the mail if you want it.

People often wonder why someone would want their name translated into another language other than that in which the language is spoken. This is a great gift to give someone, and in actuality this is increasing in popularity as baby gifts. People get really excited about seeing their child's name in a different language and people like to know the meaning of their names and it is something that you can keep forever.

In recent years there has been an increase in the number of people wishing to have their names translated into Chinese. Chinese names all have a specific meaning behind them and more and more people are trying to find the true meaning of their name. Another reason for the increase in the popularity of Chinese translations is that they are being taken and then tattooed on the body. People are now getting the Chinese symbols for their names tattooed on their backs, arms and legs. In addition to finding out your Chinese name, when you have it translated you are also able to find out what your Chinese zodiac symbol is.

If you are paying for to have your name translated you must keep in mind that there are different spellings to different names and you might be able to have your name translated exactly as you spell it. The common rule is that if your name is pronounced the same but spelled different the translation will be generally the same but you must be prepared for there to be a slight difference. If you are looking for a perfect translation you might want to avoid the Internet and find a person who is trained to translate your name.
