What we do
Ssak – meaning ‘sprout‘ in Korean – Communications was born in 2015 with a simple goal: to be a bridge for businesses to and from Korea, and to effectively and authentically bring Korean content overseas.

We Know Korea
Transcription, translation & subtitling
Transcription, Translation & Subtitling
No more sub-par subtitles! Our translators are native speakers of the target language, so you can be sure that your content comes across naturally, accurately, and as you intended. We specialize in both fiction and non-fiction translation. What’s more, all of our translations are double-read by a native speaker of Korean, giving you that extra layer of certainty that what you’re trying to say is what’s understood by your audience.
Looking to better understand the Korean market? Want real, valuable insights into Korean consumers and audiences? Let us lead a cultural deep-dive for you. Whether it’s an online survey for Korean students, a focus group of young professionals in Korea, or a niche recruit within a specific, local community, we have the expertise, the outreach, and the feet-on-the-ground to get your business the knowledge that it needs.
Need an article about the best travel spots in Korea? Have a Korean client that urgently requires a press release? Perhaps you need to market a Korean cultural event in your country, and you’re looking for a communications partner to make sure you get it right? Our expertise spans press relations, digital marketing, editorial writing, and branding. Contact us to see how we can help.
Since 2015, we have worked with a wide range of clients both in Korea and internationally, on projects ranging from transcription and translation, to event planning, event marketing, press relations, market research and interview moderation, survey creation, blogging, and more.
