Vietnam and the United States, as well as France, have a long history together. Much of it has been bitter and violent, but these days the relationships between the West and Vietnam have warmed considerably. That’s why it’s important to take into account Vietnamese to English translation, and the power dynamics of Southeast Asia.
Of course, tourism has been on the rise in Vietnam. The country has some nice beaches, great food and weather, and a very rich history. Recently, with conflict brewing between China and Japan up north, and disputes over the Spratly Islands (claimed by China, Vietnam, the Philippines, and others) ongoing, Vietnam has regained some significance on the geopolitical stage. Occasional military skirmishes with China have only heightened this country’s need for a good relationship with the West, and the need for solid Vietnamese to English translation services.
