Touch typing appears to help with language development. These were the findings of a team of experts in Nijmegen, published in the journal Levende Talen Tijdschrift. They carried out research among 234 primary school children from various schools and discovered that the children who have learned to touch type have better general language skills than children who have to look for the letters whenever they write an essay.
The cause is not yet clear
However the reason for the difference is not clear from the research. According to researcher Van der Meijden, it may be related to the fact that children who cannot touch type use up a lot of their thinking capacity in looking for the right letters. They do not have the capacity to also work on their language development alongside this. Children who can touch type do have this opportunity, which gives them a head start on the rest of the class
Naturally this is interesting to us, as a translation agency, because we benefit from good language development, and we make exclusive use of digital processing options in carrying out our translations. This means that our translators have learned to touch type problem-free, which in turn means that we can work optimally on language development.
Typed translations for optimum language development
Our typed translations help to maintain the level of language development while we are working, so that you can count on a translation that is linguistically correct, without us needing to specifically spend time on this. Furthermore we applaud efforts to stimulate courses in touch typing for children, so that the generation of the future can work on their language development optimally.
