Italy and the italian language – the language of music
Known as the world’s most musical language and lingua franca of music, Italian is the national language of Italy. Why language of music? It is apparent that many of the most important classical composer from the Renaissance to the Baroque period were Italian. Many musical terms are also in Italian. Not convinced? Have you heard of Acappella? Aria? Concerto? Opera? Yes. These are not English words. They are Italian!
Apart from Italy itself, Italian is also spoken in different countries around the world, namely Germany, United States, Croatia, Belgium, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Slovenia, Romania, just to name a few.
In the recent years, Italy has attracted the attention of foreign investors globally. This is especially so in their proven global competitiveness in machinery, which showed promise and openness to investment.
Italy is also the 3rd largest economy in Europe and 8th largest in the world. With its influence widespread in the arts and luxury goods market, we cannot undermine the importance of the Italian language.
The Italian language belongs to the Romance branch of the Indo-European language family. Similar to other Romance languages, it is a descendant of Latin spoken by the Romans and imposed by them on the people under their rule. There are also different dialects of the language, some which are so distinct from the standard Italian that they are mutually unintelligible.

Where translation is concerned, be it from Italian or into the language itself, the process is a feat in itself. There are several differences that can affect the meaning and style of the translation.
Despite sharing words from related languages, meanings do not always transfer interchangeably while translating the Italian language. For example, Italian speakers use ‘protagonista’ to refer to main actors in movies. The English language uses ‘protagonist’ to refer to main characters in books and stories. Choice of the right article can be confusing as well. Unlike English, the Italian language requires gender agreement and has different options for articles choice.
All of the above are not the only points to consider when translating from and into the Italian language. There are much more things to consider than just getting someone who knows Italian to handle both translations from and into Italian.
In order to execute the translation properly, knowing the language well is only half a battle won. Translation is both an art and science, which requires crucial understanding. Bear in mind that Italian loves its long sentences, while English tries to be as short as possible. This can raise issues for website design, as you may need to allocate larger portions for Italian texts or consider what to convey through images.
