Spanish Translation Service

Home / Spanish Translation Service

Spanish is not just about Spain. In fact, the bigger Spanish speaking market is north and south America. It is one of the most spoken language after English and Chinese. As such you can imagine the economic potential of the Spanish speaking world. Translating into Spanish will connect you with millions of Spanish speakers all over the world. However, you would need to work with a professional to tell the subtle differences between the type of Spanish used.

Professional spanish translation for the global spanish speakers

Spanish translation is definitely not a run-of-the-mill affair. There are much more things to consider than just getting someone who knows Spanish to handle translation into English and from Spanish.

Spoken by more than 427 million people worldwide, the Spanish language (Spanish: Español) is the second most widely spoken language in the world and the third most used language on the internet. Apart from Spain, Spanish is also the official language in several other countries, including Mexico, Colombia, Argentina and United States. In fact, most of South America uses Spanish.

One of the many challenges of Spanish translation is that there are many type of Spanish used all over the world. The main variation in the types of Spanish used are the European Spanish and Spanish of America. Depending on the locality, there are differences in the grammar and formalities to be used. A formal pronoun and more elevated title are often used as a sign of respect or in formal settings.

Spanish is often a “longer” language. Spanish translation tends to be at least 30% longer than English source text. This may pose a huge problem when it comes to the layout of Spanish translation where the space may not have been created for that additional text expansion.

Spanish is spoken in more than 20 countries worldwide across different continents. As such, you can expect even Spanish itself has many cultural nuances unique to the place it is used and thus is used differently in different countries. We have to even consider the wide demographic range of the Spanish speaking markets over the different regions which can have their own special lingos.

There is also much confusion between English and Spanish, although both are different languages. This is because, a lot of Spanish words actually evolved from Latin, which has a tremendous influence on the English language. As such, there are many words shared between both languages which are in common from Latin, despite its evolving definitions over time. For example, the word ‘pie’ is a tasty pastry in English but in Spanish, it actually means foot (which we do not recommend eating)!

All of those mentioned above are merely the tip of the iceberg.

About the spanish language – Español

Now let us focus on Spanish, the language.

There are many things that comes to your mind when you think of Spanish. But if you think Spanish is only spoken in Spain, the land of bull fighting, Flamenco dancing, delicious tapas, and of course famous soccer teams like Barcelona and Real Madrid, you cannot be more wrong!

The history of the Spanish language begins with its first appearance in the form of notes in Latin religious texts known as the Glosas Emilianenses, dated from the 11th century. During the 12th century, law codes (Fueros) were being translated into Spanish.

Spanish prose flourished during the reign of King Alfonso X the Wise of Castile (1252-84), who in addition to being the king and a poet, also found time to write an encyclopaedia in Spanish called Las Partidas, which contains laws, chronicles, recipes, and rules for hunting, chess and card games. The first Spanish grammar, by Antonio de Nebrija, and the first dictionaries were published during the 15th and 16th centuries.

Today, Spanish is spoken by more than 427 million people worldwide not just in Spain but also in many countries in North, Central and South America.

In recent years, there are some Spanish companies achieving multinational status, often expanding their activities in Latin America. You will be surprised that Spain is the second biggest foreign investors there, after the United States!  There is also an expansion into Asia regions, especially China and India. Primed to make a major impact worldwide in the coming decades apart from Chinese and English, the importance of the Spanish language cannot be undermined.
