Spanish to English Translation: Language Considerations
Spanish is the primary language in 20 countries around the world, with a total of around 500 million native speakers, and the second most spoken language in terms of the total number of speakers (native speakers and non-native speakers).
Spanish is spoken in Spain, Central and South America, the United States (which is home to the second largest Spanish-speaking population after Mexico – in the US there are around 50 million Spanish speakers), and parts of Africa and Asia (there are around half a million native speakers of Spanish in the Philippines, for example)
From a language learning perspective, Spanish is probably not as difficult for a Native English Speaker to learn when compared with some other languages, such as German and Mandarin.
Different Forms of the Spanish Language
There are some differences between Spanish from Spain and Spanish from Latin America, both in terms of accent and the vocabulary and grammar structures used. Furthermore, there are also differences between the language between different countries in Latin America, and even between different regions of the same country.
These differences are comparable (in some ways) to the differences in the form of English used in the UK and the US – a good speaker of Spanish will encounter differences in the different countries, but should have no problems making him- or herself understood in the different environments.
The Royal Spanish Academy is the organisation tasked with maintaing the integrity of the Spanish language, and publishes style guides and dictionaries with the aim of standardising the language.
Spanish Translation and Localization
We work with the very best Spanish to English translators from around the world – and we really mean “around the world” – our connections in the UK, the US, Spain, Mexico, Peru, Colombia and elsewhere mean that we are able to select and work with the best team of translators for each particlar job.
Translators always work best when translating INTO their native language, and so for Spanish to English translation this means translators from the US, UK, and other English-speaking countries. For English to Spanish translation, we work with native speakers from Spain, Peru, Mexico, Argentina and others and for localization projects it is extremely important that the translators are not only experts in the languages, but also local cultural experts – local knowledge and understanding is key when it comes to accurate localization.
At 100 Percent Languages, as well as working with translators who are native speakers in the target language, we also work with true bilinguals (native speakers of both languages).
Spanish to English Translation: The Business Environment
The sheer number of Spanish speakers around the world and the business opportunities with the English-speaking countries and other countries that use English as a business language mean that there is a significant demand for both Spanish to English and English to Spanish translation services.
