Experts in Italian Language Translation
Many English words come from Italian, just as they do from Latin and other Indo-European languages. However, Italian does contain major differences which even Italians with intermediate English skills can overlook or mistake with an English to Italian translation service.
- Pronouns are much more complex in Italian than in English. An example is the way the Italian uses possessive pronouns for objects rather than for the subject of a sentence as it is with English – i.e. “John is at the store to buy his mother flowers.” The pronoun “his” would be a feminine one in Italian, describing the mother, not John.
- Even experienced Italian English students must think about the pronouns “we” and “us” and their usage in English. In Italian, many of their grammar structures would be equivalent to “they are not going with we.”
- Words like hair, information, law, and other words that are used in a singular form to include plural meanings can be difficult for inexperienced Italian translators at times. Mistakes such as “Her hair are blonde,” can be made by less attentive or less experienced translators.
- Connotations are different in Italian. One does not ask “how old” a person is, as this is considered a bit rude, due to negative connotations of “old” in Italian. Likewise, a sentence such as “In the summer, I get hot,” may cause an Italian to blush or giggle if not correctly translated. “I'm hot” in a word for word English to Italian translation has culturally sexual connotations.
These are simple examples of subtle but important differences, both grammatically and culturally, which demonstrate the need for experienced translators. Tomedes uses only expert professional translators for our English to Italian translation services.
