Dialects and Details of Spanish Language Translation
While Spanish translation is more accessible and more common, there are many, many dialects and regional variations of Spanish. The Spanish of the Americas is different from European Spanish. Furthermore, there are the many various Spanish language dialects within Spain alone. Here are a few things that translators should keep in mind when performing any kind of English to Spanish translation:
- Spanish exists in dozens of dialects around the world. In Spain, the most common dialect is Castilian Spanish – which is also used for most universal English to Spanish translation - followed by Andalusian, the second most popular.
- Within the dialect of Aranese, there are several distinct language groups within Spain: Catalan, the official language of Andorra; Basque – which is the language of an autonomous community in the Pyrenees Mtns. of Spain; and Galician, the Portuguese-influenced language of Galicia in northwestern Spain; and Extremaduran, a 3 branched language of Extremaduran.
- The Canary Islands speak a Canarian dialect which closely resembles Caribbean Spanish. However, the Spanish of Gibralter is quite unique – their dialect, called Llanito, is a combination of Andalusian Spanish and British English, making for quite a peculiar language.
- Latin American Spanish, also often called Highland Spanish, is what most of the Spanish speakers in the Americas speak. The other dialects of course are Caribbean Spanish, and more unknown, Rioplatense, spoken in Argentina and Uruguay. This dialect resembles Italian much more than Spanish in its intonation.
Professional Spanish Translation for Any Industry, Any Dialect
Translators must be fully aware of the cultural and regional differences between dialects and as well as cultural differences from country to country. Though Castilian Spanish is typically taught in schools as a second language in the U.S. and Canada, Latin American is the Spanish used in everyday life by Spanish speaking communities in these areas. Even major corporate businesses like the “Got Milk?” campaign and American Airlines have shown what can happen when people do not make wise choices about their translations. You don't want to be one of those companies that tells Latin Americans to “Fly Naked,” like the AA airlines did, all because of a bad Spanish language translation.
