About Spanish language and culture

Spanish is a Romance language that originated on the Iberian Peninsula and is now spoken by many people around the world. In terms of native speakers, it is the second most spoken language, and it is also an official language in many nations. Moreover, it is also one of the 6 main languages of the United Nations along with Arabic, Chinese, English, French, and Russian.

Spanish has a lot of dialects that vary widely from location to region. The standard version of Spanish, known as "Castilian," is the one that non-native speakers are most usually taught. Castilian Spanish is based on the dialect spoken in the central Spanish area of Castilla.

Spanish is notable for its phonetic spelling, which means that words are pronounced in the same order as they are written. This can make it easier for students to accurately pronounce words. Spanish syntax is comparable to that of other Romance languages, with a variety of verb tenses and moods to express distinct meanings.

What are the challenges of Spanish to English translation services?

There are several challenges that can arise when providing translation services between Spanish and English. Some of these challenges include:

1. Vocabulary

Both Spanish and English have a large and varied vocabulary, but there are many words and phrases in one language that do not have a direct translation in the other. This can make it difficult to accurately convey the meaning of the original text.

2. Grammar

The grammatical structures of Spanish and English are quite different, and this can make it challenging to translate between the two languages without changing the structure of the original sentence.

3. Idioms and colloquialisms

Both Spanish and English have a wide range of idioms and colloquialisms that may not be easily understood by someone who is not a native speaker of the language. This can make it difficult to accurately translate these phrases.

4. Cultural differences

There are many cultural differences between Spanish and English-speaking countries, and these can affect the way that certain concepts and ideas are expressed. It is important for a translator to be aware of these differences in order to provide an accurate translation.

Why you can’t rush the job of English to Spanish legal translation

As an economically influential country within the European Union, Spain attracts interest from a wide range of businesses. Consequently, even many organizations outside Spain partner with businesses in the country – and this is one significant reason why legal tangles can result.

Any rushed or sloppy attempts to translate legal documents from English to Spanish – or the reverse – can potentially leave inaccuracies that alter how terms and clauses detailed within the text are interpreted. This, in turn, can have severe financial consequences for the parties concerned.

This sheds light on why Spanish to English or English to Spanish legal translation services should be handled meticulously, and by people who thoroughly understand both languages. At LingArch, we have staffed our legal translation team with native Spanish speakers proficient in this language.
