Facts about the Spanish language

Before thinking of having your documents translated by Vietnamese translation specialists, why not discover a little about the language itself?

  • Spanish, also called Castilian, is a Romance language that originated in the Castile region of Spain. Romance languages include Italian, French and Portuguese.
  • The earliest known written use of the Spanish language was in Toledo, Spain, in the 13th century.
  • The Spanish language was strongly influenced by the Arabic language between the 8th and 14th centuries when Spain was under Islamic rule.
  • Eight per cent of Spanish words come from the Arabic language.
  • After Spain colonised large areas of America from the late 15th century onwards, the Spanish language also absorbed vocabulary from Nahuatl, Quechua and other indigenous languages.
  • Some of these words have been absorbed by the English language too. For example, jerky (as in beef jerky) comes from Spanish charqui, which in turn comes from Quechua ch’arki (dried flesh).
  • There are over 300 million native Spanish speakers around the world and Spanish is the official language of 21 countries, almost all in Central and South America.
  • Spanish is considered the world’s second-most spoken native language, after Mandarin Chinese.
  • In documents translated from English to Spanish, you’ll notice the use of inverted question and exclamation marks (¿ and ¡).
  • You may also notice that the Spanish translation may occupy up to 20% more space than the English original. This is because the Spanish language is more detailed and expressive than English.
  • It is important for Spanish translators to gauge the level of formality required in a text. E.g. there is a formal and informal way of saying you in Spanish – Usted and – and it is essential that the correct version is chosen.
  • Good Spanish translators must also be aware of the use of accents since these can completely change word meaning. For example, mi and mean my and me, and leaving off that little accent can reflect badly on the Spanish translation.
