Spanish Language Translation
Spanish is the world’s second-most spoken native language. A Romance language that emerged from Castile in Spain, it has grown to become the primary language of twenty nations around the world. The estimates of those who speak Spanish range from 470 to 500 million worldwide. Spanish language translation services for corporations and individuals is in high demand globally. At least seventy-nine countries have a Spanish-speaking population, including:
Bonaire and Curaçao
Trinidad and Tobago
U.S. Virgin Islands
Spanish is one of the United Nations’ six official languages. Additionally, the African Union, the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States, the European Union, the Organization of American States, and the Union of South American Nations all regard it as an official language.
Considering its widespread global use, Spanish language translation is vitally important for U.S. businesses, and those abroad, to translate into and from the multiple dialects of Spanish, which include Pan-American, Peninsular, and Standard, not to mention the inter-languages such as Creole, Portuñol, and Spanglish. These regionally diverse forms demand that when translating, the grammar and vocabulary must be letter-perfect, the exacting level of accuracy that ASTA-USA has been providing since 1987.
Rising Importance of Spanish Language Translation in the U.S.
Spanish speakers in the United States outnumber all other foreign languages combined. For perspective, that includes Chinese (all languages and dialects), French, German, Hawaiian, Italian, and all dialects of Native American. In fact, the U.S. Census reports that Spanish is the primary language spoken at home by 38.3 million people. That figure has doubled since the 1990 census.
A Pew Research article notes that number is forecast to increase to 43 million by 2020. Pew also finds that 95% of Hispanic adults feel future generations need to speak Spanish. Most importantly, young Hispanics today are more likely than their parents to use Spanish in everyday and business settings. If you are serious about the future of your business in the U.S., then you are already translating into and from Spanish but if not, ASTA-USA is here to help your business grow.
