English to Italian Translation
Although both belong to the broad Indo-European language family, the Italian language’s roots in the Romantic language family and English’s roots in the Germanic language family can create difficulties when translating between the two. As with other Romantic languages, Italian uses gendered nouns which affect the adjectives and definite articles that go along with these nouns. As English nouns have no gender, only experienced translators can be trusted to accurately overcome this challenge and produce work that is error-free and natural sounding to native speakers.
Moreover, a seasoned translator will also be equipped to take into account the different dialects of the Italian language. With five main dialects and many more local sub-dialects, it is important for translators to recognise the intended audience of a piece of writing and craft work which will have maximum impact accordingly.
Italian translation tips
Translation text expansion
When translating from English to Italian, text can elongate by up to 10–15%. This is referred to as text expansion in the translation world. In some languages, simply more words are needed than in others to say the same thing. Expanded text can affect the layout, design and functionality of your website. This linguistic feature of the Italian language can have a big impact on design, elongating navigation menus, taglines, displays and more.
Unlike English, Italian is a gendered language. This means that words have different suffixes that indicate male or female, even in the case of animals or inanimate objects. Adjectives will also need to agree with the gender of the nouns they modify.
Italian language facts
Italian is a Romance language and part of the Indo-European language family. Of all the Romance languages, Italian is considered to be the closest to the vulgar Latin from which they are derived. In terms of vocabulary and grammar, Italian is closely linked to languages such as French, Spanish and Portuguese, while differing significantly from European languages such as German, Dutch and English.
- Italian is spoken by over 85 million people worldwide as a first or second language.
- Italian is an official language of Italy, Vatican City and San Marino, as well as one of the official languages of Switzerland.
- Originally derived from Latin, the Italian language dates back to at least the 900s.
- There are many regional variations and dialects of Standard Italian, including Tuscan, Corsican and Central Italian.
Italian regions and dialects
As the third most commonly spoken language in the European Union, an official language of five countries and one of the official working languages of the Council of Europe, the Italian language’s status as a major European language is clear. Italian speakers can also be found in the nation’s former territories in eastern and northern Africa, as well as in emigrant communities within countries including (but not limited to) the United States, Canada and Australia, making Italian a truly global language besides.
Within Italian there also exists a rich array of regional dialects. Northern, southern and central Italian constitute three overarching dialect categories, yet even within these there are significant differences, both in terms of pronunciation and vocabulary. This mosaic of dialects stems from Italy’s relatively recent unification into a single nation, having formerly been split up into various independent principalities and city-states.
