Tagalog translation tips
Translation text expansion
When translated from English, text in Tagalog grows roughly 28 percent lengthier than the original source. It is a rich and expressive language, meaning ideas are expressed in a more long-winded fashion. This is important to keep in mind, especially for designers and formatters.
Tagalog vs. Filipino
Tagalog and Filipino share many similarities and are generally mutually intelligible, but they remain two distinct and separate languages. To reach Tagalog speakers, translators should possess an intimate knowledge of the Tagalog language, both its nuances and distinguishing characteristics. Without this, translated content may seem unnatural or unengaging.
Tagalog language facts

- Tagalog is part of the Malayo-Polynesian subgroup of the Austronesian language family, which has a total of close to 400 million speakers.
