Spanish is the official language of more than twenty countries worldwide and the second most spoken language in the United States of America. With ten major dialects worldwide and many more regional variances, it’s known for its flexible syntax and often poetic phrasing. Spanish interpretation and translation services must accurately reflect the intent and nuances of the original message, regardless of the context or dialect.

Spanish Translation Tips
Latin American Vs. European Spanish
Latin American and European Spanish may technically be the same language, but their vocabulary, pronunciation, idioms, and even phrasing can vary quite dramatically. Even within the same continent, different countries (and regions within them) will reflect distinct versions of the Spanish language. Keep this in mind when sourcing Spanish translation services; know your target audience and select translators or interpreters accordingly. CanTalk can help.
Translation Text Expansion
Some clients are surprised to discover that text-based content often expands by up to 25% when translated from English to Spanish (and shrinks when translated from Spanish to English). This is mainly due to the fact that Spanish is a highly expressive language prone to denser phrasing than English, and this should be taken into consideration if specific formatting is a concern for you.
Popular Spanish Translation Phrases & Words

Spanish Language Facts
- There are 559 million Spanish speakers around the world. 470 million are native Spanish speakers, and the rest speak it as an additional language.
- Spanish is one of the only languages that use inverted question marks and exclamation marks to highlight phrases.
- Spanish is a phonetic language. This means that each letter represents a specific sound and pronunciation is consistent, which makes learning to read and speak Spanish simpler than many other languages.

Spanish Translation Dictionaries
While nothing can replace the accuracy and warmth of a live translator or interpreter, many free Spanish translation services can help you out in a pinch. CanTalk recommends the following:
- Reverso – Reverso is a simple online translation tool that works well for short phrases.
- Google Translate – Like Reverso, Google Translate can generally be trusted for short phrases but loses accuracy with lengthier entries.
- SpanishDict – SpanishDict is a mobile app that functions as a Spanish dictionary and pronunciation guide.
