Spanish
At home on more than one continent

Just like our language experts. Diction is your language partner for authentic translations and meticulous editing services in Spanish – a language which is spoken in 21 countries in Central and South America, in Africa (Equatorial Guinea) and, of course, in Spain. And a language which, after English, is the most widely used in the world for international communication. Our team of Spanish native speakers are virtuosos of this musical world language

and can provide all of our linguistic services for the following varieties:

  • European Spanish
  • Latin American Spanish (in all regional varieties)

What are the differences?

One example is the Latin American term for skirt (“pollera”), which for European Spanish speakers conjures up images of a woman selling chickens rather than an item of clothing. And particularly challenging is the fact that almost every Spanish-speaking country has its own word for beans (Spain: “judías”; Venezuela: “caraotas”; Colombia: “fríjoles”; Mexico, Peru and Central America: “frijoles”; Argentina, Chile and Paraguay: “porotos”; the Canary Islands: “alubias”).

There are some interesting grammatical differences as well: in European Spanish, “tú” is used for the personal pronoun “you”, and while it is used in South America, in some countries (primarily Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay) it is replaced by the word “vos”.

At Diction, we use exactly the words that you ask us to, and we can work in PDF, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, QuarkXPress and InDesign documents. We can even translate directly via your website’s CMS.

Feel free to contact us.
