For clients wanting to translate English to Spanish, here's a common query:

Can a single Spanish translation be used for all Spanish speaking countries?

In the majority of cases, the answer is yes.

While there is considerable variation in spoken Spanish from country to country and region to region, written Spanish is largely uniform throughout the Spanish-speaking world. As with English, there are vocabulary differences from country to country.

In recognition of this, qualified Spanish translators are trained to produce a “neutral” English to Spanish translation. That is, the Spanish text will employ widely used vocabulary. This aims to avoid country-specific usage, and so will be understood correctly by all Spanish speakers.

Nevertheless, for certain types of texts destined for a single country only, it may be advisable to ensure the translator is from the target region, or to review an existing “neutral” Spanish translation to ensure it conforms to local language usage.

Spanish - where is it spoken?

  • in Spain and its islands
  • most of Central and South America (the main exception being Brazil, which is Portuguese speaking)
  • widely in North America
  • in the United Nations - it's one of the 6 official languages

Spanish is considered the world's second most spoken language after Mandarin.


Spanish translation with typesetting

We regularly typeset our Spanish translations in all major design programs.

Our experienced typesetters are practiced at resolving the only real issue with Spanish typesetting - accommodating the typically 15-20% longer text in the space available in the design file.

All English fonts include the accented letters found in Spanish, so artwork can be supplied as either raw text files or outlined to curves.

For information on our Spanish typesetting pricing and processes, see our multilingual typesetting page.
