From global to local
As you probably already know, there isn’t really one single universal Italian language. Many Italian words and phrases can be singular to a particular area and would be as foreign to an Italian speaker from outside the region as words from Mandarin or Ewokese. On the other side, there are some words that may be used in all Italian-speaking countries, but which have entirely different meanings depending on which of those countries you’re in.
As such, if you’re planning on expanding your business to one of these Italian-speaking countries, it’s important to employ the right language. You want the language to sound as natural as possible to the locals, but you also want to avoid mistakenly offending anyone. Therefore, only qualified and experienced Italian translators can deliver the right and appropriate content translating from one language to another.
Italian language history
Known as the world’s most musical language and the language of the Renaissance, the Italian language has a very rich history. It is the most direct descendant of Latin and derives as such mainly from “vulgar” Latin, which was the most common spoken language in ancient Rome opposed to classical Latin, which was mainly used in a literary and ecclesiastical scope. However, as time went by, the language evolved and many dialects sprang up. It was not until the 19th century that the language spoken by educated Tuscans spread to become the language of a new nation.
Many Italian words correctly used today in written and spoken Italian (for example: gloria, causa, poeta, memoria, medicina, simile) are taken directly from the Latin language of 2,000 years ago.
There are numerous Italian dialects spoken throughout Italy. In fact, almost every region has its own, unique accent. While the literary Italian language is used throughout the country for law, business, and education, many people still use their region’s original Italian dialect. Meanwhile, most Italians speak and understand modern-day Italian, it’s important to familiarize the most popular accents. The 6 most common Italian dialects are Milanese (Milan), Venetian (Venice), Florentine (Florence), Romanesco (Rome), Neapolitan (Naples) and Sicilian (Sicily). All accents evolved through time and have numerous influence, as such as Latin, Greek and other European languages.
For example, the Sicilian accent is often mistaken with a completely foreign language as they talk with a very thick accent.
