Spanish to Italian Translation
is the native language of 358 million people in the world, and a total of 450 million people worldwide. It is the second most natively spoken language in the world, after Mandarin Chinese
. In addition to Spain, Spanish
is the official language of many countries of South America, such as Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, and others. It is widely spoken in several other countries, including United States, Canada, Morocco, and the Philippines.
Spanish people tend to call this language Español
, and also call it castellano, i.e. Castilian, the language of the Castile region, when contrasting it with other languages of Spain (such as Galician, Basque, and Catalan). In this manner, the Spanish Constitution of 1978 uses the term castellano to define the official language of the whole State.
The evolution of the Italian language
from Latin occurred over the course of hundreds of years.
This resulted in many varying dialects of Italian
for each city since the cities were, until recently, thought of as city-states. Though all of the dialects are classified as Italian
, they are quite distinct and can be difficult to recognize as the same language. During the 14th century the Tuscan dialect began to predominate, because of the central position of Tuscany in Italy, and because of the aggressive commerce of its most important city, Florence. Moreover, of all the Italian
dialects, Tuscan departs least in morphology and phonology from classical Latin, and it therefore harmonizes best with the Italian
traditions of Latin culture.
