English to Italian Translation Projects
We assist organizations with documentation or marketing material (e.g. brochures, manuals, website content, PowerPoint presentations, product labeling, etc.) that are written in Italian and require accurate translation into English.
Of course, in addition to English to Italian and Italian to English translation assignments, we can also assist you with the translation of the world's most popular languages to and from Italian: Arabic ↔ Italian; Spanish ↔ Italian; French ↔ Italian; German ↔ Italian; Japanese ↔ Italian; Portuguese ↔ Italian; Russian ↔ Italian; Korean ↔ Italian; Chinese ↔ Italian; Hindi ↔ Italian; to name but the most popular.... We can source translation expertise for virtually any language pair.
Italian Language Style
Our translators, editors and proofreaders render well-written and clearly understandable texts. We place a high value on rendering a finished product that is faithful to the language style of the original text.
Italian to English Translation Projects
We assist businesses in finding the best available Italian to English language translation resources – including experienced Italian language translators (native-speaking Italian if appropriate or required).
In our experience, a Italian language native-speaker may not necessarily be the right translator for the job. (See: Common myths and misconceptions about translation.) Though a native-speaker may be preferable for certain translation assignments, having Italian as a native language may not 'translate into' Italian language expertise (pun intended). An experienced linguist with strong Italian and English language translation credentials, in-depth experience and professional credentials, regardless of native language, may often prove to be a better choice.
Identifying and securing the services of the appropriate Italian language resources is what we do! (Refer to our Italian translation assignment process for information on our Italian translation project management process).
In a nutshell, we use professional translators who have a solid mastery of the Italian language (grammar, spelling, cultural nuances) and a solid understanding of the subject matter.
Once we are confident that the appropriate freelance resources have been identified and certain that we can honour the project deadline, we submit a quote for the translation assignment.
If we cannot secure the appropriate resources, we will do our best to refer you to Italian translation sources of information that we have confidence in.

Italian (italiano, or lingua italiana) is a Romance language spoken as a first language by about 63 million people, primarily in Italy. In Switzerland, Italian is one of four official languages. It is also the official language of San Marino. It is the primary language of the Vatican City. There are approximately 110-120 million Italian speakers globally.
Standard Italian, adopted by the state after the unification of Italy, is based on Tuscan and is somewhat intermediate between Italo-Dalmatian languages of the South and Northern Italian dialects of the North.
Unlike most other Romance languages, Italian has retained the contrast between short and long consonants which existed in Latin. As in most Romance languages, stress is distinctive. Of the Romance languages, Italian is considered to be one of the closest resembling English in terms of vocabulary. Lexical similarity is 89% with French, 87% with Catalan, 85% with Sardinian, 82% with Spanish, 78% with Rheto-Romance, 77% with Romanian, and 52% with Maltese.
It is affectionately called il parlar gentile (the gentle language) by its speakers.
