THE WORLD LANGUAGE OF THE IBERIAN PENINSULA
Translations into Spanish
Spanish belongs to the Romance languages and is also called Castilian. After English, Spanish is the most widely used language in international communication and is the official language in many countries beyond Spain, such as Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Equatorial Guinea, Panama, Peru, Chile, Argentina and Mexico. Spanish is the mother tongue of over 500 million people.
The inverted question (¿) and exclamation mark (¡)
A special feature of Spanish is to introduce interrogative or exclamatory sentences with a ¿ or ¡. Here is an example:
¡Hola! ¿Cómo estás? – Bien, ¿y tú?
Hello! How are you? – I’m fine, and you?
As a translation service provider, it is important to know for which market or country a Spanish translation is required. Besides “Spain” Spanish, the main variant is “Latin American” Spanish. Here some words have changed their meaning compared to the “Spain” Spanish. On the one hand it was influenced by American English and on the other hand by indigenous languages from South and Central America. This means that we ask our customers before the translation which Spanish should be used for their translation.

Good to know: What needs to be considered when translating into Spanish?
Spanish has an expansion factor of approximately 1.2-1.3 compared to German – in other words, the Spanish target texts are slightly longer than the source texts in German. Layouts need to be adapted and require special attention from the translator and the graphic artist.
Combinations that we offer and are requested most often:
- Spanish – German
- German – Spanish
- English – Spanish
- Spanish – English
COMLOGOS delivers excellent Spanish translations with desktop publishing (DTP):
Your brochures, catalogues, websites, operating instructions, assembly instructions and warning labels need to appear exactly the same in Spanish as in the source language? Our experts will take care of the necessary layout adjustments so that differences in length in the individual languages do not cause you any trouble.
The layout of the target file is adapted by our graphic artists so that the original layout is retained even if the target language requires more space due to the expansion factor. The adapted layout is then checked by our translators before the layouted translation is delivered to you on time.
