Spanish Translation Services Singapore
Do the words buenos días and adios sound like music to your ears? Welcome to the wonderful world of Spanish.
If you have an interest in history, then you may know that Spanish is an extremely old language that is derived from a dialect of spoken Latin and a written standard was developed in Toledo from the 13th century.
You must be familiar with the famous master explorer and navigator Christopher Columbus. Even though he was Italian by birth, he managed to convince Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand of Spain to pay for his maritime voyage, and the rest, they say, is history.
Together with the likes of England, Portugal, France and Holland, Spain set about establishing colonies worldwide centuries ago, and its greatest success may very well be the lands of South America.
With the notable exception of Brazil, which was colonised by the Portuguese, Spanish is widely spoken across the continent.
Interesting Fact on Spanish Language
As you may be well aware of, Spanish is one of the world’s major languages.
It is a working language of the Olympics and an official language of the European Union.
It is difficult to calculate the number of native Spanish speakers worldwide, but estimates put it at more than 400 million, which puts it at number two, just behind Chinese.
Is Spanish standardised throughout the world? At first thought, this may appear true.
However, because the population of Spanish speakers is incredibly diverse, there are many variants in use in different parts of the world.
Generally speaking, and to simplify the situation, we can subdivide Spanish into 2 different forms: European Spanish and Latin/South American Spanish.
In what key ways do they differ? One of them would be forms of address.
For example, when Spaniards say you (plural) to a group of friends, they often use ‘vosotros’. However, South American Spanish speakers use ‘ustedes’ in the same context.
Another difference is that some English words are translated differently. For example, mobile phone is Móvil in Spain and Celular in Latin America. As you can see, the differences are quite significant.

Spanish Document Translation
If you are translating your Spanish documents for the first time, you may be at a loss with regards to how to proceed:
How would you find a suitable translation service provider? Throughout the years, WhizWordz has established, fortified and improved upon a unique 5-phase demonstrated system where the quality of our Spanish translation is assured:
- Translation phase
After the client has confirmed the job, we will look through our database of approved and tested Spanish translators and choose one that is suitable. Our translators are professionals who have at least 3 years of experience and have acquired the required translation and language certificates.
- Editing phase
After the translation has been completed, it is sent to our editor who proofreads and edits the translation to make it smoother, while ensuring that the syntax and grammar are correct. After the editing is done, he will send the edited document back to the translator for further discussions and amendments.
- Final checking phase
After both the translator and editor agree on the changes, we will check the translation one more time in order to pick up any typos, formatting problems and inconsistencies that may have been inadvertently missed out in the first 2 phases. This extra round of checking is extremely useful.
- After sales service phase
Finally, the completed translation is handed over to the client by the sales professional. The client checks the translation and if there are any discrepancies or queries, he/she is free to ask them and these will be addressed by our professional translators and editors who were involved in the translation and editing process.
- Closing phase
After the above 4 phases have been completed, the translation cycle has ended. However, if questions or problems occur in the future, we are very much open for further discussions where necessary.
As you can see, there are many steps involved in translating your Spanish documents. Nevertheless, these are imperative in order to produce a great piece of translation with the highest quality. The effort and time spent will surely be worthwhile
