What Is The Difference Between A Language And A Dialect?

As translators, we receive translation and localization projects in lots of different languages: Spanish, British English, American English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, Croatian….and the list goes on.
However, sometimes when out services are requested, our customers confuse the concepts of language and dialect. So this week’s post is devoted entirely to examining the differences between language and dialect.

The Origin Of Romance Languages

At Acantho, we work with a wide variety of languages. And just as it’s useful to know different languages, it’s also really interesting to delve into and discover their origins and roots. In this post we’re going to take a closer look at the group of the Romance languages. This is the language group that is most important for us, as a EU-based translation company, since it contains many of our working languages.
