Spanish is an elegant language in the world. Someone has said “French is the language of love. English is the language of business. German is the language of war. And Spanish is the language with which to speak to God. ”
Spanish is one of the six official languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, Spanish) of the United Nations, and is used as an official language by the European Union and Mercosur.
There are at least 407 million Spanish native speakers in about 44 countries. The number of native speakers makes Spanish rank as the world’s No.2 language ahead of English (359 million), Arabic (293) and French (74) but far behind Chinese (1.2 billion).
Spanish has become more and more important and popular in the world. Football and Latin America’s economic development makes Spanish known more by the world. In America, the second language students should learn is Spanish, which could be seen in some American movies. More and more Americans communicate in Spanish. One reason is a large number of south Americans migration to the United States, another reason is that Latin America’s economic development makes Spanish is becoming more important than before if American wants to do business with them.
For China, it is the same. With the rapid development of globalization, especially Latin America’s economic recent years, the communication of politics, economy, trade and culture is deepening, so that Spanish is becoming more important than before between China and Latin American countries. Therefore, Spanish to Chinese or Chinese to Spanish translation could be needed largely. Personally, learning Spanish is necessary; for translations service companies, whether they could provide high quality priced translation service between Chinese and Spanish is very important.
There are not many Spanish linguists in China. In the past, there was not much communication between China and Spanish speaker countries so that there was smaller demand for Spanish service. The second important reason is that few universities had the Spanish courses and not many students prefer to English not Spanish. Even at present, there are only three test centers for Spanish they are Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong and many cities don’t have the Spanish training courses in China. The third reason is about the test method of Spanish. If you want to show others your Spanish level, it is important to show your accent and pronunciation. It is a little hard for Chinese students who are mostly good at writing test and poor in oral Spanish.
Based on the above facts, it is necessary for translation service companies to have enough Spanish linguists who can satisfy the customers in need of Spanish translation service. God always blesses the first to eat crab.
