WORDtrans has the edge for English translations:
English is the third most spoken native language (after Spanish and Mandarin Chinese) with 328 million native speakers. However, a staggering 1.5 billion – a fifth of the world’s population – speak English. English has become an international language and is certainly the language of business today.
The global reach of English can be directly attributed to the strength of the British Empire in the 18th century, and particularly to the colonization of North America. As a result, English is spoken as a first language in the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and many Commonwealth countries. More recently, scientific and technical communities all over the world have adopted English in order to communicate between each other, English has become the only language used in air traffic control and English is the number one language used on the Internet.
English is, and has always been, a language in transition. Originally a West Germanic language, it quickly assimilated many words and expressions from the Romance languages, particularly French, following the Norman Conquest in the 11th century. In the last century, American English has evolved from a set of dialects into what is arguably now the primary version of the language. Elsewhere, English-speaking communities in the Caribbean, South Africa and India, to name a few, have added local words, phrases and constructions to give their versions of English a special character and charm. Today, the main influence on the evolution of the English language comes from the world of the Internet and emerging technologies. WORDtrans native translators are fully conversant with the linguistic changes that result.
It is said that English is relatively simple to learn. This is certainly true if one aims to speak it on a basic level. For example, English has only one conjugation, English nouns do not have a gender and English irregular verbs are relatively simple. However, English vocabulary is immense, thanks in part to the many other languages from which it has ‘borrowed’ terms. As a result, there are many subtle differences in expression for the foreigner to learn, although it is these subtleties that have also made English immensely popular with writers.
