Why choose Urgent Vertalen for your legalizations?

A translation from Dutch into Italian is always performed by a translator who is a Italian native speaker. Moreover all our translators are translation graduates at bachelor level or higher.

Every text is unique, so we look at the type of text involved in each translation assignment. We believe it is only right that a native speaker translator who possesses sufficient experience of your professional terminology should perform your translation. So a technical Dutch to Italian translator will never be given a legal document to translate. This is one reason why you can depend on us to deliver a good translation between Italian and Dutch.

As a translation bureau we translate brochures, CVs, correspondence and handbooks on a daily basis. These translations are always performed carefully by one of our native speaker translators. We don't just specialise in Dutch to Italian translation. Our translation bureau also frequently handles other language combinations such as Spanish to Italian or English to Italian.

Many of our new and existing clients, such as government bodies, international businesses and private individuals need an urgent translation of for example a diploma, deed, passport or job application into or from Italian. As a Italian language translation bureau we offer you and our existing clients our fixed competitive tariffs, with no additional so called "urgency surcharge”.

About the Italian language

The Italian world

Italian is the mother tongue of approximately 60 million Italians; outside Italy some 15 million people speak Italian, which means that 75 million people have Italian as their principal language.

Outside Italy Italian is principally used in Switzerland, San Marino and the Vatican state.

Unlike the other Romance languages such as French, Portuguese and Spanish, Italian is not widespread throughout the world; this is due to the fact that Italy did not have extensive colonies, unlike France, Portugal and Spain.

Outside Europe Italian is spoken in some cities in Brazil, Argentina and the United States, where it was imported by immigrants from Italy.

In many cities of the United States there exists a ‘’Little Italy’’, a district dominated by Italians and the culture and cuisine they brought with them.

Within Europe there are also various regions such as in Wallonia and the Ruhr district where Italian is still used, albeit as a second language, due to the immigration of labour during the twentieth century.

The history of the Italian language

The oldest remaining Italian texts date from the tenth century. However many more texts have been preserved from the fourteenth century, such as the works of the famous poets Dante Alighieri, Petrarca and Boccaccio. These three poets were regarded as the founders of Italian literature.

Italian dialects

The various dialects that are spoken in Italy are not derived from standard Italian. Because standard Italian was itself derived from the dialect that was spoken in Tuscany during the fourteenth century, principally in Florence. The Tuscan dialect is derived from Vulgar Latin, the spoken version of Latin.

The various Italian dialects vary greatly from standard Italian. Prior to the arrival of mass media it was difficult for many Italians to understand each other. Everybody spoke their own local dialect.

Dialects are spoken in parts of Sardinia which closely resemble the dialects of the Italian mainland. For cultural reasons these dialects are regarded as separate languages. The authentic dialects of Sardinia, for example Logudorese, are viewed as separate languages.

Examples of other dialects or languages are Romanesco (the language of Rome), Lumbaart (Lombardian), Napulitano (Neapolitan), Siculu (Sicilian), Liguru (Ligurian), Sardu (Sardinian), Piemonteis (Piemontese), Veneto (Venetian), Mudnes (Modenese), Bulgnais (Bolognese), Furlan (Friulian).

Italian speaking countries

Worldwide Italian has an official status in four countries. Most Italian speakers live in Italy itself; besides this Italian is an official language in Switzerland, San Marino and the Vatican state. Unlike other Romance languages such as French, Spanish and Portuguese Italian is not widespread throughout the world. In small parts of Slovenia and Croatia Italian is a recognised minority language. Italian is also spoken in small parts of France, Monaco and Malta. Due to the colonial connection there are also a small number of Italian speakers in Libya, Somalia, Ethiopian, Eritrea, Albania and Dodekanesos (Greece).

Pizza and Piano

Nowadays a variety of words are used throughout the world which are derived from Italian.

Above all in the culinary and musical worlds there are words which have become so ‘normal’ that it is easy to forget that they are actually Italian.
Words like cappuccino, espresso, macaroni, pasta, pizza and spaghetti are used virtually daily throughout the world, and Italian cuisine is very accessible and popular.

Italy is also the birthplace of much classical music, together with well-known composers such as Vivaldi, Verdi and Puccini.

Many musical words are derived from Italian, such as a cappella, cello, piano and sonata.

So it can be seen that the Italian language, whilst not being as widely spoken as some other Romance languages such as Spanish and Portuguese, certainly has had a significant influence on other languages.
