Reach new customers in Italy, Switzerland and beyond
Beyond Italy, the Italian language finds its voice in parts of Switzerland, San Marino, and Vatican City. Although there are different regional variations in Italy, you will find the most remarkable differences between Swiss Italian and the Italian spoken in Italy.
Our translation experts are well-versed in these dialects. They can guide you in choosing the right variant for your target audience, ensuring your translation is perfectly tailored to your potential customers.
Italian translation tips from our language experts
All Italian-speaking areas share the same language, but we can find vocabulary, grammar, and other differences. Consider the variations in addressing audiences. While Italy often embraces a more informal tone, Swiss Italian might lean towards formality. And remember: It’s not just about correctness but connecting and engaging with your audience.
Vocabulary differences are another consideration. For instance, while the English word “self-service” is commonly used in Italy, you may often hear “servisol” (which literally means to “serve oneself”) in certain Swiss regions. When speaking to your audience, these small details make all the difference.
Hiring an Italian translator from Italy to translate your materials for your audience in Switzerland may not be the best course of action due to regional variations in Italian. Ensure your translators are native speakers immersed in the culture of the language they are translating into.
