Translation Services for the Catalan Language
Catalan is a Romance language with close ties to Occitan. It also shares similar traits to French, Portuguese, Spanish, and other Romance languages. It enjoys status as an official language in the Spanish province of Catalonia, the autonomous community of Valencia, and the Balearic Islands, as well as the small mountainous country of Andorra.
Companies and individuals targeting a Catalan-speaking audience often question whether purchasing Catalan translation services is worth it—after all, most Catalan speakers are bilingual, also exhibiting a high mastery of Spanish. However, Catalan speakers are a proud people, and their proficiency in Spanish is born of necessity, not desire. To truly earn the respect of Catalan speakers, high-quality Catalan translation services are a must. That’s where the Catalan translation experts at ProofreadingServices.com come in.

Catalan Translation Services Like No Other
Though Catalan exhibits a number of similarities to Spanish and the two languages are, to some extent, mutually intelligible in writing, Catalan is a distinct language with notable differences. Spanish speakers generally cannot understand spoken Catalan, which features certain sounds not present in Spanish. Catalan also forms the past tense differently from Spanish—it uses the present tense of the verb “to go” with the infinitive of the main verb. In Spanish, this would indicate the future tense. So, making a distinction between these languages is important.
With more than 9 million speakers, Catalan is hardly a small language, even if the Spanish rule of much of the Catalan-speaking region overshadows the proud Romance language. Unfortunately, this leads both those seeking translation services and those offering them to overlook Catalan. At ProofreadingServices.com, we’re different—we understand the pride Catalan speakers have in their language, and we work hard to provide top-quality Catalan translation services—both to and from Catalan—to serve this sizeable minority.
