Argentine Spanish - translations by the translation agency Fasttranslator
Spanish is the only official language in Argentina. This language is spoken by the majority of Argentina’s more than forty million inhabitants as their native tongue. There are still extant minority languages, especially of the indigenous population, such as the Quechua, Guaraní, Mapudungun, Kolla, and Mapuche languages. Although the Spanish spoken in Argentina is significantly different from that spoken on the Iberian Peninsula, it still belongs to the Romance branch of the Indo-European languages.

Argentinean Spanish or Castilian Spanish
When visiting Argentina, a person who learned Spanish in school will be puzzled by the fact that even with his or her knowledge of the traditional, Spanish from Spain, he or she will barely be able to understand the Spanish of Argentina. In fact, Argentine Spanish has become so variant that it barely has anything in common with the language of the Spanish homeland. For this reason, the Argentines have not called their own language Spanish for quite some time and instead refer to it as Castilian. Argentine Spanish, or Castilian, was certainly influenced by the language of many Italian immigrants. As a result, a large vocabulary was borrowed from Italian along with the adoption of many grammatical features. The same goes for the characteristic pronunciation of Argentine Spanish or Castilian. For example, "ll", "j" and "sch" are spoken in a typical manner known as Yeísmo. The "z" and "c" are always clearly pronounced before an "e" or before an "i", a style described as Seseo. There are many of these variations of Spanish characteristic to Argentina, even including the greeting, "Buenos dias!" (Hello!), which was shortened in Argentine Spanish to simply "Buen dia!". The meanings of many Argentine Spanish words have changed significantly from the original meanings in Spanish. Due to their characteristic and unique way of speaking Spanish, Argentina is seen as extreme among the Spanish speaking nations of South America.
