Vietnamese translations with the translation agency Fasttranslator
Vietnamese was influenced by the native tongue of French colonists. The second official language in Vietnam was French, which resulted in Vietnamese adopting numerous loanwords from French. Also, the French colonial administration officially introduced the Latin script in Vietnam. Today, Vietnamese is spoken by almost the entirety of the country’s population. Only a few national minorities speak distinct dialects. Abroad, groups of Vietnamese speakers exist in the United States, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, and Poland. Vietnamese has three widespread main dialects: the North Vietnamese dialect called Tonkinese, the Central Vietnamese dialect, or Hue, and the South Vietnamese dialect, also called Saigon. The spelling of the Vietnamese language is largely based on the Hanoi dialect in the northern part of the country. Most songs are sung in this North Vietnamese dialect, as well. Of course, translations like these are not the only type of text we offer. We also translate into and from special subject areas with the highest quality.
A tonal language
Because Vietnamese is a tonal language, the height and curve of a syllable’s tone are capable of influencing meaning. In written Vietnamese, these tones are expressed by diacritical marks. Because Vietnamese is an isolated language, its words are not inflected, but rather given meaning by a word’s relationship to the other components of and its position in a sentence. The Vietnamese sentence structure maintains the sequence of subject, predicate, and object. Vietnamese writing was traditionally recorded in three writing systems. The first system utilized Chinese characters, which were later modified and adapted to the characteristics of spoken Vietnamese. Then came the Latin script, utilizing diacritical marks. The standardized Vietnamese script, consisting of Latin letters and various diacritical marks, is common in the country today, and missionaries from Europe in particular played a significant role in the development and adoption of these Latin letters.
