Perfect translations from Mexican Spanish by the translation agency Fasttranslator

Despite its many unique characteristics, the Spanish spoken in Mexico still belongs to the Indo-European language family. Although more than sixty languages of indigenous peoples and tribal groups are recognized as national languages in Mexico today, Spanish remains the official language and native tongue of the majority of the country’s one hundred million people. However, it was not because of legislation that Spanish became the official or standard language of this country. The Mexican government speculates there to be around four hundred different dialects spoken in the country today. Nevertheless, Mexico is still the largest Spanish speaking country in the world. We just so happen to have mastered both spoken and written Spanish! We want to translate for you! Just give us a call or send us an email! We look forward to hearing from you!

Spanglish and Mexicanisms

In recent years, Mexican Spanish has been greatly influenced by the linguistic characteristics of Mexicans who immigrate to the United States and later return to visit their home country. North American English has overlapped with this group of people’s Mexican Spanish to such an extent that another dialect of its own has begun to take form: Spanglish. In comparison to other Caribbean and Latin American countries, the Spanish spoken in Mexico is relatively clear and distinct. The typical Mexican dialect is actually pretty easy to recognize. Along with the North Americans, many indigenous tribes and native inhabitants located in various regions have largely influenced Mexican Spanish as well. Parallel to Spanglish, which was influenced by North Americans, there exists a dialect made up of Mexicanisms that can be derived from indigenous peoples.

A plethora of unique traits

Mexican Spanish differentiates itself from that of the once homeland mainly with unique features in its slang, vocabulary, intonation, and grammar. Among other things, two typical aspects of Mexican Spanish are the frequent use of the diminutive form and the growing use of the word "ahorita", which stands for "now", but has the connotation of meaning “immediately” or "in a few hours". Although Mexican Spanish contains a distinctly characteristic accent and intonation, the importance of the Spanish vocabulary still remains clear. In general, Mexican Spanish comes across as a more articulate and much more calm variety than Creole Spanish or the Spanish of other Latin American countries, for example. The everyday language and slang in Mexico are considered to vary extremely. Every social class and age group in Mexico typically has its own slang. This makes it difficult for a foreigner to communicate, even if his Spanish is good. For this reason, we employ exclusively native speaking translators who have been raised with the language and are familiar with the cultural aspects and linguistic peculiarities of Mexican Spanish.
