Italian translation services
On-time delivery guaranteed, with no surcharges ever
An eye for detail
Italian is an official language in Italy, San Marino, Switzerland and the Vatican City and is spoken by more than 63 million people. The number of people learning Italian as a foreign language has increased of late – this means an additional 70 million Italian speakers. The Italian taught in classrooms and the standard language spoken in Italy are based on the Tuscan dialect, however, there are so many dialects in Italy that someone from Northern Italy might not understand a person from Southern Italy. With the help of our native translators, we are up to speed on the slight nuances and constant changes. In order to avoid making mistakes, even when we translate the most complex texts, three experts work on each project: a translator, an editor and a proofreader. All of them work as a full-time translator with at least 5 years’ experience in translation, are native speakers of Italian and hold a degree in translation.
Translating specialist documents from Italian or to Italian
We mainly offer translations from English into Italian, but we are also comfortable when the source language is another European language, while we naturally translate out of Italian too. We undertake the translation of countless types of documents, including clinical trial documentation, technical manuals and licence agreements.
We guarantee the very highest quality for all translations we undertake. We expect the translators at Albion Languages to be almost as experienced in the topic of the translation as the author of the document. In the case of technical, scientific and medical translations, for example, the author and the target audience often have a degree in medicine or a PhD – just like our translators.

The Italian language
The Italian language belongs to the Romance group of languages in the Indo-European language group. Italian dialectology is one of the richest fields of Romance linguistics. Many Romance dialects are used in Italy, with the number of dialects totalling 200 according to some estimates. Of these, the Tuscan dialect became the standard. In this process, Dante Alighieri, who is also considered the father of the Italian language, played a central role, as he wrote his epic poem, the Divine Comedy, in this dialect rather than the usual Latin, thus making it a language of literature.
Did you know?
Until 1861, Italy did not have an official national language. The Tuscan dialect only became the official language of the country in that year.
Pizza is one of the words of Italian origin that is probably understood anywhere in the world. It should be noted, however, that Italians are not satisfied with how the word is usually pronounced in a number of European countries. Correctly, the word is pronounced with the “ts” sound, instead of a “dz.”
If you ask Italians about the longest Italian word, they would probably say “precipitevolissimevolmente” which consists of 26 letters and means very quickly. In fact, a medical term of 29 letters is the longest word, but people tend to forget about it as it is not used in everyday language.
“Aiuole” (flower beds) is the shortest Italian word to include all five vowels.
