One of the languages we are proud to work with is Catalan. It is a distinct language, like Spanish (Castilian), French, or English. It is not a dialect or a sub-language; it is one of the Western Romance languages, which had its heyday as early as the 10th century when most of the modern European languages were still in their infancy.
Catalan people and language overview
The linguistic area of Catalan includes the southern part of France (Perpignan region), the Principality of Andorra, Catalonia (Barcelona), the Valencian Country (Valencia), the Balearic Islands (Palma), not forgetting the city of Alghero (40,800 inhabitants) in Sardinia, where a small community of some 28,500 Catalan speakers resides.
This linguistic area, which is also known as the ‘Catalan Countries’ (‘Països Catalans’, in Catalan; ‘Países Catalanes’, in Spanish), covers an area of almost 60,000 km² (about twice the size of Belgium) and is divided into four different states: France, Andorra, Spain, and Italy.
In France, the Catalan area includes part of the department of Pyrénées-Orientales (in Languedoc-Roussillon), also called "Northern Catalonia", while in Italy Catalan is spoken by a small community in the town of Alghero in Sardinia.
In Spain, Catalan is spoken in Catalonia, in the Valencian Country, in the Balearic Islands, in a narrow band of about 14 km east of Aragon, and in a part of the region of Carxe in the autonomous territory of Murcia. The Principality of Andorra is the only independent state whose official language is Catalan.
Today, most linguists consider the Catalan language to be a distinct group among the northern Ibero-Romance languages, along with Portuguese and Spanish. For other linguists, Catalan would continue to be classified as a southern Gallo-Romance language, like Occitan.
Currently, the number of Catalan speakers amounts to 10.02 million people. However, it is still very approximate, as many people claim to understand the language without speaking it in the usual way. In Northern Catalonia (Languedoc-Roussillon), which had a population of 410,000 (in 2005), data from a survey shows that 34% of respondents (approximately 140,000 people) said they could speak Catalan, which would correspond to some 140,000 Catalan speakers. However, 17% of those surveyed said they spoke it ‘well’ and 16% said they had difficulty speaking it for their lack of proficiency.
Catalan to English translation
Catalan translation is absolutely necessary if you want to integrate into the social, economic, and cultural life of Catalonia, where the language is widespread.
Again, it should be noted that Catalonia plays an important financial and economic role in Europe, so it is an attractive market for investment, exports, and imports. Therefore, having your information translated into or from Catalan by a translation agency that has a strong record of quality to provide Catalan translation services is the key to business development in Catalonia.
Another key factor in the economy of Catalonia is tourism. To attract international tourists, who often come to see the unmatched beauty of Barcelona, Costa Brava, Girona, and Tarragona, it is necessary to translate your tourism content into the main international languages, because promoting services in the native language of potential consumers will significantly increase their likability. Professional translation services are crucial to making your marketing or legal information, as well as transcription and interpretation services, look and sound smoothly for native speakers.

Professional translation into Catalan for any line of business
Many of our international clients have direct ties with Catalonia and therefore need to translate a significant part of their documents and content into Catalan. In a similar fashion, Catalan companies are interested in going global to market their products and services in Europe and beyond. Therefore, they need to translate their content originally written in Catalan to improve their position internationally.
Translating their documents, services, and products into Catalan is essential when working with the local government, as it requires all documents to be provided in Catalan.
Currently, large volumes of information are translated from or into Catalan in such areas as:
- Document Translation
- Legal Translation
- Technical translations
- Website translation/localization
- Certified translations
- Authorized translations
- Financial translations
- Software localization
- Game translation/localization
You can rely on us to deliver a consistently accurate and clear translation, localization, and interpretation of high-value information and data into Catalan (or from Catalan).
