Spanish Translation in Chile: Spanish to English, English to Spanish Translation.
Castellano is the main language spoken in Chile and in the capital city of Santiago.
It is interesting to note that while you could communicate in Spanish when you travel to Chile and tour its capital, Santiago, the brand of Spanish spoken in this South American city and country differs from the Spanish spoken in other Latin American countries. First, the native Spanish speakers in Santiago talk quite fast that it would take some time to understand it. They speak in heavily accented Chilean Spanish or Castellano, which has some differences from the mainstream Spanish that you learned. That is one of the reasons why interpretation and translation services are very much needed in the city and in the country.
With their fast manner of talking, Santiaguinos and Santiaguinas are accustomed to condensing some of the words, thereby shortening it. For example, instead of pasado, they pronounce it as pasao. In regular Spanish conjugation, you would say “tú hablas” or you speak; “tú quieres” for you want or say “tú vives” meaning you live. In Santiago and anywhere else in Chile, locals tend to say “hablái,” “queréi,” or “vivi.” The common question, “where are you going” in standard Spanish is translated as “a dónde vas?” In Santiago, this question becomes “a dónde vai?” These are just some of the quirks of the Chilean Spanish that you would encounter when you visit Chile.
Chile is one country with a very rich and colorful past, until it established itself as a strong democratic nation with a steady and growing economy, which is an impressive feat. Today, Chile is well known globally for foreign trade and its sound economic policies, making Chile one of the highly reputed nations in South America and across the world. This prominence further exposed Chile as an international leader, in addition to being known for its natural splendors and fascinating culture.

It is said that when you are in Santiago, Chile, you could enjoy the ski slopes and then go to the beach all in the same day. That is because Santiago is centrally located.
Santiago is one of Latin America’s most developed cities and is increasing getting modernized and urbanized. The busy metropolis is a finance and commerce hub. Construction work is continuously carried out in the city, which is getting crowded by the new and glistening high-rise buildings and other infrastructures for residential and business purposes. Business is booming in Santiago, and with more than half of the citizenry speaking Spanish, the city is continuously in need of the services of a professional, fast and accurate translation and interpretation service provider. Over 40% of Santiago’s residents reside in the city; a city that is a mix of the old and the new, with modern complexes set amid colonial architecture, quiet parks and brilliant and pulsating entertainment centers, high-end shopping locations competing with earthy and rowdy but fun flea and public markets, and elegant, romantic restaurants side by side idyllic and rustic small food shops.
Santiago is elevated 543 meters above the level of the sea, and its central location affords visitors and locals alike easy access to the beaches that are about 100 kilometers away and the ski slopes, which are only 50 meters from the city. Interestingly, Santiago is only about a hundred kilometers from the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean.
It has a Continental Mediterranean climate and has a long dry season, very much ideal for going to the beaches in Valparaiso or Vina del Mar. The temperature is quite mild, even in winter, so it is pleasant all year-round with an average temperature of about 14.5 °C or just 58 °F. January temperature on the average only goes up to 21 °C or nearly 70 °F, and it is the warmest month of the year in Santiago.
“While German and English are also spoken in Santiago, English being taught in schools now, there are still several inhabitants of Santiago, particularly those who are older who are not conversant in English but would prefer that you talk to them in their own language. Spanish and English are used in business, while English as well are French are used in the tourist centers within the city.”
The city is culturally diverse, having European influences coming France, Italy, Germany and Spain mixed with indigenous cultures. You would find plenty of delightfully savory and aromatic food in the city, but do lookout for some local fare like empanadas, centolla or king crabs, stews or cazuela, asados or roasted meats and pastel de choclo or casserole made of meat stuffing and corn.
