White paper on localizing in Latin American languages


Friday, 19 August, 2016

Andovar Pte Ltd, a provider of language-related services in over 80 languages, has released a white paper on localizing into the languages of Latin America. The paper covers linguistic, ethnic, social, cultural and geographical diversities along with answers to common localization questions.

Latin America is dominated by Spanish and Portuguese, but still maintains indigenous languages and more recent creole creations in some areas. Even where European languages are widespread, they tend to differ from the forms used on the Old Continent. This white paper delves into this linguistic landscape to answer the questions of where and how to localize for the region.
