All About Latin to English Translation

Do you need help translating a document from Latin to English? Although Latin is the basis of the Romance languages which are spoken by millions of people today, the Latin language is understood by few in the present day. If you're in search of an individual who can not only read Latin, but also knows how to translate from Latin to English, then you've come to the right place. With Voices, you can get access to trained professionals with a firm grasp on the Latin language.

The Latin language has a storied history. The first recorded Latin scriptures date back to 75 BC. Latin was originally the dominant language of the Roman Empire, and existed through many ages and iterations, including Old Latin, Classical Latin, Vulgar Latin, Medieval Latin, and Renaissance Latin. For many centuries, Latin served as the official language of scholarship, science, and international communication, before giving way, in the 18th century, to the Romance languages we know today. The most prominent Romance languages, which emerged from Vulgar Latin, are French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Romanian.

Latin is considered a dead language, meaning that its vocabulary is fixed and that no words can be altered or added to it. Because it is no longer used for everyday communication, you will only be able to find a few million people around the world who can read, write, or speak in Latin. While Vatican City doesn't have an official language, Latin is the official language of the Roman Catholic Church, and there is even an ATM in Vatican City with instructions that are written in Latin.

Latin and English are both written from left to right using the Latin alphabet. The Old Latin alphabet included 21 characters, which grew to 23 characters during the Classical Latin period—a few letters short of the English language's current 26 characters. Traditional Latin sentence structure also varies from typical English sentence structure. While English sentences are normally composed in an order of subject + verb + object, Latin is instead written subject + object + verb, or object + verb + subject, or object + verb.
