Have you happened to notice the difference between LA and Iberian Spanish?

Hi,

I have been noticing and increase in the demand for LA translators.

What can we do about it?

Thanks for any advice.

LA Spanish Apr 9

Likewise, I have seen an increase in demand for Mexican Spanish instead of just neutral/standard Latin American Spanish. I used to resent this preference, but now I have come to accept this reality.

You can't do anything about the demand for LA Spanish.

If you are able to translate into the language requested (there are huge differences in LA Spanish. Every LA country has its own specific way of communicating), you can take the job. If you aren't, it's better to decline the job.

Standard Latin American Spanish means: Apr 10

The “standard Latin American Spanish” is the dominant dialect of Spanish found throughout Latin America, including Mexico, Peru, Colombia, and Bolivia. Small differences between the different countries do exist regarding accents and regional slang. But we can say that the majority of the Spanish spoken follows this Standard Latin American Spanish dialect.

I would go far beyond this and say that there are 3 major varieties of Spanish:
1. Spain Spanish
2. Standard Latin American Spanish
3. Argentinian Spanish

Having myself lived for a few years in Argentina, I can say that Argentinian Spanish (including Uruguayan Spanish) is really a leage of its own!
