Tu parli italiano?
Do you speak Italian? I do and I can honestly say that I love this language very much. For this reason is easier for me to learn Spanish or Portuguese for example. However this article is about Italian language.
I have lived in Italy for a while and I also have travelled there a lot so I will speak from my own experience and I think it is always the best when you write some articles.
In Italy you have many accents as well as dialects. There are 20 different regions (Abruzzo, Puglia, , Basilicata, Veneto, Campania, Emilia- Romagna, Friuli- Venezia Giulia, Calabria, Lazio, Liguria, Lombardia, Marche, Molise, Piemonte, Sardinia, Sicilia, Toscana, Trentino- Alto Adige, Umbria, Valle d’ Osta).
 Every region has his own capital city. For example region Lombardia has Milan as a capital. Why am I talking about it? Every region has his own accents as well as dialects.
There are even another languages like for example in Naples. We say that they speak Naples language. When I went to Naples 3 years ago I understood honestly nothing because their language has nothing to do with Italian language. Another language you can find also for example in Sicily or Sardinia. The truth is that even in the same region there could be differences in terms of accents or dialects. I have a friend from Catania and Siracusa in Sicily. The distance between these cities is around 70 km. I can honestly tell you that their accents are totally different.
At school they teach you general Italian language. If you want to be translator from Italian language to your mother tongue or another language, the general Italian should be enough. However when you go to Italy for holiday you will be surprised that in some places you simply do not understand what people say. Do not worry about it. The point is that you try to speak and Italians are very happy when they see it.
Do you still want to make Italian translations? I do because I just love that language with all those different accents and dialects.
