The origin of the Spanish language can be traced as far back as the sixth century B.C. Spanish evolved on the Iberian Peninsula, home of modern-day Spain and Portugal. As Iberian natives came into contact with northern Europeans, their language got reshaped. Today, over 400 million people worldwide speak Spanish, and the language is one of the most influential in terms of shaping the world’s commerce, trade, and culture.
The Korean language is spoken by more than 70 million people worldwide, most of whom live on the Korean peninsula. There are approximately two million more speakers in the United States, two million in China, and another 1,500,000 in Japan, Russia, and the rest of Asia. Korean is historically considered one of the Altaic languages. It may or may not be ancestrally related to Japanese, but the two languages have much in common. In addition, the Chinese language has had a profound influence on the development of Korean–55 percent of Korean words are directly or indirectly associated with analogous Chinese words.
Japanese is the ninth most commonly spoken language on Earth with almost 130 million speakers worldwide–five million of whom reside outside of the country Japan. The language borrows extensively from Chinese, but it offers much simpler alphabetic and pronunciation systems. Thanks to the influence of Western nations and cultures, the Japanese language has integrated a number of foreign terms into its lexicon.
The Italian language is the official tongue of over 70 million people worldwide. The evolution of Italian has been marked by a complex integration of local dialects. The official Italian language is derived in part from a Tuscan dialect. However, since the country evolved as a network of independent city states, regional dialects persist to this day. These dialects are generally mutually intelligible–however, cultural and idiomatic differences are distinct.
The German language has an interesting and well-documented pedigree. The language can trace its roots to a proto-German ancestor, also the antecedent of the Scandinavian languages, English, French, and Dutch. This proto-German language in turn can trace its origins back even further to an Indo-European ancestor from which came many of the languages now common in the Middle East and Europe.
The French language is one of the so-called Romance languages, originally constituted from Latin. During the 1st century B.C., Julius Caesar’s invading armies spread around Transalpine Gaul (modern-day France). As the dialects spoken in Gaul diverged from classic Latin, scholars eventually needed a way to codify and structure the new language. During France’s expansionist period centuries later, French soldiers and cultural emissaries brought their language to people across the world. Today, French serves as the official language of more than 20 countries on four continents, and there are more than 280 million speakers across the globe.
Thanks to the advent of advanced printing technologies and sophisticated computer software, more and more companies are employing desktop publishing (DTP) to meet client needs. At its essence, desktop publishing involves using a personal computer to produce documents for mass printing and production. For example, you can employ Adobe InDesign or Quark XPress to lay out a company newsletter, which you can then photocopy for distribution. Companies can create documents and print quality demos in-house and save on long-term publishing costs.
Chinese is one of the most complex and elusive languages spoken in the world today. There are five major dialect groups and dozens of minor ones, some of which are almost mutually unintelligible. Moreover, there are two distinct Chinese alphabets, over 40,000 commonly used characters, and idiomatic and parochial expressions which non-native speakers may never hear. All told, there are over one billion native Chinese speakers in the country of China alone–and millions more worldwide.
