Spanish is one of the biggest languages in the world—in fact, it has even more native speakers than English, although English dramatically outperforms all other languages when it comes to the total number of speakers. But Spanish still comes in fourth for total number of speakers, behind English, Mandarin, and Hindi, making it one of the most influential languages in the world. Spanish is particularly prominent in Latin America, where the vast majority of countries speak the language. Of course, when a language is spoken in this many countries, different dialects will naturally materialize, and Spanish features a myriad of dialects indeed.
One prominent dialect of Spanish is Rioplatense, found around the Río de la Plata Basin of Argentina and Uruguay. Though Rioplatense is the most common name for the variant, you may also hear the anglicized River Plate Spanish, or Argentine Spanish, since Argentina’s population drastically overshadows that of Uruguay. Rioplatense isn’t spoken all throughout Argentina, but it is used in the capital, Buenos Aires, and other heavily populated areas throughout the country’s south and is strongly associated with Argentina. It’s an important Spanish dialect, but it still doesn’t get a lot of coverage from translation companies, and that’s what we here at TranslationServices.com are aiming to change with our Rioplatense Spanish translation services.

Let’s take a deeper look at Rioplatense Spanish.
Like other varieties of Latin American Spanish, Rioplatense was brought to the continent by Spanish colonists, and the dialect gradually evolved into a unique vernacular, picking up influences from the Amerindian languages indigenously spoken in the region. Most notably, Rioplatense has borrowed numerous words from prominent autochthonous languages Quechua and Guaraní, as well as a number of smaller languages.
It’s not just vocabulary, though—Rioplatense also distinguishes itself from other Spanish dialects through its grammar. It’s one of the most prominent Spanish dialects to use vos as its second-person singular pronoun, although this tendency can be found to varying degrees throughout Latin American Spanish dialects. The dialect also entirely replaces the second-person plural pronoun in Castilian Spanish, vosotros, with ustedes, which is the formal version in Castilian. Interestingly, Rioplatense uses ustedes with third-person plural verb forms. Further differences can be found in verbal tense usage, including a tendency to form the future tense with the auxiliary ir (“to go”) in informal language.
