Italian isn’t the only language spoken in Italy. In fact, outsiders may be surprised to learn that Italy is one of the most linguistically diverse countries in Europe, with a myriad of languages that developed from Latin alongside Italian spoken all across the country. Often erroneously considered dialects of Italian, these languages do exhibit a lot of similarities to their dominant sister language, but they’re also unique and sometimes unintelligible to Italian speakers. One of these languages is Emilian-Romagnol, spoken mostly in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy.
Of course, languages like Emilian-Romagnol aren’t usually covered by translation agencies. Most only offer Italian translation and don’t bother with Italy’s regional minority languages. But at TranslationServices.com, we care about the vitality of these languages. To help Emilian-Romagnol thrive, we’ve built a team of expert Emilian-Romagnol translators.

Discover the Italian language of Emilian-Romagnol
Emilian-Romagnol, which is typically divided into separate Emilian and Romagnol dialects, is predominantly spoken in the Emilian-Romagna region of Northern Italy, as well as the neighboring Central Italian region of Marche and the microstate of San Marino. Altogether, the language is estimated to have roughly 2 million speakers, and the failure of older generations to pass the language on to youth has resulted in Emilian-Romagnol’s classification as “endangered.” Still, there are estimated to be some monolingual Emilian-Romagnol speakers left.
The grammar of Emilian-Romagnol is similar to that of Italian, but certainly not identical. Like Italian, the language divides nouns into masculine and feminine noun classes, although the categorization may differ from Italian. Unlike in Italian, nouns may end in a consonant. Also, certain nouns do not change in the plural, perhaps an influence from French, whose plural “s” is rarely pronounced. Interestingly, Emilian-Romagnol can look more like a Slavic language than an Italic language because of its heavy use of diacritics not found in most other Romance languages.
Clearly, Emilian-Romagnol is a unique language separate from Standard Italian. We’re proud to offer the speakers of Emilian-Romagnol reliable, high-quality translation services for their every translation need.
