Localizing taking into accounts differences in the Hispanic Community
The Spanish language is not a uniform language. It varies significantly from country to country and even from region to region. For example, the Spanish spoken in Spain is very different from the Spanish spoken in Mexico. Within the 21 nations where Spanish is spoken, there is a great deal of variation between countries. This can make learning the language quite challenging, but also very rewarding.
Hispanic people come from a wide range of countries, including Argentina, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Spain, and Uruguay. The majority of Hispanic people in the U.S. come from Mexico. The Spanish language is spoken by over 470 million people worldwide, making it the second most widely spoken language after Mandarin Chinese. It is the official language of Spain, Mexico, and 21 other countries in the world.
