English to Tagalog Translation
As a typical Austronesian language, Tagalog is widely spoken as a first language by over a quarter of the Philippine population, the ethnic Tagalog people and as a second language by the mass of the Filipinos. Although the Philipines is not as popular a destination for foreign investment as its regional peers in the ASEAN such as Malaysia and Indoneisa, some investors prioritize the Philippines over other countries for its strategic location, a young and growing workforce, and a comparatively low cost of living. In recent years, the Philippine government has introduced measures to enhance the investment climate, aiming to bring in more foreign capital.
There are as much as 195 languages spoken within the Philippine borders. When navigating this linguistically diverse country, it’s of paramount importance to use the exact variety of Filipino translation your target audience is native to, ensuring effective cross-cultural communication. Although Tagalog is closely related to other Philippine languages spoken throughout the region, their vocabulary, pronunciation, and grammar could vary. For example, Tagalog has many loanwords borrowed from English and Spanish while other Filipino languages have more loanwords from languages like Malay, Arabic, and Chinese.

As a dynamic language, Tagalog is evolving non-stop, which requires the translator to keep up with the latest usage of the Tagalog language.

Getting accurate translations from Tagalog to English is not as simple as it appears to be. It could sometimes pose challenges to even the most seasoned Tagalog language translator. Tagalog and English belongs to different language family, with the former a part of the Austronesian language and the latter a member of the Indo-European language family. Compared to English, Tagalog is more closely related to Indonesian, Malay, and Hawaiian. Unlike English and many other global languages that follows a subject-verb-object sentence structure, Tagalog adheres to a verb-subject-object word order. This means that the verb in a sentence usually comes before the subject which is followed by the object. However, as a flexible language, Tagalog allows for different word orders depending on the context, such as moving the subject to the beginning of the sentence for emphasis. That’s why tagalog to English translation is quite challenging and requires the expertise of a seasoned Tagalog language translator with native-level proficiency in both languages to ensure the essence of the source text is retained and the grammatical norms of the target language are followed.
Wordspath’s experienced Tagalog to English translators leverage their linguistic prowess and cultural sensitivity to deliver impeccable translations from Tagalog to English, ensuring the translation captures and faithfully conveys the essence of the original message.

Language Facts About Tagalog
There are approximately 35.2 million native Tagalog speakers worldwide. Outside the Philippine borders, US is home to the largest number of Tagalog speakers with a whopping 1.3 million people speaking it as a first language. This was the result of the immigration of many Filipinos to the US in the 1920s as unskilled labor, to better support their families back in the Philippines. Since the country gained independence from the United States in 1946, the number of Filipino American had expotentially growed for a quite a while.
A Glimpse into the Tagalog History
Derived from the term tagá-ilog, which means “river dweller”, the Northern Philippine languageTagalog’s origin remain unknown. It is believed to be an Austronesian language spoken by the Malayo-Polynesian people. Tagalog takes form around 900CE in the present-day Philippines’ largest island named Luzon.
With the influx of traders and travelers from neighboring regions, Tagalog absorbed influences from other languages, such as Malay, Sanskrit, and Chinese, enriching its vocabulary and grammatical structures.
Upon the arrival of Spanish colonizers in 1521, Catholicism and the Latin alphabet were introduced to facilitate Tagalog’s evolution. The new script was adapted to Tagalog’s unique rhythms and sounds but its essence was retained.
The Philippines is divided into many ethnic groups with millions of speakers native to 8 major languages and 170 dialects, in need of a unifying language. The Tagalog language is spoken by natives of Central Luzon where Manila, the capital city of the Philippines is located. When the 1935 constitution was drafted, Tagalog naturally gained its edge in historical, social, and political aspects and became the basis for the evolution and adoption of the national language of the Philippines, which was designated as Wikang Pambansâ (“National Language”). The language was renamed Pilipino in 1959 and remained the name under the 1973 constitution. Since the 1987 constitution, it has been holding official status as Filipino together with English.
The Linguistic Twins: Tagalog and Filipino
Although used interchangeably, Filipino and Tagalog are considered to be two distinct yet interconnected linguistic entities. While Filipino is the official and national language of the Philippines, Tagalog emerged long before Filipino’s existence. In fact, Tagalog is the foundation of Filipino.
In such a linguistically diverse country like the Philippines, it makes sense for the government to designate a national language for effective communication countrywide. Given the historical, social, and political concerns, Tagalog defeated other Philippine languages and become the proposed national language, which has caused silent uproar and even objection from many non-Tagalog speakers in the country.
To strike the right balance between recognizing Tagalog’s official status and considering the feelings of non-Tagalog speaking ethnic groups, a compromise solution came into being by not refering to Tagalog as the national language. And voila, the result is the emergence of Filipino.
Differences Between Tagalog and Filipino
Tagalog and Filipino are basically the same in terms of grammatical structure, pronouns, demonstrative pronouns, verbal affixes, and linkers. Even though the two languages have a lot in common, distinctions do exist in their alphabets, words, and usage.
Filipino shares up to 80-90% similarity with Tagalog, with the rest being the fusion of words from Spanish, English, and other Philippine languages. Generally speaking, Filipino is more of the Tagalog language 2.0.
Unlike Tagalog which has 20 letters in its alphabet, Filipino features 28 letters in the alphabet, including 20 letters from Tagalog and 8 additional letters from Western languages.
Tagalog consists of native words and loanwords from Spanish, while Filipino also comprises words from other Philippine languages, as an approach to embrace non-Tagalog speakers.
As for usage, Tagalog is used for fomal settings, education, and government, etc, whilst Filipino is more frequently used in everyday conversations and popular culture.

A8: When accuracy doesn’t matter to you in contexts like getting a general idea of a foreign text/passage or figuring out questions like “what my name is in Tagalog”, translation APPs can be an ideal tool. Some of the best APPs for English to Tagalog translation include Google Translate, Microsoft Translator, and iTranslate. These apps come with amazing features such as text translation, voice translation, and dictionary lookup. However, the accuracy is questionable and could vary with different subject matters. It’s recommended to try different apps and choose the one that best suits your specific translation needs. But think twice before using such APPs to translate important/highly technical documents.
A9: While Google Translate can generate translations from English to Tagalog or vice versa instantly and provide a basic understanding, you need to bear in mind that the results may not always be accurate or contextually appropriate. Google Translate, or any machine translation tool in the matter, is ideal for translating simple phrases or getting a general idea. But when aiming for professional and accurate translations, it’s best to avoid using these machine-powered tools and work with experienced human translators who can understand the linguistic and cultural nuances between both languages and provide high-quality translations with a tailored personal touch.
