Italian Translation Into English Of The Seasons

I have a great love for all things Italian. I work in a translation agency dealing with Italian English language combination projects, I am getting fat on Italian food and I am even marrying a fantastic Italian girl, who is also a translator.

So I hope to bring to you in this article not only an Italian English translation of the text. But also, a feel of the Italian culture and way of life.

Italian Names for the Seasons – la primavera, l’estate, l’autunno, l’inverno
The English Translations are:

Seasons
la primavera—Spring
l’estate—Summer
l’autunno—Autumn
l’inverno—Winter

In Italian the names of seasons (i stagioni) are not capitalized.

Now lets add some culture and lifestyle to this translation;

la primavera—Spring

The scent of flowers arrives in your house. The days start to get longer. The fog in Bolgna will start to decrease and you will be less neccessary to have extra clothes when you walk (caminare) in the evening to get an icecream (gelato).

Already, the whole of Italy is getting ready for the summer. In the south they may already be getting on the beach some weekends.

Another funny side I have discovered is that some of the Italians I know (boys and girls) are already planning on getting rid of their girlfriends / boyfriends so that they won’t be restricted from the pleasures of summer.

When I think of an English Spring I remember a saying my mother as always said ‘March comes in like a lamb and goes out like a lion’ Meaning it will start nice, but end with the roar of storms.

l’estate—Summer

In the summer the Italians are all heading for the beach. Italy is long and narrow looking like a ladies boot. As such, you are genereally no more then 45 minutes from the beach.

Most Italian have a selection of beaches they use. The beach of the family, the beach where they meet their friends and the beach where they go to see and be seen!

l’autunno—Autumn

Autumn is generally a little depressing in most countries. The days are becoming shorter and the days on the beach are less and less inviting.

However, Italians love to party and the harvests create a cause for many regional celebrations. So I actually love this Italian season. Its cooler so you get to catch up on what you have put off through the heat of summer.

l’inverno—Winter

Well……again Italy is long and narrow and shaped like a boot as it has been formed by the merging of tetonic plates. This has resulted in a country that has mountains down its middle.

So the Italians, like many English, are generally off to the ski slopes. But unlike the English most Italians are only an hour from the slopes so they are able to go skiing most weekends.

I do hope you have enjoyed my article on the Italian seasons and the translation provided.

    What is the best hardback Italian to English dictionary?
    I will be using it to help me in translating 18th-century Italian libretti, so it needs to include archaic/poetic Italian.

    Does anyone know a good online Italian-English Dictionary that speaks the words you’ve spelt out?
    I’m learning Italian from a book (that doesn’t come with audio) and would like to know where I can find an online dictionary that speaks the words so I know how to pronounce them. Thank you!

    What’s the best English-Italian/Italian-English dictionary book or electronic dictionary around?
    I’m wondering what’d be the best english-italian/italian-english dictionary, book or electronic, whatever, to use before my high school trip to Rome, Italy in the future. The other kind of dictionaries like these I’m looking for is:

    English-French/French-English
    &
    English-Japanese/Japanese-English.

    Which are the languages I want to learn.

    Try the Collins-Sansoni Italian dictionary which is bigger and better than simply the Collins one.

    I doubt you can find free “off-lines” dictionaries; in any case a good one is the Oxford Paravia Italian dictionary:
    http://www.amazon.com/Oxford-Paravia-Italian-Dictionary-Cristina-Bareggi/dp/0198604378

    otherwise if you register, you can also get an on-line version:
