Translating "styles"

Hello there,

First of all, Id like to say that this is my second post here (introduction beeing the first), and that my knowledge of Aikido is... zero! Although Ive always been fascinated by Aikido (and not by other martial arts), only now, at 37 years of age, I have decided that it was time to dive deeply into it.
But like all "newbees" in any subject given to "passions", there is a lot of information out there that can lead you into some false perspectives, or generally wrong I ask you:

How many diferent "styles" (if one can call them "styles") or variations are there in Aikido?
What are the main diferences between them?
Can you "translate" them, so that a guy who never practiced it before can get a clear picture of its diferences?

Thanking you in advance,
