Caesar style consists in short and clear periods, using mostly coordinate sentences (parataxis), which makes him a pretty easy author to tranlsate . On the other hand Cicerone, being an orator, had to impress the jury with his speeches: that's why his periods are long and made of many subordinate sentences, linkers and figures of speech such as anaphoras, mataphors and antithesis.
