Why does your business need Latvian translations?

One of the two remaining Baltic languages in existence (along with Lithuanian), Latvian is spoken as a first language by 56% of the country’s population. However, this number is rising, and as more people embrace it, the language has begun to evolve from its roots as one of the oldest European languages.

This evolution has seen Latvian split into three distinct dialects which have their roots in different areas of the country. Middle Latvian is most commonly used in the centre and south west, Upper Latvian is spoken in the east of the country, while Livonian is most often spoken in the west of Latvia. Even within these dialects, there are other set nuances, and although speakers of each dialect can generally comprehend each other without issue, hiring a Latvian translator who can parse the differences and cater to a specific dialect is crucial.

FAQs

Is Latvian the same as Russian?

Latvian is not the same language as Russian. Grammar, phonology and vocabulary differ significantly between the two languages. For instance, modern Russian uses three tenses, while modern Latvian uses six tenses. It is sometimes easy for Russians to pick up Latvian words through similarities in spelling, but these are usually words borrowed from a third language.

How many Latvian dialects are there?

The Latvian language has three main dialects. The Livonian dialect is widespread in western Latvia, while the Middle dialect is spoken mostly in the east of the country. Upper Latvian is most common in central and southwestern Latvia. London Translations are on hand to provide translations in any of these dialects.
