Professional Belarusian Translation Service
Belarusian belongs to the Eastern Slavonic languages group. It has around 7.5 million speakers who mainly reside in Belarus. Tomedes has been offering professional Belarusian translation services for quite some time and we have successfully worked on a large variety of projects in which our professional Belarusian translation providers have translated from English to Belarusian and Belarusian to English as well as a number of other languages combined with Belarusian.
- Belarusian language is very closely related to Ukrainian and Russian and most Belarusians are fluent in Russian along with their native Belarusian. In fact both serve as official languages of Belarus.
- The Belarusian script uses a modified form of the Cyrillic alphabet. It was confirmed in 1918, and comprises of 32 letters. In the past Belarusian has also been written with the Belarusian Latin alphabet, the Belarusian Arabic alphabet and intermittently with the Glagolitic script.
- The Standard form of Belarusian grammar as used at present was determined in 1959. In 1985, it underwent minor amendments. In the past Belarusian grammar had existed in a number of standardized forms. The modern standardized version was developed from an initial form developed by Branislaw Tarashkyevich sometime before 1918.
- Belarusian language has 45 to 54 phonemes: 39 to 48 consonants and 6 vowels. When one says 48 consonants it means that all consonant sounds are being referred. They include nine germinate consonants and rare sounds. When one mentions 39 consonants, the nine germinate consonants are excluded.
- Apart from the literary standard, Belarusian language has two main dialects. They are North-Eastern and South-Western dialects. The North-Eastern Belarusian dialect is mainly characterised by a "strong akanye" and "soft sounding R". While the South-Western Belarusian dialect includes a "moderate akanye" and "hard sounding R".
- Additionally there is the distinct West Palyesian dialect group and the intermediary Middle Belarusian dialect group. The West Palyesian dialect group is closer to Ukrainian language in a number of aspects.
