Professional Lithuanian Translations
Lithuanian is a Baltic language that is very closely related to the original form of the Indo-European language family. It’s spoken by about 3 million people worldwide, particularly in Lithuania and Belarus, but also in Ireland, Latvia, Poland, and the U.S.
If you have documents written in Lithuanian that you would like to have translated, you’re in good hands. We can translate your texts in any subject area into and from Lithuanian with speed and skill.
The history of Lithuanian
The oldest written records of Lithuanian date back to the early 16th century and were followed by a large number of translated religious texts. Near the end of the 19th century, printing Lithuanian books in Latin script was banned for about a 30-year period. At this time, only the Cyrillic alphabet could be used in printing. During the ban, individuals known as book carriers smuggled books from neighboring East Prussia.
Nowadays, Lithuanian is one of the official languages of the EU. The process of standardizing the Lithuanian language typically involved transliterating foreign loanwords and proper nouns into Lithuanian. For example, in Lithuanian, George Bush becomes “Džordžas Bušas,” and Harry Potter becomes “Haris Poteris.”
This language has a number of unique features that only a native-speaking translator can accurately translate.
High quality from professional translators
We know that a professional translation calls for translators who were raised with the language. Therefore, we entrust your documents exclusively with native-speaking translators. They know all of the unique aspects of Lithuanian and are able to translate your texts from any language into Lithuanian or vice versa with pinpoint precision.
We always take into account the subject area of your text. Along with lawyers, it’s not uncommon to have physicians and marketing experts translate for our agency.
For particularly sensitive content, we’re happy to sign a nondisclosure agreement.
