The influences on Georgian
Since the fifth century, the Georgian language has had its own alphabet with 33 letters. Georgian makes particular use of loanwords from Greek, Latin, Persian, and Arabic, but Russian, Turkish, and English have started to increase their influences on the vocabulary of the Georgian language in recent years. Also, the Georgian language is the only one of the South Caucasian languages that possesses remarkable literature. Works of this kind were often written by the country’s kings and date back to the fifth century.
The grammar of the Georgian language is relatively complex. First of all, Georgian is an inflected language: case, number, and gender are represented within the corresponding word itself. Georgian has seven cases. The language does not make use of a grammatical gender and refrains from assigning articles to nouns. There are eleven different forms for speakers of the Georgian language to express something taking place in the present, past, future, or in a hypothetically possible point of time. The tense can be determined by the verb alone, but the subject and object have a corresponding change in Georgian, as well. The plural form is made by attaching the suffix "-eb" to the stem of the noun. Our native speaking translators are familiar with all of these linguistic peculiarities. They have grown up with the language and possess the necessary language instincts to adequately translate your texts. From business-related to private documents, we translate every text with perfect quality. See for yourself and send us your text by email or with the request form.
