About the Bulgarian Language
Bulgarian is spoken throughout Europe today, including Serbia, Macedonia, Ukraine, Greece and Turkey as well as areas of Canada and the United States. Bulgarian is the first Slavic language written on paper. At the end of the 18th century, the Russian version of the Cyrillic alphabet of Peter the Great was adapted to write Bulgarian as a result of the heavy influence of Russian literature. The language began to emerge in 19th-century documents and transitioned between a 28 and 44 letter alphabet before settling into the 32 letter one utilized today by Bulgarian’s 12 million speakers today.
The Bulgarian language has dozens of transitional Eastern and Western dialects, such as the Central Balkan dialect and Western Macedonian dialects. Our Bulgarian interpreters, translators and transcribers are certified and experienced in these dialects and able to provide you with accurate translations, transcriptions and interpretations.
