About Bulgarian

  • Bulgarian, an Indo-European language of the South Slavic sub-group, is spoken by more than 9 million people worldwide – predominantly in Bulgaria and nearby Serbia, Romania, Moldova, Ukraine, Hungary, Albania, Greece and Turkey.
  • The neighbouring Macedonian language is extremely similar: indeed, there is unresolved political argument as to whether they are one and the same.
  • As one of the oldest countries in Europe, the Bulgarian language is based on very old forms of Slavic. Outside of Sofia, interpreters are often required for business meetings.
  • Bulgarian is more similar-sounding to Russian than English – and despite some of its letters looking Latin, they’re pronounced completely differently.
  • With a lexicon of some 200,000 words, the core Bulgarian vocabulary is traditionally Slavic, with some Greek, Latin and Turkish loans. More recently, the language has absorbed business-related terms and IT/technology language from English-speaking nations.

Bulgarian translation facts

  • There are two broad dialect groups: the Eastern and Western Dialects. Literary and official language tends to be based on the Eastern Dialects.
  • Bulgarian is the only EU member state which exclusively uses the Cyrillic alphabet, as opposed to the Latin one. Some letters have two different sounds.
  • Translators must be dexterous around Bulgarian verbs. There are up to 3,000 distinct verbs, in six grammatical groups (single/compound): person, number, aspect, tense, voice and mood.
  • Some Bulgarian words are impossible to translate because they describe entire lifestyles or complex conditions. For example, aylyak, one of the guilty pleasures of Bulgarians, is a very relaxed way of life (nothing is taken to heart and every moment is enjoyed to the full).
