Latin and Cyrillic

In the Serbian language, both the Latin and Cyrillic alphabets are used. When compared, Serbian is so closely related to Bosnian and Croatian in terms of vocabulary and pronunciation that Serbs, Bosnians, and Croatians are able to understand each other with no issues. Regarding Serbian pronunciation, there are two known modern variants. One of these is Ikavian which is mostly spoken in the Serbian states and to a lesser extent in Montenegro, Croatia, and Bosnia. The second pronunciation variant, Ikavian, has no written language of its own and is currently in danger of extinction as it is no longer spoken by young Serbs. In Serbia both Latin and Cyrillic letters are used for writing. Use of the Latin or Cyrillic alphabet is dependent upon the geographical region and the kind of text. The Serbian Constitution calls for the Cyrillic alphabet to be in everyday, official use. Writing is mostly done with Cyrillic letters in Central Serbia and Montenegro as well. People in Serbia mostly use the Cyrillic script to bring traditional and religious texts to paper while modern texts are usually written in Latin. Some newspapers will even have side by side text in Cyrillic and Latin letters. The Serbian alphabet in Cyrillic letters differs from the Russian alphabet in that various characteristics have been added over the course of many years in order to best adapt to the unique aspects of the Serbian language. The Serbian Cyrillic alphabet consists of thirty letters. There are many special characters in the Cyrillic written language of the Serbs that are not found in Russian. Our native tongue translators naturally are familiar with the unique aspects of the Serbian language and can translate your document reliably and with pinpoint accuracy. In addition to their academic training, our translators also possess relevant expertise in various subject areas. Get into contact with us and see what we can do.

Tonal language

The Serbian language is a tonal language. Differences in tones of syllables within a word cause its meaning to change. In this respect, the Serbian language is similar to the Chinese language which is characterized by a similar tonality. Regarding Serbian grammar, there are also parallels to Russian and Bulgarian. Serbian boasts free word order for individual elements within a sentence. These elements are distributed throughout the sentence. The word order within sentences is often subject, predicate, object. By emphasizing the same sentence in a different way, it is possible for the sentence to take on an entirely different meaning.
