Persian Translations by Native Translators

The Persian language is spoken by just under eighty million people around the world. It is predominantly used in Iran, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan but also in Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Bahrain, and Iraq. The Persian language is one of the Indo-European languages. It is the most important Indo-European language in Western and Central Asia. We offer Persian translations from all languages and all subject areas.

History of the Persian Language

The Persian language evolved from Old Persian, the official language of the Achaemenid Empire.Old Persian texts in cuneiform script have survived on ancient stone tablets and remains of ancient buildings. The language is closely related to Sanskrit. It has very complex grammar, which, among other things, contains seven cases. Middle Persian was spoken mostly in northern Afghanistan. It was grammatically simpler than Old Persian and served as the official language of the Sassanid Empire during the same time period. Middle Persian was written in Aramaic, which differentiated its script from the left-to-right cuneiform script of Old Persian. After the conquest of Persia by the Arabs, Middle Persian was lost. At the end of the first Millennium, New Persian emerged as the international standard language in Southwestern Asia and Central Asia. Its oldest written documents exist in Hebrew writing.

Written Persian

Since the Persian language has many dialects and vernaculars, the relationship between some of these dialects and the official Persian language is sometimes difficult to identify. The Persian language is also known as Farsi-Dari, where Farsi is the widely spoken Persian language and Dari is the New Persian literary language. Farsi and Tajik are almost identical. Many famous poets and scientists wrote in the Persian language. The Persian alphabet is a modified version of the Arabic alphabet which was expanded by four letters and slightly modified for use in Persian. The Persian-Arabic alphabet was initially introduced in in Iran in the middle of the first Millennium A.D. Similarly to the Arabic script, the Persian script reads from right to left. Some Central Asian languages, such as the Kazakh language, and Indian languages, such as Sindhi and Punjabi, also use the Persian alphabet. The Persian language contains many loanwords from Arabic. Recently, however, there has been evidence of loanwords from English, French, Russian, Turkish and Mongol. We are happy to take on the translation of your texts from Persian!
