Bulgarian Translation Services
Business Language Services specialises in Bulgarian translation (both English to Bulgarian translation and Bulgarian to English translation). We have a broad network of highly experienced, qualified professional Bulgarian translators, who only translate into their mother tongue. What’s more, all our Bulgarian translations are proofread by a second, independent linguist. BLS has an extensive database of Bulgarian interpreters, selected according to their expertise, specialist knowledge, friendly attitude and professional reliability. BLS also works with some of the best Bulgarian language tutors, enabling us to offer you tailor-made courses to match your precise needs and suit your ongoing work commitments.
The Bulgarian Language
Bulgarian (Български, Balgarski) is a Slavic language, but has many characteristics that set it apart from other Slavic languages (such as Russian, Czech and Polish). There are an estimated 10 million speakers of the language, which is very similar to Macedonian. The majority of speakers are concentrated in Bulgaria, but it is a recognised minority language in Serbia, the Ukraine and Romania, and there are significant communities of speakers in Greece, Turkey and Albania.
Bulgarians shake their heads for ‘yes’ and nod for ‘no’, in contrast with typical Western gestures, though this practice is increasingly rare among the younger generations.
