Professional and Accurate Localization Solutions
Albanian is spoken by 7.5 million people and is an official language in Albania, Montenegro, Kosovo, and North Macedonia, making Albanian translations vital to access the Balkan market. In addition to its status as an official language, Albanian is a recognized minority language in Romania, Italy, Croatia, and Serbia. With the recent passing of the EU MDR, which requires all product labelling to be in official EU languages, Albanian serves as a crucial language for life science companies attempting to penetrate the European life science market. This importance is further highlighted by Albania’s almost complete reliance on imports for medical devices and pharmaceutical products.
Linguistic accuracy, in-depth cultural understanding, subject matter expertise, and localization best practices are all necessary components in ensuring success for any product or service entering the local market. Additionally, high-quality, consistent localization solutions for the Albanian language requires advanced AI translation technology combined with native, in-country linguists for a quick turnaround time.
The two most common dialect groups in Albania are Tosk (which is the basis for Standard Albanian), and Gheg. Although Gheg was the primary Albanian dialect at the start of the 15th Century, after Communist rule, Tosk replaced Gheg as the more favored Albanian dialect. Currently, Tosk is commonly spoken in southern Albania, while Gheg is spoken in northern Albania, and both are mutually intelligible. The various Tosk dialects and Gheg dialects are:
- Southern Gheg
- Northwest Gheg
- Central Gheg
- Northeast Gheg
- Italo-Albanian Tosk
- Southern Tosk
- Northern Tosk
- Arvanitic Tosk
With so many different cultural nuances that vary across regions, the importance of understanding local communities is critical for ensuring success in whatever product or service is entering the market.
