As the EU requires life science products to be translated into all of the official languages of member states such as Slovakia, high-quality, medical Slovak translations are an increasingly essential asset for companies seeking Central European market access. Spoken by over 5 million people worldwide and also referred to as Slovakian, Slovak is related closely to Czech, although the two languages have recently started to drift apart since the split of Czechoslovakia. While Slovakia’s pharmaceutical market is relatively small, it shows notable potential for new investors now discovering the need for Slovak language communication solutions. As more pharmaceutical companies recruit for and conduct Slovakia-based clinical trials, 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 Slovak language require advanced AI translation technology combined with native, in-country linguists for a quick turnaround time.
Translating Slovak Dialects with Accuracy and Nuance
There are three main dialectical groups of Slovakian, which are separated geographically by mountainous terrain divides. The Western Slovak dialects resemble the Moravian dialects of the Czech language. However, besides the Eastern Slovak dialects and the Bohemian Czech dialect, all Slovak and Czech dialect variations are mutually intelligible. Overall, Slovak has remained comparatively conservative, has retained its unique long syllabic l and r sounds, and did not develop Czech’s distinct ř sound. 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. Whether you are seeking Slovak-to-English translations or English-to-Slovak translations, it is essential to ensure the cultural appropriateness and local sophistication of every project entering or expanding from Slovakia’s market.
