Professional Direct Latvian Transcription and Translation Service from Audio or Video Files

We can provide a direct translation from any Latvian audio or video file into English.

The linguist will listen to the Latvian speech on the audio or video file and will provide a direct written translation into English much in the same way as an interpreter would interpret what he or she hears verbally.

Our Latvian translators and transcriptionists can include speaker labels and time codes, depending on your requirement.

The quality and speed of output will depend on the clarity of the source media file, so if you’re starting from scratch, please obtain the best quality recording possible.

WHILE YOU’RE HERE... SOME QUITE INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT THE Latvian LANGUAGE

Latvian is spoken by roughly 1.3 million people primarily by the Latvian population in Latvia, where it is the official language. Latvian is not largely spoken outside of Latvia, however the Latvian people have migrated to other countries within the EU. Latvian language formed until 16th century on the basis of Latgalian accumulating Curonian, Semigallian and Selonian languages (all are Baltic languages). Latvian is one of two extant Baltic languages, a group of its own within the family of Indo-European languages. Both Latvian and particularly Lithuanian languages are considered to be the most archaic of still-spoken Indo-European languages. The closest ties they have are to Slavic and Germanic families.

Latvian SAMPLE TEXT

Visi cilvēki piedzimst brīvi un vienlīdzīgi savā pašcieņā un tiesībās. Viņi ir apveltīti ar saprātu un sirdsapziņu, un viņiem jāizturas citam pret citu brālības garā.
