Polish: translations

Who speaks Polish?

Polish is part of the Indo-European language family, specifically the West Slavic language group. It is used by almost 40 million people.

Polish is the official language of Poland only. Polish is one of the official languages of the European Union. Outside of Poland, we communicate in Polish in immigrant communities called Polonia. Many Poles can be found in the United States, Canada, Germany, Norway, Great Britain, Ireland, Sweden, France, the Czech Republic, Brazil, Belarus, Argentina and even Australia.

History of the Polish language

The oldest sentence in the Polish language is: Day, ut ia pobrusa, ti poziwai and comes from the Book of Henryk. In 1285 it was determined that this language be used together with Latin in monastic schools. Polish originated from the Proto-Slavic language. The first document on Polish orthography was written in about 1455 by the Polish linguist and grammarian Jakub Parkoszowicz, who, like Jan Hus, set himself the task of using the Latin alphabet to designate the written sounds of the Polish language. We can point to 4 stages of the development of the Polish language: Old Polish – between the earliest times and the beginning of the 16th century, Middle Polish – from the 16th century to the end of the 18th century, New Polish – until 1930, Modern Polish – from 1930 until today. Modern Polish originated from Polish dialects. Standard/Cultural Polish is largely based on Mazovian dialects.

Using Polish in business

Polish is mainly used in Poland. All companies wishing to do business there should insist on linguistic correctness and take care of the quality of materials presented to stakeholders. This proves professionalism and a proper approach to consumers, which indirectly translates into success on the market.
