Language Inc. - Specialists in translating, proofreading, editing and copywriting.



An Indo-Aryan language from the Indo-European language family, Marathi is spoken by approximately 73 million people (2007) and is number nineteen on the list of most spoken languages in the world.  In addition to being the official language of Maharashtra, Marathi is also one of the 23 official languages of India and enjoys “Scheduled Language” status in the Constitution of India.

Besides being the official language in Maharashtra, Marathi is spoken to differing degrees in many places, namely Goa, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Dadra and Nagar Haveli, Daman and Diu, as well as Maharashtrian expatriates in Israel and Mauritius.


Indo-Aryan language academics differentiate between 42 various dialects of spoken Marathi, with the chief dialects being Jhadi Boli, Southern Indian Marathi, and Varhadi, and Standard Marathi being the vernacular favoured by scholars and the print media.  Notwithstanding the vast number of dialects, there exists a high degree of clarity amongst the different vernaculars as the key distinction lies in the accent placement and pronunciation of words.

While Marathi is influenced by many other languages and dialects such as Sanskrit, Prakrit, Maharashti, Apabhramśa, Persian, Arabic, English, and some Portuguese, there exist many organisations with the intention of regulating, promoting, and enriching the Marathi language by replacing loanwords with original Marathi counterparts.

An increasing movement amid Marathi speaking parents at all community levels in large metropolitan areas is to send their children to English schools.  Some individuals are anxious this could lead to the decline of the Marathi language, although these fears seem to be unsubstantiated.  Recently many youngsters are finding it fashionable to revive the old Modi alphabet of Marathi, which was replaced in 1950 by the Marathi version of Devanagari script, Balbodh.

Which World Languages Should I Be Aware of?

With the advent of the digital age it is clear that international trade has changed in many years, and these days businesses of all kinds are routinely dealing with many foreign clients. The fact is that there are some languages that are more prevalent in commerce than others. So which should you be spending your money on? The facts may surprise you! For example, did you know that Portuguese ranks among the top ten most used languages in business? This is largely down to the growth in industrial terms of Brazil, which now has one of the most powerful economies worldwide.

It may be less of a surprise to find Japanese and Mandarin Chinese among the top ranking, as these two eastern giants are well-established in terms of the world economy, but Russian may be a language you have not considered. Russia is a fast-growing market for exports, and should not be overlooked. At Language Inc. we can help you with quality assured translation and language services in all the above languages – as well as many more of the most commonly used.

Cantonese – the official language of Hong Kong – is another important language that Language Inc. offers proficiency in, plus we can also help you with languages in the most important of European markets including GermanFrench and – often overlooked – Polish. Poland is a country with a healthy economy and a strong demand for imported goods. We cannot cover all the languages you need, but rest assured that at Language Inc. we provide you with the resources to enable you to communicate ably and accurately in most of the world languages. Feel free to get in touch with us now to discuss your requirements in detail and we will be happy to help.
