A short history of the Bulgarian language
Bulgarian belongs to the Southern Slavic branch of the Indo-European language family. It is closely related to (and mutually intelligible with) Macedonian, and together the two languages make up the East South Slavic language group.
The development of Bulgarian is usually grouped into three periods:
- Old Bulgarian (9th to 11th century) – also referred to as Old Church Slavonic – during which the Cyrillic alphabet was created and a literary and liturgical form of the southern dialect of Common Slavic was developed (used to translate the Bible into Slavic).
- Middle Bulgarian (12th to 15th century) – during which the language continued to evolve, and was used as the official administration language of the Second Bulgarian Empire. The Turkish conquest of Bulgaria in 1396 slowed development of the language down for several centuries.
- Modern Bulgarian (16th century onwards) – during which a standard written form of the language was established (after Bulgaria gained independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1878). Along the way, Bulgarian had picked up loanwords from Greek, Turkish, Russian, French and German.
Bulgarian is the official language of the Republic of Bulgaria. It is also recognised as an official minority language in Serbia, Romania, Ukraine and Moldova.
How many people speak Bulgarian as their first language?
It is estimated that over 10 million people speak Bulgarian as their first language, most of whom live in Bulgaria.
Did you know…
- When Bulgaria acceded to the European Union in 2007, the Cyrillic alphabet became the Union’s third official alphabet, along with the Latin and Greek alphabets.
- There are two main varieties of Bulgarian – the Eastern dialects (known as ‘mek govor’, or ‘soft speech’) and the Western dialects (‘tvurd govor’ – ‘hard speech’). Standard Bulgarian is based on the Eastern dialects.
- Visitors to Bulgaria should at the very least learn the Bulgarian for yes (da) and no (ne) to avoid potential confusion, as Bulgarians shake their heads when they mean ‘yes’ and nod when they mean ‘no’.
The Bulgarian economy
Like other former Soviet satellites, Bulgaria found the transition to democracy and a market economy slow and difficult, although growth has speeded up in recent years.
Key industries include energy, mining, metallurgy, machine building, agriculture and tourism. Bulgaria joined the European Union in 2007.

Friendly and efficient service
The speed of response, and friendly, efficient service from all staff was quite exceptional. Matinee particularly stands out by putting the customer’s needs first, even when the job is relatively small and a bit of a technical challenge. I would strongly recommend Matinee for any subtitling work.
