A short history of the Marathi language
Marathi, like most of the Indo-Aryan languages, has its roots in Sanskrit, specifically the Maharashtri Prakit language which evolved from Sanskrit. There were two other Prakit languages – Saurseni and Magadhi.
Maharashtri Prakit was an official language of the Satavahana Empire, and was widely used in western and southern India until around the 9th century. Later it evolved into Maharashtri Apabhramsha, and this was the basis for modern-day Marathi.
The first written examples of the language appeared in the 11th century, and from the 13th century to the mid-20th century it was written using the Modi alphabet. Today it is written using the Devanāgarī alphabet.
Marathi is one of India’s 22 official languages, and the official language of the state of Maharashtra. It is also co-official in the union territories of Daman and Diu, and Dadra and Nagar Haveli. It is widely spoken in neighbouring states, particularly Goa.
How many people speak Marathi as their first language?
It is estimated that there are approximately 90 million Marathi-speakers worldwide, making it the fourth most spoken language in India and the 15th most spoken language in the world.
There are significant Marathi-speaking communities in Israel and Mauritius.
Did you know…
- The major Marathi dialects are Standard Marathi and Warhadi Marathi, but there are several other sub-dialects. These include Ahirani (spoken in West Khandesh), Khandeshi (spoken in East Khandesh), Varhadi (spoken in the Vidarbha region) and Malvani (spoken in the Malvan region).
- The Devanāgarī alphabet used to write Marathi differs slightly from the Devanāgarī alphabets used to write Hindi and other languages. It is called Balbodh and has a couple of extra letters – 52 in total (16 vowels an 36 consonants). Marathi is written from left to right, and uses Western punctuation.
India’s economy is the tenth largest in the world by nominal GDP and the third largest by PPP. India is the 19th largest exporter and the 10th largest importer in the world.
Due to its large population there is still a lot of poverty in the country, despite its economic success. Although India has a growing high-tech sector, around half of the population is employed in agriculture (plus forestry, logging and fishing).
Around 22% of the population works in industry (which accounts for 26% of the GDP), and 27% in the service sector. Over 20 million people work in textile manufacturing.
India was one of the founding members of the World Trade Organisation’s precursor, and is a member of the G20 and BRICS (the association of five major emerging economies – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa).

I use Matinee for a lot of subtitling projects and they never fail to meet the deadlines. Great customer service and fast responses. Well done to the entire team.

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.
