A short history of the Sanskrit language
Sanskrit is one of the most ancient languages in the world, along with Latin, Greek, Chinese and Arabic, and it is has a central place in the study of Indo-European languages. There are three main phases:
- Vedic Sanskrit – this is the oldest known form of Sanskrit, dating back to around 1500 BCE, and used to write the Vedas, an ancient collection of poems or hymns.
- Classical Sanskrit – the standard register of Sanskrit as set out by the grammarian Pānini in the 4th century BCE. Classical Sanskrit became a scholarly, liturgical and philosophical lingua franca that was studied throughout Greater India. As such, it influenced the development of most languages of the Indian subcontinent, notably in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Nepal.
- Contemporary Sanskrit – Sanskrit is still widely used in religious contexts, by Hindus and Buddhists. Vernacular use of the language is uncommon, but a movement to revive the spoken language is spreading.
Sanskrit is one of India’s 22 scheduled languages, and an official language of the Indian state of Uttarakhand.
How many people speak Sanskrit as their first language?
In India’s 2001 census, around 14,000 people identified Sanskrit as their native language. Attempts at reviving the language have been successful in a number of villages, particularly in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan.
Did you know…
- Sanskrit was designated as a ‘Classical Language in India’ by the Indian government in 2005. So far five other languages have been accorded this status – Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Oriya.
- It has been claimed that around 97% of all languages have been directly or indirectly influenced by Sanskrit.
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 work 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).

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.
