A short history of the Slovak language
Slovak is very similar to – and mutually intelligible with – Czech, although the two languages developed separately for a long period. Slovak also shares common features with both South Slavic and East Slavic languages, so although it is classified as West Slavic, it actually occupies a more central position within the Slavic language group.
There was an intense period of development of the Slovak language during the 10th to 12th centuries, before it stabilised between the 13th and 15th centuries. However, there was no standard Slovak literary language until the end of the 18th century. Before this Czech was used as the literary language of educated Slovakians, as well as cultural West Slovak, cultural Central Slovak and cultural East Slovak. Eventually a standard version based on Central Slovak caught on, and formed the basis of the literary version used today.
Slovak has been the official language of the Slovak Republic since it became an independent state in 1993.
The language also has official status in the Serbian region of Vojvodina, and is recognised as a minority language in the Czech Republic, Hungary and Ukraine.
How many people speak Slovak as their first language?
It is estimated that around six million people speak Slovak worldwide, most of whom live in the Slovak Republic. There are significant Slovak-speaking communities in the United States and the Czech Republic.
Did you know…
- Slovak is sometimes called the ‘Esperanto’ of Slavic languages, because of its central position within the group as the most comprehensible language for speakers of other Slavic languages.
- While this is true for standard Slovak, it doesn’t always follow for Slovak dialects, which can be much more difficult for others to understand – particularly the eastern varieties.
Slovakia has a high income economy, with the highest GDP of the V4 countries (Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary). If the V4 countries were counted as a single nation, they would rank as the seventh largest economy in Europe and the 14th largest in the world.
Slovakia joined the European Union in 2004 and adopted the euro in 2009.

The team at Matinée are fantastic to work with. They are really communicative, helpful and turned around the work as quickly as possible. I have no complaints at all and we will definitely be getting back in contact when we next need subtitles.

I use Matinee a lot for subtitling projects
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.
