The Latvian language (sometimes referred to as Lettish) is the official state language of Latvia. Spoken by around 1.5 million people in Latvia, it is classified as a Baltic language and is closely related to Lithuanian.
Following its accession to the European Union in 2004, Latvia had the fastest developing economy in Europe until the middle of 2008.
Latvia proceeded with wide scale economic reforms following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the centrally planned Soviet system was replaced with a structure based on free-market principles.
The main industries in Latvia include automotive manufacture, electronic goods, pharmaceuticals, processed foods and textiles, although it is dependent on imported energy and raw materials.
Translating your documents into Latvian is an efficient way of communicating with your Latvian speaking markets. A growing number of UK businesses are realising that, in order to sell their products and services overseas, they need to overcome the language barrier, as only a small percentage of the world's population speaks English.
