Farsi (or Persian), which belongs to the Indo-European languages, is an official language in Iran, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan. It is also spoken in large parts of Uzbekistan. But millions of Farsi speakers can also be found elsewhere; especially in Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, the United States, Canada, Germany, and Sweden. Farsi is related to Dari and Tajiki, which are spoken in the same regions. Farsi is one of the oldest documented written languages with documents that date back to the 6th century B.C. Farsi’s vocabulary has been strongly influenced by Arabic over the centuries. In recent years, there has been a movement that promotes more independent words.
There is still some confusion regarding the name ‘Farsi’. This is due to the fact that Persian-speaking immigrants in the Netherlands call their language Farsi. The Academy of Persian Language and Literature in Tehran prefers the term ‘Persian’ because of its important historical and cultural connotation. Just as the term ‘Arabic’ is used as an umbrella language concept from Morocco to Qatar, the Academy wants to achieve the same with the term ‘Persian’ for Iran, Tajikistan, and Afghanistan.
We like to work with so-called in-country translators; translators who live and work in their country of origin and have an optimal feel for their language and culture. Because culture is also an essential part of the way people express themselves. For the translator, this means that he must find the right words and tone to properly address the target audience. This is a job for someone who has their language and culture all around them on a daily basis.
In order to give you maximum quality guarantees in advance, we have obtained the highest achievable European quality standards for translation agencies: ISO 9001 and ISO 17100.
