History of the Ukrainian language

There are many different theories on how Ukrainian may have developed. Until approx. the 14th century, all Eastern Slavic peoples used a common written language (Old Eastern Slavonic), which was the foundation for many other languages. One of these languages was Ruthenian, which was used in the regions of present-day Ukraine and Belarus from the 15th to the 18th century. Until the 18th century, Church Slavonic was the common written language but was then superseded by Ukrainian, which had its origins in the language commonly used.

In 1918, Ukrainian became the official language in the Ukrainian People’s Republic and later in the Ukrainian Soviet Republic as well. Since Russian was the dominating language in the Ukraine during the Soviet Regime, there are still many Russian influences in the Ukrainian language. Since Ukraine became independent in 1991, Ukrainian is the only official language within the country. Yet, Russian still plays a significant role as many Russians live in the Ukraine territory and Russian is the mother tongue of many Ukrainians. This is one of the reasons why language is often also a political topic in the Ukraine.

Grammar of the Ukrainian language

The Ukrainian language uses the Cyrillic alphabet and its grammar has many similarities to the other Slavic languages. Ukrainian also has only three tenses (past, present and future) but unlike German, it differs between the completed and uncompleted aspect. Although German and Ukrainian have multiple cases, there are only four in German while Ukrainian comprises seven. And in contrast to German, the Ukrainian language does not have any articles. Both languages, however, know two numbers and three genera.

Due to the special grammatical features of the Ukraine language, it is advisable to entrust the translation of your specialist texts or interpretation to a native speaker or very experienced language expert. Therefore, at AP Fachübersetzungen we work exclusively with certified and experienced specialist Ukrainian translators and interpreters and can thus guarantee the high quality and accuracy of your Ukrainian translation. Our interpreting and translation agency exclusively entrusts certified, publicly appointed and sworn translators with certified translations for Ukrainian.
