At ATT we offer professional Latvian translation services provided by experienced and specialized translators in various subjects. Our team of expert translators can accurately and professionally translate standard and specialized texts in their specific fields of expertise.
Our technical translation company ensures that all specialized translators are brought together and directed towards the right project. We also supervise the translation process and ensure that the completed translations are edited and revised by an editor.
We have been providing translations of various complexity levels since 2001, including many Latvian translation projects. Our experience includes translations from Russian into Latvian, English into Latvian, Latvian into German, English and other languages. We have established friendly relations with several translators and translation agencies in Riga and other Latvian cities, which allows us to translate nearly any language pair through Latvian.
We understand the importance of having a translator who has experience and knowledge in the specific field of the text being translated. Therefore, we only employ specialized translators with significant experience in their areas of expertise. For example, a music specialist would not be suitable for translating a charter or a non-disclosure agreement. In addition to proficiency in the Latvian language, our translators possess an extensive knowledge base of special terms used specifically in the project, ensuring accurate and precise translations.
We translate Latvian in the following areas:
Our company provides expert translation services for a variety of technical documents including manuals and instructions for delivery, assembly, commissioning, and operation of various machines and equipment, product specifications and technical descriptions, catalogues, datasheets, AutoCAD diagrams, machine and equipment manuals and reference materials, patents, standards, and other regulatory documents.

Interesting facts about the Latvian language
- Latvian is a Baltic language, which means it is part of the same language family as Lithuanian and Old Prussian. It is the only official language of Latvia and is spoken by around 1.3 million people.
- Latvian has a relatively large number of cases, with a total of seven: nominative, genitive, dative, accusative, instrumental, locative, and vocative.
- Latvian is known for its use of a unique diacritic called the “hacek,” which looks like a small hook or check mark and is placed over certain letters to indicate a change in pronunciation.
- Latvian has a rich literary tradition that dates back to the 16th century, with notable authors including Andrejs Pumpurs, Janis Rainis, and Imants Ziedonis.
- In 2016, Latvian was recognized as one of the official languages of the European Union. This means that all official EU documents must be translated into Latvian, and Latvian citizens have the right to use the language when communicating with EU institutions.
- The Latvian language has borrowed words from a variety of other languages, including German, Russian, Swedish, and English.
- Latvian is considered to be a relatively difficult language to learn, especially for speakers of languages with different grammatical structures, such as English or Chinese. However, with dedication and practice, it is certainly possible to become proficient in Latvian.
Some difficulties in translation into Latvian
As with any language, there can be difficulties when translating into Latvian. Here are a few examples:
- Declension: Latvian is an inflected language, which means that the endings of words change depending on their role in a sentence. This can make translation challenging, as the correct endings must be used for each word.
- Word order: While Latvian has a relatively flexible word order, it still follows certain patterns. Translators must ensure that the word order in the target language follows these patterns in order to ensure that the translation is grammatically correct.
- Idioms and cultural references: Latvian, like any language, has its own set of idioms and cultural references that may not have direct equivalents in other languages. Translators must be familiar with the culture and language in order to accurately convey these concepts in the target language.
- Technical terminology: Latvian, like many languages, has specific terminology used in technical fields such as engineering or medicine. Translators must have a good understanding of these terms in both the source and target languages in order to accurately translate technical documents.
- Historical and political references: Latvia has a complex history and political landscape, with many specific references and terms related to these topics. Translators must be aware of these historical and political nuances in order to accurately translate documents that reference them.
