The Burmese language and translation

Burmese is spoken as a first language by 32 million people and belongs to the Southern Burmish branch of the Sino-Tibetan languages. It is the primary language of Myanmar – the country formerly known as Burma and is also spoken in Bangladesh, Malaysia, Thailand and the United States of America. Throughout Myanmar there are various dialects such as Beik, Mandalay Burmese, Yangon Burmese and Yaw. Due to the fact that speakers of the language have been in contact with other cultures, the spoken form of Burmese has been influenced by Portuguese, French, English and Dutch speakers.

In contrast the written script is influenced by Hinduism and Buddhism. It is an adaption of the Mon script which in turn derived from the Brahmi script of India. Consequently because the written word was designed to represent the Indo-Aryan language it is not ideally suited to meet the needs of the Burmese language.
