Uzbek is the state official language of Uzbekistan (one of the former republics of the Soviet Union). There are about 33 million Uzbeks in the modern world. 22 million of them live in Uzbekistan where the population is just under 27 million people. About 3 million people live in Afghanistan, where the Uzbek language is one of the official languages. A little less than 1 million Uzbeks live in Tajikistan and in some other central Asian countries including Turkey, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. If the scope of your business includes Uzbek people or you just need a high-quality translation into Uzbek then you can’t do without a professional translator.
The Uzbek language belongs to the Altaic language family and its roots lie in the Central Asian group of Turkic languages. The first reference about the representatives of the Uzbek nation was in ancient China. Historic and ethnic transcription of the world “Uzbek” is “yuetszubay” or “yuetszybe”. The Uzbek Khanate can rightly be called as the first historic state of Uzbeks, which was a part of the White Horde (the 14th century) and was governed by Uzbek-Khan.
There are two groups of modern dialect of the Uzbek language, which have different pronunciation – the dialect which retains the unstressed “o” (Tashkent, Samarkand and Bukhara) and the dialect which retains the unstressed “a”. The dialects of the neighboring territories are a little bit similar to Turkic languages. Also there is the North dialect of the Uzbek language, which is very similar to Uighur or Kazakh. It is evident that necessary translation into Uzbek depends on the usage of one or another dialect.
The basis of the Uzbek literary language can be considered the Old Uzbek language. The Old Turkic language was also involved in the formation of the Uzbek literary language. The lexis of the Uzbek language is riddled with Arabisms (words borrowed from Persian). The phonetics of the Uzbek language is different from other Turkic languages by retain the unstressed “o” and the lack of vowel harmony. The distinctive feature in grammar is the absence of the gender category. Linguists of Status Ko have these nuances in their finger tip.
