Language Overview

Armenian, an Indo-European language, has its unique alphabet created by Mesrop Mashtots in the 5th century. It is spoken by about 6.7 million people, mainly in Armenia and the Armenian diaspora. It consists of two standardized forms: Eastern and Western Armenian.
Market Insights
In Armenia, television and social media are primary sources of content consumption. The Armenian diaspora also plays a significant role in shaping media trends, with a focus on preserving cultural heritage.
Cultural Context
Armenian culture values hospitality and respect for tradition. Language usage varies between the Eastern and Western forms, reflecting historical and regional influences. Social hierarchy is often mirrored in language formalities.
Writing System and Typography
The Armenian script is distinct with 38 letters and flows left to right. Special characters and diacritics are used. Typography considerations include the unique design of letters.
Phonetics and Phonology
Armenian’s phonology includes sounds that are rare in other languages, like the voiceless uvular fricative. It has a series of ejective consonants, which can be challenging for non-native speakers.
Grammatical Structure
Armenian sentence structure primarily follows the Subject-Object-Verb (SOV) order. It exhibits seven cases and complex verb conjugations, differing notably from English in these aspects.
Media and Text Layout
Text in Armenian tends to expand by about 10-20% in translation. Subtitling must consider the unique alphabet and character width. Voice-over requires attention to phonetic nuances.
Localization Challenges
Translators often face challenges in rendering idiomatic expressions and proverbs accurately. Cultural adaptation is crucial in multimedia content to maintain the essence of the original.
Technical Considerations
Compatibility with major software platforms is generally good, but specific font support can be an issue. Text rendering in digital formats must account for the unique alphabet.
Other information
Armenian culture is deeply intertwined with its language, reflecting a long history of literary and artistic traditions.
