Albanian translation services
On-time delivery guaranteed, with no surcharges ever
An eye for detail
Due to the continuously expanding economic, political and cultural relations, there is an increasing need for Albanian translations. While the languages of what linguists call the Balkan union – Albanian, Greek, Romanian, Bulgarian, Macedonian, Serbian and Croatian – despite their differing origins, have many common language and phonetic features, their vocabulary and grammatical systems considerably differ from each other in many ways. With the help of our native translators, we are up to speed on the slight nuances and constant changes. In order to avoid making mistakes, even when we translate the most complex texts, three experts work on each project: a translator, an editor and a proofreader. All of them work as a full-time translator with at least 5 years’ experience in translation, are native speakers of Albanian and hold a degree in translation.
Translating specialist documents from Albanian or to Albanian
We mainly offer translations from English and German into Albanian, but we are also comfortable when the source language is another European language, while we naturally translate out of Albanian too. We undertake the translation of countless types of documents, including clinical trial documentation, technical manuals and licence agreements.
We guarantee the very highest quality for all translations we undertake. We expect the translators at Albion Languages to be almost as experienced in the topic of the translation as the author of the document. In the case of technical, scientific and medical translations, for example, the author and the target audience often have a degree in medicine or a PhD – just like our translators.

The Albanian language
The Albanian language is spoken by approximately 7 million people as a mother tongue primarily in Albania and Kosovo, but there are small Albanian groups living in West Macedonia, Greece, Montenegro and Serbia as well. Although Albanians have been living in the Balkan Peninsula since the 1st and 2nd centuries, the first Albanian written record only dates from the 15th century. Major uncertainties exist concerning the history of Albanian, however, modern Albanian shows that it had contact with all the languages spoken in the region over the centuries. Loanwords from Greek, Latin, German, Slavic and Turkish can be found in the language.
Did you know?
Albanian is an Indo-European language which has its own branch within the language family and has no close relatives.
There are no infinitives in Albanian, verbs are included in dictionaries based on the form that the first person singular takes.
It took centuries for the Albanian writing system to reach its standard form, finally doing so in 1909, based on the Latin alphabet. One reason for this is that Albanian was used in everyday communication, but the languages of business and religion were Latin and Greek for a long time.
Although the origin of Albanian is uncertain, it is assumed that it originates from the mountain area. This assumption is based on the fact that the names of mountain fauna and flora are of Albanian origin, however, the names of fish and agricultural works were borrowed from Latin in later centuries.
