At Translate UK we provide a professional Albanian translation service, as well as Albanian interpreters.

Albanian Language History
Albanian is an Indo-European language primarily spoken by Albanians in the Balkans. First documented in the 5th century, Albanian is an independent branch of the Indo-European language family and not closely connected to any other. Albanian’s origins are highly disputed with much unknown, though it is likely a descended of a Paleo-Balkan language. The language contains two main dialects, Gheg and Tosk. These dialects are spoken to the north and south of the Shkumbin river respectively. Standard Albanian is based on the Tosk dialect.
Albanian Across Europe
Albanian is the official language of both Albania and Kosovo. In North Macedonia Albanian is a co-official language alongside Macedonian. Albanian is also a recognised minority language in Italy, Montenegro, Romania, and Serbia. In addition to these recognised speakers, communities of Albanian speakers can be found elsewhere including Croatia, Turkey, and the Ukraine.
Albanian speakers are also located in Greece where they speak the Arvanitika variant of the Tosk dialect and in Italy where they speak the Arbëresh variant of Tosk.
In the United Kingdom the Albanian speaking population is incredibly small, however this is one of our most requested languages. Because of this we have many linguists skilled in all dialects of Albanian and are well placed to meet all Albanian language needs.
Sector Specific Services
At Translate UK we can provide Albanian translators or interpreters for a range of dialects. We can also provide additional support for certain sectors by providing them with linguists who have specialised in a specific field. Our linguists are required to keep up to date with specific industry terminology and requirements. This allows us to provide a more customised and supportive service.

All of our translators are qualified and vetted by us, and many are DPSI qualified or registered with the ITI or CIOL.
Albanian Legal Document Translation
We can provide Albanian translations for any document which is to be used in a legal setting. We have an in-house legal expert with almost 20 years’ experience as a solicitor and are acutely aware of the importance of accuracy and reliability when it comes to the translation of legal documents.
On top of this, each of our legal translators has a specialist focus in law, having worked in or completed training specific to the legal sector. We ensure that all of our legal translators are up to date with the current terminology both in the UK and in their native language to guarantee a quality translation with no mistakes.
Albanian Technical Document Translation
We can provide Albanian translations for technical or scientific documents. This includes journal literature, operation manuals, safety instructions, patents and technical drawings. We know how important it is to have precise, accurate and consistent translations of technical documents, so all our translations are done by experts in the field.
We ensure all of our linguists to stay up to date on the specialised terminology used in their field and for ongoing projects we’ll try to assign the same translator where possible so that they can become familiar with your company terminology and vocabulary.
Secure and Confidential
At Translate UK confidentiality is of the upmost importance to us and we are careful to act in complete compliance with GDPR regulations. Each of our linguists signs a confidentiality agreement before undertaking any work for us and we only ever send documents via secure email.
Albanian Interpreting Service
In addition to our Albanian translation service we can also provide Albanian speaking interpreters. All our interpreters are qualified experienced professionals with relevant post-graduate qualifications and membership of professional linguistic associations. We are well equipped to provide interpreters at short notice and we have even provided linguists for the same day.
Face to Face Albanian Interpreters
Our face to face Albanian interpreters work to facilitate communication between individuals who speak Albanian and those who speak English, in order to provide them with equal access to all of the services they might need. We recommend face to face interpreting where a conversation is necessary, including complex and sensitive situations where information is best delivered in person.
Remote Albanian Interpreters
We understand that it is not always possible to use a face-to-face interpreter, so we also provide a remote interpreting service. Our Albanian speaking remote interpreters can be contacted through a variety of platforms according to your business needs. This includes over-the-phone and a complimentary conference call service. They can also be contacted through video call platforms including Zoom and Skype.
