Estonia Coat of Arms

Estonian / Eesti Keel

Estonian is a Finno-Ugric language spoken by approximately 1.1 million people in Estonia. Estonian is closely related to Finnish but differs with respect to lexical origins. While Finish draws much of its vocabulary from Swedish, Estonian borrows heavily from German.

Estonian, along with other languages in the Finno-Ugric branch, does not belong to the Indo-European language group and is significantly different to most other European languages.

Our specialist Estonian linguists work with clients to facilitate communication with Estonian speakers around the world via quality translation and interpretation.

Estonian dialects are divided into two main groups: northern and southern. Northern dialects formed the basis for Standard Estonian and tend to be more influenced by Swedish and Finish, especially in coastal and insular regions.
