Polish / W języku polskim
Polish is a West Slavic language spoken by approximately 40 million people across the globe. After Russian it is the second most widely spoken Slavic language. Polish holds official language status only in Poland, but is used throughout the world in Polish speaking communities. The language is closely related to Sorbian, Slovak and Czech.
Poland is said to be one of the most homogeneous European country linguistically, as many as 97% of the population say their native language is Polish. The Polish alphabet is based on the Latin alphabet with the additions of nine more letters (ą, ć, ę, ł, ń, ó, ś, ź, ż).
Polish in Scotland
After Poland joined the EU in 2004 there was a large influx of Polish immigration to the United Kingdom. Consequently, Scotland’s Polish-speaking population increased twenty times over the last decade. Today Polish is the second most commonly used language in Scotland. In Glasgow and Edinburgh alone there are about 21,000 Polish inhabitants. However, Polish communities can today be found all across Scotland, not just in larger cities like Glasgow and Edinburgh, where the culture and language is flourishing with the help of Polish community centres and churches.
With such a significant proportion of the Scottish population speaking Polish, it is increasingly important for businesses and organisations to be able to communicate with this growing demographic.

Did You Know?
The Poles are a chivalrous bunch. Although it’s far from common practice, Poland is one of the few countries in the world where you might still see a man kiss a woman’s hand out of courtesy. This behaviour is reflected in their formal language.
