There are few countries more linguistically diverse than India (in fact, there’s only three of them: Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, and Nigeria). Across India are close to 450 different languages that have developed on the subcontinent over millennia, establishing rich identities with different cultures, literature, and more. A huge percentage of Indians don’t speak Hindi at all, although many indigenous languages in the north of the country are related to Hindi. One such language is Chhattisgarhi.
Chhattisgarhi is spoken by around 18 million people, mostly in the landlocked state of Chhattisgarh, where it’s recognized as an official language. This means the language can be used in official and administrative settings and that children can receive education in Chhattisgarhi—even if they often don’t. Hindi and English are also official languages of Chhattisgarh, however, and both are more prestigious than Chhattisgarhi. That’s why it can be difficult to find a translation firm that has a Chhattisgarhi translation team. If that’s what you’re looking for, you’ve found it with TranslationServices.com: we’re proud of our Chhattisgarhi translation team.

Here’s a little more information on Chhattisgarhi.
The primary area where Chhattisgarhi is spoken is Chhattisgarh—naturally—but it’s also spoken in border regions of the neighboring states of Jharkhand, Odisha, and Maharashtra. The language can be written both in the Devanagari script (which is used for Hindi) and the Odia script, but it’s usually written in Devanagari. Surgujia, spoken in northern Chhattisgarh by around 1.7 million people, is recognized as a Chhattisgarhi dialect, although it’s highly divergent and only shares around 75% of the vocabulary, so some linguists consider it a separate language.
Chhattisgarhi is part of the Indo–European language family, so it’s technically related to English. But whereas English is on the European side of the family, Chhattisgarhi hails from the Indo side. It’s an Indo–Aryan language like Hindi and is sometimes even considered a dialect of Hindi, even though they’re not mutually intelligible. Chhattisgarhi has several nominal cases used to indicate a noun’s syntactical role in a sentence and three genders (masculine, feminine, and neuter) that inform nominal inflection. Verbs also undergo conjugation for tense, aspect, and mood, as well as the number and person of the subject.
