Maltese is the language spoken in all Maltese islands which comprise the Republic of Malta. Malta is an island country in the Mediterranean Sea, located 80 km south of Italy. Maltese has been proclaimed a national language when Malta gained its independence from the United Kingdom and is now spoken by around 400,000 people in Malta, and by approximately 100,000 Maltese immigrants in Australia, the US, Canada, Italy and the UK. Maltese is one of the two official languages of the country, together with English. Today, Maltese is used in most sectors of public life (Parliament, the church, the press and other media), while English is generally the preferred medium of instruction in schools.With our team of experienced, bilingual

The Maltese language was developed from Siculo-Arabic or Sicilian Arabic, a form of Arabic that developed in Sicily and Malta between the 9th and 14th centuries. Siculo-Arabic continued to be spoken in Malta long after is went extinct in Sicily (about 1300).
Maltese is written in a Latin-based script which became standardized in the 1920s and officially adopted in 1934 and this makes it the only Semitic language written in the Latin script in its standard form. It also comprises special characters: the dotted ġ, ċ, and ż and barred ħ.
Given that Maltese is now an European Union language, there is an increased demand for Maltese translations. The challenge the translators face is the new vocabulary, as new words are forming daily.
