Serbian to English and English to Serbian Translation Services
* The Glagolitic alphabet was used from the 11th Century to write Serbian but was later replaced by the Cyrillic and Latin alphabets, both of which are easily read and written by literate Serbians.
* Serbian is one of the only European standard languages with completely syn-chronic scripts that uses both Cyrillic and Latin alphabets.
* The Cyrillic alphabet was developed by Serbian linguist Vuk Karadžić in 1814 and is based on phonemic principles, while the Latin alphabet was developed in 1830 by Croatian linguist Ljudevit Gaj.
* Although both the Latin and Cyrillic alphabets are officially recognized in Serbia, the Cyrillic alphabet was adopted as the official script of the Serbian government in 2006.

About the Serbian Language
* Serbian is a South Slavic language spoken by around 12 million people around the world that was once known as Serbo-Croatian but later split into Serbian, Bosnian and Croatian.
* It is spoken mainly in Serbia but is fairly well understood in Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, as their various languages are so similar as to be nearly identical.
* Serbian is derived from Old Church Slavic which was a common language spoken by most Slavic people between the 9th and 11th Centuries.
* For years, Serbian and Croatian were considered one language so their histories are nearly identical although they are not completely mutually intelligible.
* The Croatian language was never really standardized and so the linguistic standard of the former Yugoslavia was based primarily on Serbian.
* Since the collapse of the Communist regime and the gradual dissolution of Yugoslavia, Serbian has been rejected by all its former states.
* Standard Serbian is based on Shtokavian which is the most commonly spoken dialect of Serbo-Croatian, although another commonly spoken Serbian dialect is Torlakian which has a strong influence on Macedonian and Bulgarian.

* Although the Swiss are world renowned for their clock making, the Serbians had their own clock 600 years before the Swiss made theirs.
