release time:Sep 14,2022

Sinhala, belonging to the Indo-European language family-Indian language family, is the main official language of Sri Lanka. Some people in the United Arab Emirates, Canada, Maldives, Singapore, Thailand and other places also use Sinhala. This language has some similarities with the languages of northern India and is currently spoken by a population of about 16 million. Any language used has the meaning of communication, and Sinhala is no exception. Especially in today's economic globalization, this ancient small language also has certain translation needs. So how is the Sinhala translation quoted?

#Know the Sinhala language:

Sinhalese is the language of the Sinhalese ethnic group in Sri Lanka, which was formed in the sixth century BC. In the 3rd century BC, Buddhism spread to the island, and the Sinhalese language was enriched and developed. The Sinhalese language in the initial stage was similar to the ancient Indian vernacular, and it developed independently from the ancient Indian vernacular after the 4th century AD. A grammar book written in the 13th century, the Hidart Sangwar, laid the foundation for Sinhalese grammar.

In its early development, Sinhala was deeply influenced by Pali, Sanskrit and Tamil, and in the modern era, it has absorbed a large number of loanwords from Portuguese, Dutch and English. At this point, an independent language consisting of 36 Sinhala and 18 Sanskrit letters was finally formed.
