Who speaks Macedonian?
Macedonian belongs to the group of the South Slavic languages constituting part of the Indo-European language family. This language is used by up to 2 million people.
The only country where Macedonian has the official language status is Macedonia. Outside Macedonia, we may encounter its users only in emigrant minorities in Germany, the USA, Canada and Australia. Some communities in northern Greece also use Macedonian dialects.
History of the Macedonian language
Macedonian is the descendant of the Old Church Slavonic language. Until the 17th century, the Macedonian lands belonged to Bulgaria, due to which both languages are very close to each other, also historically. Since 1878, modern Macedonian, based on dialects not resembling Bulgarian, has begun to form. At the beginning of the 20th century, Macedonian literature started to develop. In 1944, the Anti-Fascist Council of National Liberation of Yugoslavia announced Macedonian a separate language. The creation of the Socialist Republic of Macedonia triggered the development of this language. The contemporary form of Macedonian is, therefore, the successor of the Old Church Slavonic language.
Use of the Macedonian language in business
Since Macedonian is only used in Macedonia, which is not a popular business destination, its knowledge will not be particularly useful in carrying out business activities on an international scale.
