Interpreting & Translation Linguists Collective

Avestan, an ancient Iranian language, was primarily used in the sacred texts of Zoroastrianism, the religion founded by the prophet Zoroaster. This language was spoken in the region that is now modern-day Iran and parts of Central Asia. Although the Avestan language is no longer spoken today, it remains significant for its religious and historical importance. The Avestan texts, composed over several centuries, provide valuable insights into the early religious beliefs and cultural practices of the ancient Iranian people. With its distinctive phonology and grammar, Avestan has contributed to the development of the Iranian language family and has influenced the cultural and linguistic heritage of the region. Though not spoken in contemporary times, Avestan continues to be studied by scholars and enthusiasts interested in understanding the early religious and cultural traditions of ancient Persia.
