Macedonian language is now available
We are happy to announce the launch of our sites for community, jobs, classifieds, housing and directory in Macedonian! Macedonian serves as the official language of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, where it is spoken by approximately 2 million people. Macedonian is a native language to the majority of Macedonia’s inhabitants, and is also a second language for many minority groups in the country. Macedonian is also spoken and taught in schools in Romania, due to the fact that Macedonians are an officially recognized minority group.
The Macedonian language is divided into two primary dialects: eastern and western. Differences between the two are small, however, and in general Macedonian dialects are less distinct than those of other Slavic languages such as Slovenian, Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian, or Bulgarian.
A large number of Macedonians live outside the traditional Balkan Macedonian region, with Australia, Canada and the United States having the largest emigrant communities. The Macedonian spoken by communities outside the republic dates back to before the standardisation of the language in 1944 and retains many dialectic variations.
UPDATE 4th Feb 2011: We just took a look at our latest visitor statistics and adding this language has doubled our visits from the Republic of Macedonia.
We are working really hard to make Just Landed as useful as possible for as many people as possible, so this is great to see.
