Tibetan Information

Tibetan is spoken by approximately six million people in Tibet, China (Qinghai, Gansu, Sichuan and Yunnan), India, Bhutan, Sikkim, Ladakh and Nepal. In Mongolia the Tibetan language is considered the classical language of Buddhism and was widely taught until recently. The "standard" language as it is spoken today around Lhasa is called “Colloquial Tibetan”. But there are four major dialects in Tibet, and people from different regions may have trouble understanding each other.

Before 1949-50, Tibet had only three provinces: Amdo, which is now split into the Qinghai, Gansu and Sichuan provinces; Kham, now mostly belongs to the provinces of Sichuan, Yunnan and Qinghai; and U-Tsang, which, along with western Kham, is now known as the Tibet Autonomous Region, or called “TAR”, formed in 1965.

Language Facts

Interesting facts: Tibetan script was created based on the writing systems of the ancient Indic languages of India. The writing system thus developed by Thonmi Sambhota around the 7th century was extensively employed for the translation of sacred Buddhist scriptures into Tibetan. The written language varies in certain ways from colloquial Tibetan as it is spoken today.

Since the Chinese invasion of Tibet many advanced Tibetan scholars and meditation masters have escaped to India and the West, carrying with them Buddha’s teachings, many of the Buddhist texts and sacred art works. These scripts and works are therefore preserved at many Tibetan Buddhist institutes in India and in various Western countries. The language in which these scripts are written is known as “Classical” Tibetan. However, of the thousands of volumes of these texts it is estimated that less than one percent have been translated into Western languages.

Writing

The Tibetan alphabet The Tibetan alphabet consists of 30 consonants and 4 vowels. The letters are written from left to right and in forming various words the letters are sometimes stacked. There are two forms of writing the Tibetan script, the one used for printing is called “u-chen”, the informal one is called “khyuk yig”, which means the 'flowing script'. Microsoft now offers a unicode based font called Microsoft Himalaya.

Tibetan most closely resembles Burmese.

With the typographic support and the jump to Unicode, previous limitation on Tibetan fonts has been lifted. We will deliver two versions of our translation, one in MS Word, PowerPoint or Excel in Unicode, the second one converted to PDF.
