About Latvian Language Agency consultations
The linguists of the Latvian Language Agency provide consultations regarding questions about the Latvian language. Every resident of Latvia can obtain advice on:
  • rendering of foreign proper names in Latvian in accordance with the norms of the Latvian literary language;
  • the correct spelling of personal names and issues of identification, so that a personal name written in different languages would still refer to one and the same person (e.g.., Ivan in Russian, Johan in German and Jānis in Latvian could be one and the same person, the spelling of whose name responds to the name spelling traditions in different languages);
  • spelling, pronunciation, grammar, questions related to vocabulary and language style.
