English to Hebrew Translation

Hebrew language

Hebrew is a Semitic language of the Afro-Asiatic language family spoken by more than seven million people in Israel and Jewish communities around the world. Hebrew in its modern form is spoken by people in Israel while Classical Hebrew has been used for prayer or study in Jewish communities around the world for over two thousand years. The modern word 'Hebrew' is derived from the word 'ivri' one of several names for the Jewish people. In Israel, it is the de facto language of the state and the people, as well as being one of the two official languages (together with Arabic), and it is spoken by a majority of the population.

English language

English is West Germanic language brought to Britain in the 5th Century AD by Germanic settlers from various parts of northwest Germany. Historically, English originated from the fusion of languages and dialects, called Old English, with the word 'English' being derived from the name of the Angles. The language was further influenced by the Old Norse language with Viking invasions in the 8th and 9th century. A significant number of English words are constructed based on roots from Latin, because Latin in some form was the lingua franca of the Christian Church and of European intellectual life.
