About the Croatian language

Croatian is a standardized variety of the Serbo-Croatian language, and a South Slavic language. Unlike Serbian, which uses Cyrillic, Croatian is written with the Latin alphabet. Speakers of Croatian generally understand the Serbian, Bosnian and Montenegrin languages, all of which many linguists consider dialects of Serbo-Croatian. However, due to ethnic differences, categorization of these languages can be sensitive. There are around 5.6 million speakers of Croatian. Croatian is an official language of Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Serbian province of Vojvodina and the Austrian state of Burgenland. It is also spoken by pockets of Croats in surrounding countries.
