Dialects: As with most languages, Gujarati comes in numerous regional dialects. Some have Arabic and Persian borrowings, while other dialects take from Portuguese, English or Hindi. The main dialects fall into the following groups: standard Gujarati, Gamadia, Persian-influenced Gujarati, Kharwa, Khakari, Tarimukhi and East African Gujarati. Kutchi is often referred to as a dialect of Gujarati.

Currency: As an Indian state, Gujarat uses the rupee, divisible into 100 paise.

Language Tips: The word order of Gujarati is subject-object-verb, although there is considerable flexibility. Gujarati possesses no articles (a, the). The word 'one': ek can sometimes be used for 'a'. Gujarati has three genders, masculine, feminine and neutral. Markers are often at the end of words.

On a typical business card: It isn’t necessary to translate business cards as English is widely spoken in the business community. However, it could be useful to have your card translated on the reverse. Any degrees or titles you possess should be added to the card.
