Georgia is not just a state in the U.S., it’s also a beautiful country! If you are looking for a place to hire, Georgia is a wonderful option.

What are the Primary Languages of Georgia?

Georgia country site landscape

In Georgia, the official language is Georgian which is the primary language of 87% of the country’s population. The language is only spoken by 4 million people, most of whom reside in Georgia. The language also utilizes its own unique alphabet.

Since the Georgian language is not spoken too much outside of the country, they have had to adapt. Currently, English is taught in every school in Georgia, and most under the age of 40 can speak and understand it fluently. In Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, English is widely considered to be a second language.

What Time Zone is Georgia in?

The time zone for Georgia is GMT+4 which means they are 4 hours ahead of the U.K. When it is noon in the U.K. it is 4 p.m. in Georgia. Over in the United States, that means for the East Coast, when it is noon, it is 9 at night in Georgia and when it is noon on the West Coast, it’s midnight the next day in Georgia.

At first glance, this may sound like a problem for U.S.-based companies, but really it doesn’t have to be. There are always people willing to work off-hours or to at least work a schedule that will share a few hours of overlap. You can also look at the time difference as a major advantage. How often have you had to pay overtime or risk your products or services going down midday because of downtime after an update? Now, you can have a team that is already working off hours to handle any updates and keep the downtime when the downtime should be, while your clients are asleep.
