    The formal word for the Latvian language is latviešu valoda. The shortened latviešu (of Latvians) is often seen in multilingual Web sites.

    Latviešu alone or without adequate context does not sound right. It is similar to Eesti for Estonian as discussed elsewhere. Also there is another word latviski that can be used alone to indicate Latvian language.
