Akan is a Niger-Congo language in the same family as Swahili, Yoruba, and Zulu.

Specifically, Akan belongs to the Kwa branch, which most of the grammar of Haitian Creole is based on. While translating into any language is always a difficult undertaking, properly translating text into Akan is particularly challenging due to the culture surrounding the Akan language. Akan is noteworthy for its extensive use of proverbs, idioms, and intertextuality between Akan-language works, and not using such expressions can make speech seem flat and awkward to native speakers. As such, obtaining a skillful translation means using a translation service that knows how to strike the right balance to craft your message in natural-sounding Akan. For this, our translators are highly experienced in working with a range of materials aimed at Akan speakers.
