English to Malagasy Translation Services
Malagasy is one of the official languages of Madagascar, with more than 25 million speakers. Although many people in Madagascar continue to use French in official and administrative settings, the vast majority of the country’s people prefer Malagasy as their main language of communication. So, if you want to reach the nation’s people in their words and on their terms, you need professional and reliable English-to-Malagasy translation services.
Despite Madagascar’s location, Malagasy is actually part of the Malayo-Polynesian branch of the Austronesian language family, making it more closely related to Malay, Indonesian, and Tagalog than any of the languages of Africa (like Zulu and Swahili). This leaves Malagasy with several features that translators must be aware of to produce accurate translations. For instance, Malagasy has a more complex system of expressing space and distance than most European languages. While English only distinguishes between “here” and “there,” Malagasy uses seven distinct words that convey both spatial relationship and social distance. Although these kinds of features can be hard to translate proficiently, at TranslationServices.com, we have the right skills and experience to provide quality English-to-Malagasy translations.
