English to Shona Translation Services
Shona, also known as chiShona, is one of the official languages of Zimbabwe and the mother tongue of the Mashona people. Although English is the primary language used in Zimbabwe’s education and legal systems, Shona is the mother tongue of 75% of the nation’s people and the main language of everyday communication. Though having material in English is commonplace and even expected in the country, English to Shona translation can make your organization stand out from the crowd and grab people’s attention.
Shona is part of the Bantu branch of the Niger-Congo language family, like Sesotho, Zulu, and Swahili. As one of the most widely spoken Bantu languages, Shona has a huge number of noun classes and an elaborate verb system for expressing the time and completeness of an action as well as how it’s performed. Additionally, Shona terminology can be particularly hard to master, as technical terms tend to have unexpected etymologies because new words and neologisms are usually made from metaphors drawing on Shona culture. However, our team of translators has the experience necessary to provide translations for a variety of materials for Shona speakers.
