English to Swahili Translation Services


Swahili, also known as Kiswahili, falls next to Arabic as the most spoken language in Africa. Although spoken by around only 16 million people as a native language, it has a whopping 82 million second-language users. Swahili also enjoys the status of a national or official language in Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo and is one of the official languages of the African Union.


If you’re looking to expand your business or trying to reach a considerable African audience of 98 million people, translating your business documents or your academic or creative work from English to Swahili is a wise decision.

Using just any English to Swahili translation service may be counterproductive, though. If you rely on cheap or free software, you might end up with literal translations that can range from funny to plainly unintelligible. And if you choose to handle by yourself the process of selecting the best translator for your project, you may get lucky or you may not. It’s important that when you introduce your product or your work, your audience focuses on your message, not on funny or confusing translations.
