English to Xhosa Translation Services


Xhosa is an official language in South Africa and Zimbabwe and is widely spoken in both countries, especially by the Xhosa people. With more than 8 million in South Africa claiming Xhosa as their mother tongue, it has the second-highest number of native speakers in the country, second to Zulu. Additionally, more than 11 million people are fluent in Xhosa as a second language. The majority of Xhosa speakers are multilingual and often also speak English, Afrikaans, or Zulu. However, the best way to extend your message to the Xhosa people is with a language that resonates with them on a personal level.

Xhosa belongs to the Bantu language group, alongside Swahili and Kinyarwanda. However, it has a particularly close relationship with Zulu and Ndebele, sharing much of the same grammar. As a result, Xhosa forms words through agglutination—attaching multiple suffixes and prefixes onto root words. This means that a single word in Xhosa can (and often must) contain more information than its counterpart in English. Despite Xhosa’s complexities, our team looks forward to the challenge of providing English to Xhosa translation services.
