English to Yoruba Translation Services
Yoruba belongs to the Niger-Congo language family, like Igbo, Swahili, and Zulu. However, unlike most other languages in this group, Yoruba is an isolating language, much like Mandarin Chinese or Burmese. This means that different words are formed by compounding divisible parts and that maintaining the correct word order is essential to expressing the grammatical role of each word in a sentence. Yoruba also stands out for how significantly it has been influenced by English and Arabic, and like other languages in the region, Yoruba makes extensive use of proverbs and sayings that translators must be aware of to provide natural-sounding materials in the language.
Yoruba has a wide geographic range in West Africa, and in total, there are about 40 million speakers in the region. Most Yoruba speakers live in southwest Nigeria, with about a quarter of the country’s population claiming it as their mother tongue. Additionally, Yoruba is an official language in Benin and Togo and has a large population of speakers in Liberia, Côte d’Ivoire, and Sierra Leone. Although English is often the language of formal situations in the region, Yoruba remains the preferred language for the 40 million Yoruba people. Translating your materials into Yoruba will help you distinguish your message from others and connect with people via their mother tongue.
