Navajo to English Translation Services
(We also offer English to Navajo translation services.)
The majority of professional translation agencies focus on larger languages such as German, Arabic, and Portuguese. As a result, smaller languages remain overlooked, especially indigenous languages such as Ojibwe, Cree, and Navajo. However, the team at TranslationServices.com is dedicated to providing professionals and academics with high-quality translations for smaller languages, including accurate Navajo to English translation services.
As an Athabaskan language with an extensive system of morphemes (word parts such as suffixes and prefixes) and long verbs that can take the role of entire sentences, Navajo is an infamously difficult language to translate. In addition to the language’s complex grammar, the modes of expressions in Navajo make finding a translation service with the necessary depth of knowledge to translate Navajo material faithfully into English difficult. However, thanks to our team’s years of experience translating Navajo, we’re able to offer reliable and accurate translations into English for a range of materials.
Materials We Translate from Navajo to English
Works of literature. While the Navajo tradition of storytelling has been mostly oral, a new form of written expression has emerged since the 1950s. We translate written stories, poems, songs, and more into English while aiming to maintain the tone and feeling of the original.
Historical documents. For language academics and researchers, we provide translations for numerous historical texts originally written in Navajo, including those written in now defunct writing systems.
Religious texts. We also provide English translations for religious and spiritual texts originally written in Navajo, including hymns, psalms, dirges, and prayer songs.
For those in need of experienced Navajo to English translators, TranslationServices.com is ready to help manage your project, whether you’re in the Navajo Nation or anywhere else.
