Introducing Our Brand-New Aringa Translation Services

Quick—what language do they speak in Uganda? If you answered English, Swahili, or Luganda, well, you’re technically right—English and Swahili are the East African nation’s official languages, with Luganda designated as the national language. But actually, it’s a trick question, given that there are more than 70 languages indigenous to the land. Uganda abounds with different languages spoken natively and vigorously in all areas of the country, and it’s here that we find Aringa.

According to 2014 data, Aringa boasts nearly 500,000 native speakers, making it a sizable and influential language in the multilingual country. Aringa’s classification brings difficulties, with some linguists categorizing it as a dialect of Lugbara and others considering it a separate and independent language. No set criteria exist for the distinction between a language and a dialect, but it’s worth noting that the speakers of Lugbara and Ma’di, another closely related language, consider Aringa to be separate. No matter how Aringa is classified, it’s an important cultural asset of the Aringa people, and we at are proud to provide translation services for the tongue, which is often overlooked by other translation companies.

Taking a brief dive into the Aringa language

We know Aringa is spoken in Uganda, but where exactly in the diverse nation is the language spoken? That’s easy—in Aringa County, part of Yumbe District tucked away in the northwest of Uganda’s Northern Region. Like many other languages in northern Uganda, Aringa is a member of the Nilo–Saharan language family, although Aringa occupies the Central Sudanic branch, whereas most related languages in Uganda belong to the Eastern Sudanic branch. While Aringa is distantly related to languages like Maasai, Dholuo, and Kanuri, its closest relatives include Lugbara, Ma’di, Moru, and several others.

Aringa features three key dialects, which may differ significantly in certain regards: Andre, Kuluba, and Lebati. As with most other languages in Uganda, Aringa is written in the Latin alphabet, albeit with the addition of several accented characters to denote different vowels or tones. Indeed, Aringa is a tonal language, which means that the tone of a word can impact its meaning or grammatical nuance. Like in Swahili, the lingua franca of northern Uganda, adjectives and numerals come after the noun in Aringa, and prefixes are used to denote verbal tense. Aringa’s grammar is complicated for an English speaker to grasp, making the efforts of our native-speaking Aringa translators all the more important.

We’re here to provide the customized Aringa translation services you want.

We believe that Aringa deserves all the care and attention that bigger languages like German or French receive. That’s why we’ve endeavored to find the best and brightest Aringa translators from across northern Uganda, recruiting them to our team to help clients from all over the world translate both to and from Aringa. If you’re looking for services in a particular dialect, such as Andre, Kuluba, or Lebati, all you have to do is ask, and we’ll happily assign you to the most suitable translator on our team.

The same applies if you’re looking for specialty translation services for more niche purposes. For example, you may want to translate a research questionnaire into Aringa to distribute to locals—our academic team would love to help. Or, if you run an organization with a presence in Aringa County, you may be interested in our business translation services to disseminate promotional materials to local Aringa speakers. Maybe you want to share a traditional Aringa story with the rest of the world, or perhaps you’d like to bring engaging new literary content to the Aringa people—in either direction, our literary translators are eager to assist.
