Introducing Translation Services for Silacayoapan Mixtec

It’s true that most people in Mexico speak Spanish—but you may not be aware that this massive Latin American country is the sixth-most linguistically diverse country in the world, with more than 285 languages indigenous to its lands still spoken today. Particularly in southern Mexico, many indigenous languages are still alive and well, with large communities of speakers who sometimes don’t even speak Spanish. While the Mexican government tends to recognize these languages in groups, linguists differentiate the many related languages in a single grouping, such as Silacayoapan Mixtec.

The Mixtec languages are one of the biggest language groups in Mexico, boasting more than 530,000 native speakers in total—and Silacayoapan Mixtec, with around 150,000 native speakers, is one of the biggest Mixtec languages. Even within Silacayoapan Mixtec, linguists have identified six different dialects with varying mutual intelligibility, making the language highly diverse. These circumstances complicate translation services, but we at have taken on the challenge and are proud to offer our new Silacayoapan Mixtec translation services.

Diving into the details of Silacayoapan Mixtec

Silacayoapan Mixtec is one of the many indigenous languages spoken in Mexico’s south, which houses a large indigenous population, many of whom speak no Spanish. Silacayoapan Mixtec is spoken in the states of Oaxaca, Guerrero, and Puebla, spread across six dialects: Metlatónoc, Portezuelo, Coicoyán, Juxtlahuaca, Alacatlatzala, and Silacayoapan proper. As a whole, Silacayoapan Mixtec forms one of several Mixtec languages, which belong to the extensive Oto–Manguean family, a prominent family of indigenous languages in southern Mexico.

Grammatically, Silacayoapan Mixtec (and other Mixtec languages) are an entirely different world from English or Spanish. For one thing, its default word order is verb-subject-object, although the word order can be altered to emphasis different aspects of a sentence. The language has several third-person pronouns to distinguish different referents, with separate pronouns for men, women, children (not gender-specific), animals, and even gods. First- and second-person pronouns come in independent and dependent forms, with independent forms standing on their own but dependent forms being added to existing words, like verbs, but third-person pronouns only exist in the dependent form. Silacayoapan Mixtec verbs distinguish three basic tenses—future, present, and past—with the basic form of verbs in the language constituting the future tense. The grammatical nuances of Silacayoapan Mixtec can make the language different to translate to and from, but that’s why we’ve hired native speakers—and they’re eager to work with you.
