Our Musey Translation Services Are All Ready Now

There are more than 7,000 languages spoken around the world—the figure can be higher or lower depending on what you count as a “language” versus a “dialect,” but the fact that we live in a highly linguistically diverse world stands. Africa is a hotspot of linguistic diversity, partially thanks to the vitality of indigenous languages across the continent—in most African countries, people speak their local, indigenous vernacular at home, learning regional and national lingua francas to communicate with others in the country. Chad is one such nation with many indigenous languages—and one of them is Musey.

Musey is known by a lot of names: you may also hear it called Bananna, Bananna Ho, Ho, Mosi, Moussei, Moussey, Musaya, Musei, Museyna, Musiina, Musoi, Mussoi, or Mussoy. The number of native speakers totals roughly 430,000, which makes it one of the biggest languages in Chad, a land of more than 120 languages. Unfortunately, the language is afforded no official recognition in the country, which puts it under threat of Chad’s official languages: French and Arabic. We at want to support Musey—so we made our own Musey translation services.

A quick look into what kind of language Musey is

The vast majority of Musey speakers are citizens of Chad, generally living in the southwestern regions of Mayo-Kebbi Est and Tandjilé. Approximately 20,000 native Musey speakers also live in Cameroon, specifically in the southeastern portion of the department of Danay. Musey speakers have branched off into a few different dialects, whose names typically take after the villages they’re spoken in: Bongor-Jodo-Tagal-Berem-Gunu, Jaraw-Domo, Lew, Pe, and Pe-Holom-Gamé.

How does Musey relate to the many other languages spoken around it? It belongs to the Afroasiatic language family, just like Arabic and Hebrew, but its relation to these major languages is extremely distant. Since Musey is found on the Chadic branch within the family, it’s more closely related to Hausa, a major language in northern Nigeria, but the relation is still rather distant. A much closer relative is Massa (also known as Masana or Masa), also spoken in Chad and Cameroon by some 340,000 people. It’s not related to English, which means translation to and from English can be difficult—but that’s why we’ve hired native Musey speakers for our translation team.

Call on us whenever you need Musey translation services.

We’ve built a large and flexible enough team to cater to the diverse needs of our clients, no matter their translation projects. Most of our Musey translators are from Chad, but we’ve also hired native speakers from Cameroon to ensure a broad coverage of Musey dialects and variants. Our translators love their native language, and they’re eager to help people from across Chad, Cameroon, and the world transcend the language barrier, no matter which side of it they stand on. That’s right: we translate both to and from Musey.

Since some of our Musey translators are specialists in different areas, we can even cater to more niche translation requests. Say, for example, you’re a researcher who wants to survey native Musey speakers in Chad or Cameroon—we can translate your research questionnaire. Or perhaps you run a company and you want local Musey speakers to feel welcome at your business—we can translate your promotional materials into Musey. If you’re a creative writer, penning stories in either Musey or English, our literary translators can meticulously translate your works to ensure both the message and writing style is expertly conveyed in the other language. Whatever kind of Musey translation project you have, we’re ready to help.
