Our Newest Translation Services Cater to Hakha Chin



Southeast Asia is one of the most linguistically diverse places on the planet. Here, you’ll find hundreds of distinct languages from several different families, generally spoken as minority languages against the backdrop of national and regional lingua francas that most people learn to communicate with those outside their ethnic group. These languages, while relatively small, may nonetheless boast large and vigorous communities of speakers—as is the case with Hakha Chin.


Hakha Chin—not to be confused with Hakka Chinese, a major Sinitic language—is spoken by some 440,000 people in Myanmar, India, and Bangladesh as a native language. The precise count is difficult to ascertain, however, and could be higher or lower. An estimated 50,000 Hakha Chin speakers also live in Western countries like the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Denmark, and Norway, making the language more international. However, despite its international spread, relatively large size, and considerable regional influence, Hakha Chin generally lacks translation services—so we at TranslationServices.com are proud to provide our own new Hakha Chin translation team.

Hakha Chin: the lingua franca of Myanmar’s Chin State

As its name suggests, Hakha Chin is a language of the Chin cluster, a group of related languages in the Sino–Tibetan language family. Thus, Hakha Chin is not only related to Mandarin (as well as Hakka Chinese) and Tibetan but also Burmese, the official language of Myanmar. In Myanmar, where it’s alternatively called Laiholh, it’s native to the northwestern Chin State, where it functions as a regional lingua franca, with speakers of other languages all learning Hakha Chin to communicate. In India, it’s spoken in the state of Mizoram, where it’s known as Lai Pawi or Lai Hawlh, and it’s taught in some elementary schools.


Although literacy rates have traditionally been somewhat low, they have been increasing in younger generations, particularly among speakers in India, where most young Hakha Chin speakers are literate in the language. Hakha Chin is usually written in the Latin alphabet or, sometimes, the native Pau Cin Hau script, but this distinguishes it from many other languages in India and Bangladesh, which are typically written in Devanagari, the script used for Hindi, or other, similar scripts. However, that’s not to say Hakha Chin is anything like English—it’s completely different, even in its basic word order of subject-object-verb. It takes a skilled native speaker to accurately translate Hakha Chin—and that’s why we’ve only hired skilled native speakers for our team.
