Our Zyphe Translation Services Are Now Available



The world is alive with far more languages than most people realize. While countries like Germany, France, or Poland seem linguistically straightforward—the vast majority of people speak German, French, or Polish, respectively, as their native language, with few indigenous minority languages—the situation is completely different in many parts of the world. Take Myanmar, for example—only around two-thirds of this Southeast Asian country’s population speaks its official language, Burmese, natively, with the rest divided up among more than 100 minority languages. One of those languages is Zyphe.


Zyphe recorded around 20,000 native speakers between 1994 and 2000, with the figure likely increasing over the past couple decades, although little research exists on the language. Despite its small size, it’s considered a stable and vigorous language, spoken by most ethnically Zyphe people. However, not many resources exist for Zyphe, and translation services are difficult to come by. At TranslationServices.com, we believe in the equal value of all the world’s languages, and we want to support languages like Zyphe—so we’re debuting our very own Zyphe translation services.

A quick overview of the profile of the Zyphe language

Zyphe—which you may also see spelled as Zophei—is primarily spoken in Myanmar, with a minority of speakers living across the border in India. More precisely, Zyphe speakers reside in northwestern Myanmar, in the Thantlang township of Chin State. However, the Burmese civil war, which began in 2021, has devastated much of Thantlang, forcing scores of residents to flee to India, thereby changing the demographics of Zyphe speakers. Thousands of Zyphe speakers can also be found in the U.S., specifically Indianapolis, Indiana.


Like Burmese, Mandarin, and Tibetan, Zyphe is a member of the Sino–Tibetan language family, but it’s not closely related to any of these languages. Rather, it belongs to the Kuki-Chin language cluster spoken in northwestern Myanmar and northeastern India, the most prominent member of which is Mizo. Zyphe speakers can be classified into three main dialects: Upper Zyphe, Lower Zyphe A, and Lower Zyphe B. Each dialect then has subvarieties, such as the Nuitah (Leitak) variety of Upper Zyphe, the Tlawngrang variety of Lower Zyphe A, and the Lawngtlang variety of Lower Zyphe B. Translating minority languages far removed from English, like Zyphe, is difficult—but that’s why we hire native-speaking translators who are passionate about their language.
