We Now Have a Team for Hina Translation Services

Our vast world houses more languages than most people give it credit for. More than 7,000 languages are spoken across 200-odd countries, and although the majority of the world population is represented by only a handful of these languages, the smaller ones still boast an important presence in their local areas. Every language contains a wealth of culture and value, and we at appreciate the vast linguistic diversity the world has to offer. That’s why we’re proud to offer translation services for languages like Hina.

Hina—also known as Mina or Besleri—is spoken by only around 11,000 people, so it’s hardly a big language. However, despite the threat that Hina faces from the many other languages spoken around it, it’s still commonly spoken in its immediate area. Most speakers of Hina are bilingual, also speaking Fula, one of the biggest indigenous languages in Africa. Educated Hina speakers typically also speak French as a third language. Translation services for Hina are difficult to access, so we at want to make a difference with our new Hina translation services.

Allow us to take a little tour through the Hina language.

Hina is native to the Far North Region of Cameroon, close to the borders of both Nigeria and Chad. Specifically, it’s spoken widely in the Hina commune, which is situated in the Mayo-Tsanaga Department of the region. Hina consists of three major dialects—Besleri, Jingjing (alternatively Jɨŋjɨŋ or Dzumdzum), and Gamdugun—with Besleri constituting the main dialect. Jingjing and Gamdugun are spoken in the south of the Hina commune. Mutual intelligibility between the dialects is limited, although researchers have demonstrated one-way intelligibility between some dialects.

Hina belongs to the Afroasiatic language family, like Arabic and Hebrew, but unlike those two, it’s located on the Chadic branch, making it more closely related to Hausa. Hina’s basic word order is subject-verb-object, just like English, and it places the noun before all modifiers, including adjectives, demonstratives (words like “this” and “that”), and numerals. While Hina has no case markers, it remains a complex language, with plural markers that may appear on modifiers rather than the noun itself or interrogative particles to indicate a question. Such complications can make it difficult to translate to and from Hina, but that’s why we’ve hired proud, native-speaking Hina translators for our team.

Let our team provide you with high-quality Hina translation services.

Hina isn’t a big language, but we still want to provide the best Hina translation services we can. We’ve selected the top Hina translators from across the Cameroonian commune of Hina, with team members representing each of the Besleri, Jingjing, and Gamdugun dialects.
