There are more languages spoken in India than you probably realize. Indeed, with more than 450 languages native to its lands, India ranks as the fourth-most linguistically diverse country on the planet, following Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, and Nigeria. While Hindi stands out as India’s biggest language, most Indians speak other languages as their native tongue, with many Indian minority languages boasting millions of native speakers—even if most people outside of the country have never heard of them. Today, we’re zooming in on one such Indian minority language: Bhili.
With roughly 3.2 million native speakers, Bhili is one of the biggest languages in India, but it pales in comparison to giants like Hindi, Punjabi, or Tamil, meaning it’s often overlooked both inside and outside of India. Nonetheless, many Bhil people, who live in various states in India, still speak their indigenous language, but unfortunately, the majority of ethnically Bhil people have switched to the bigger languages of their respective regions, such as Marathi or Gujarati. As a result, most translation agencies are hesitant to offer Bhili translation services, but here at TranslationServices.com, we’re proud to serve the Bhili people and anyone else looking for high-quality Bhili translation services with our brand-new Bhili translation team.

Let’s dive a little deeper into the Bhili language.
So, where exactly in India is Bhili spoken, anyway? The Bhil people are the indigenous inhabitants of a large swath of territory in northwestern India, comprising parts of the states of Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Maharashtra, as well as the union territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli and Daman and Diu. In fact, close to 40% of inhabitants in Dadra and Nagar Haveli speak Bhili as their first language. For more than 30 years, there have been demands for the creation of a Bhil state, Bhil Pradesh, but as of 2023, the proposed state remains theoretical.
Spoken in various states by different groups of Bhil people, Bhili is known under various names, including Bhagoria, Bhilboli, and Garasia. The language is usually written in the Devanagari script, the same writing system that Hindi uses, although Bhili speakers in Gujarat may also use the Gujarati script. Bhili is the star language of the Bhil language subfamily, all of which are related to neighboring Gujarati and Rajasthani, as well as Hindi, albeit more distantly. Technically, Bhili is also related to English, although the relation is so distant that it barely counts.
