We’re Now Debuting Our Iramba Translation Services

Africa is one of the most diverse places on the planet—which shouldn’t come as a surprise when you consider the continent is the genesis of the entire human species. All across Africa, disparate ethnolinguistic groups with entirely different languages and cultures live side by side, united under the same national flag, even if they have little else in common. Most countries in Africa boast at least a dozen indigenous languages, with most home to several dozen or more. The African country with the most languages is Nigeria, with an impressive 525 languages—but with more than 100 native languages, Tanzania stands as the most linguistically diverse country in East Africa.

Among the 100+ languages in Tanzania, we find Iramba, spoken by around 680,000 people in the diverse country. Since Tanzania has a population of about 61 million, this means a bit more than 1% of the population is a native Iramba speaker. Iramba speakers are known as the Nilamba people, which doubles as an alternative name for the language. But even though Iramba is a major language in Tanzania, with influence in its local region, it has little presence on the global stage, causing most translation firms to gloss over it. At, we proudly serve Iramba, and we’re presenting our new Iramba translation team today.

Discovering Tanzania’s Iramba language

The Nilamba people—and, accordingly, their Iramba language—are found in the heart of Tanzania, in the central Singida Region, specifically in the Iramba District in the northeast of the administrative region. Because of the complicated prefix system of Bantu languages, as well as the lack of distinction between the phonemes r and l, the language is recognized under a plethora of names, including Nilamba, Niramba, Nilyamba, Nyilamba, Ikinilamba, Ikiniramba, Ilamba, Iramba, Kinilamba, Kiniramba, and Nilambari.

Iramba is spoken not just by the Nilamba people but also by a smaller, related ethnic group called the Iamba, whose Iramba dialect differs mildly from its predominant form. A nearby language called Isanzu is sometimes counted as an Iramba dialect, as well. Iramba belongs to the Bantu language subfamily, which means it features the grouping’s infamously complex noun class system, which is similar to the grammatical gender you may know from French or Spanish but dramatically more complicated. In Iramba, each of the several noun classes is associated with a particular prefix or particle that must be attached to words that modify the noun, including verbs, adjectives, demonstratives, and more.
