Even though Africa spans more than 30 million square kilometers, making it three times the geographical size of Europe, many people outside of the massive continent don’t know too much about it. Many people could only name a few countries on the continent, unable to identify most of the 50+ African countries that make up the world’s second-biggest continent. But one African country that almost everyone knows is Nigeria. This prominent West African nation is the most populated country in Africa, and it’s the most diverse, too, with its population of over 225 million speaking more than 500 languages among themselves.
One of the many languages we find in Nigeria is Ebira, which is spoken by more than one million people. While that barely makes a dent in Nigeria’s population of more than 225 million, Ebira is far bigger and more influential than most of Nigeria’s 500+ languages—in fact, it’s within the top 10 most widely spoken native languages in the country. Unfortunately, however, Ebira is overshadowed by other, larger indigenous languages spoken around it, such as Yoruba, Nupe, and Edo, which has resulted in a scarcity of translation services for the language. We here at TranslationServices.com are here to change that with our dedicated Ebira translation team.

Would you like to know more about Ebira?
Ebira, which is alternatively referred to by some as Igbira, Egbura, or Okene, is spoken in the northern central region of Nigeria. More specifically, most Ebira speakers are concentrated in the central areas of Kogi State, as well as Toto in Nasarawa State, Igarra in Edo State, and Abaji in the Federal Capital Territory. In addition, pockets of Ebira speakers may reside in parts of Niger State, Benue State, Kwara State, and Ondo State.
Nearly every language indigenous to West Africa comes from the Niger–Congo language family, and Ebira is no exception. To be precise, Ebira is a Nupoid language from the Volta–Niger branch of the family, but it’s famous as the most divergent Nupoid language, with significant differences from relatives such as Nupe. Ebira uses a subject-verb-object word order—typical for Niger–Congo languages—and displays minimal inflection, preferring particles to express grammatical meaning. Tense markers may even be omitted if unnecessary, with the distinction between the past tense and habitual present tense determined only through context.
