We’ve Just Made Tawellemmet Translation Services Available



The Sahara is a vast desert spanning the width of Africa, the largest hot desert in the world. A harsh environment with extreme temperatures and minimal vegetation, the Sahara doesn’t boast a large population—but it’s the homeland of the Tuareg people, an indigenous North African ethnic group. The Tuareg people have a number of closely related languages that they speak throughout the vast region of the Sahara that they inhabit—and one of those languages is Tawellemmet.


With approximately 1.2 million native speakers, Tawellemmet is the largest Tuareg language, spoken widely in its communities in Mali and Niger. It’s a locally important language—in fact, Niger has officially recognized it as one of the 10 “national languages of Niger.” It’s learned as a second language by speakers of the local minority languages Tagdal and Tasawaq, and Tawellemmet is the language of instruction in some Nigerien elementary schools. But however prominent the language may be at the local level, access to Tawellemmet translation services is poor—which is where we at TranslationServices.com come in with our new Tawellemmet translation team.

Discover Tawellemmet, the biggest Tuareg language

Western Niger accounts for the majority of Tawellemmet speakers, with approximately 830,000 Tawellemmet speakers in the country, although you’ll also find a large number of speakers in eastern Mali and smaller numbers in northern Nigeria. The language is classed in the Tuareg group of Berber languages within the Afroasiatic macrofamily, so technically, it’s related to Arabic and even Hebrew. However, Tawellemmet’s closest relative is Air Tamajeq, which is similar enough to Tawellemmet that the two are often considered different varieties of a single language called Tamajaq.


Tawellemmet isn’t a simple language for English speakers. For one thing, it’s a verb-initial language, placing the verb before the subject and object in a sentence. It also places nouns before demonstratives, which are words like “this” or “that.” To denote possession of a noun, instead of a separate word for “my,” “your,” or other possessives, Tawellemmet simply adds a suffix to the noun to indicate who owns it. The language can be written in the Latin alphabet or the native Tifinagh script, so for a high-quality translation, you need a well-rounded native Tawellemmet speaker—which is exactly who we have on our team.
