Our Swahili translation team consists of
The Swahili language (also called Kiswahili) is a Bantu language spoken by various ethnic groups inhabiting several large stretches, totaling about 1,500 miles, of the Southeast African coastline. In these regions, Swahili serves as an alternative first language to various groups from southern Somalia to northern Mozambique, including the Comoros Islands. About 35% of the Swahili vocabulary derives from the Arabic language, as a result of more than twelve centuries of contact with Arabic-speaking traders, with additional influence from German, Portuguese, English, and French words over the last five centuries. Swahili is a national or official language for three countries – Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania – and is the only language of African origin among the official working languages of the African Union. While it is the native tongue to only 5-10 million people, Swahili’s importance is underlined by the fact that it is also a lingua franca in much of East Africa. As such, Swahili is a second language to an estimated 80 million people in three countries: Tanzania, Kenya, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Swahili, as well as other closely related languages, is spoken by nearly the entire population of the Comoros and by relatively small numbers of people in Burundi, Rwanda, northern Zambia, Malawi, Mozambique, and southern coastal Somalia.
