In the previous years we have seen an increase in demand for translation services in Africa with an increased demand for languages like Swahili, Somali, Afrikaans, Zulu, Xhosa, Sesotho, Malagasy, Amharic, Tigrinya, Hausa, and Yoruba. Twi, Ewe, Mandinka, Wolof, Fulani, Sepedi, Setswama, Luganda, Kinyarwanda and Chichewa. However, until recently the African market has been ignored.
Africans have realized the importance of their linguistic identity. Nonetheless, despite the spread of some well-represented African languages in media, secondary and primary school education, only a few are considered official at the national level, and languages imported by colonial powers still prevail. Fortunately, African countries are claiming more of their language inheritance, and are developing language policies aiming at multilingualism to reclaim and preserve rare African languages. This has been seen in countries like Gambia where the president declared that the country will no longer use the language of its colonial masters – English, in Zambia the government passed a rule to have primary school children instructed in local languages and also the East African community discussing Swahili to become East Africa’s official language.
Africa being a linguistically diverse continent it has made it had for most investors, funders and donors to communicate and deliver their services to the grass root individuals. And not ignoring the importance of multi-lingual marketing in day today’s business and in connecting with customers, most organizations and companies have realized the need for translation services in Africa and this has led to increase demand for translation services in Africa.
