The history of the Somali language
It’s estimated that 15 million people speak Somali worldwide, and nearly 100,000 Somalis live in the UK. Somali has been the official language of Somalia since 1972, and it is part of the Afro-Asiatic language family.
The Somali language has heavy Arabic influences, however, it is also influenced by the French, English and Italian languages due to colonization.
There are also three main Somali dialect groups spoken in Somalia and worldwide. This includes Northern Somali, Benaadir (coastal Somali) and Af-Ashraaf. Fortunately, our Somali translators are well-versed in these dialects. This helps us ensure that your translation will resonate well with its intended audience.
We work with native Somali speakers
We source native Somali speakers to ensure that all translations and interpretations are of the highest quality. They also allow for an additional level of understanding of common Somali language phrases and cultural nuances.
Our translators often have to assist with highly sensitive and complex situations such as doctors appointments, police interviews and court hearings. This cultural awareness means that our linguists can assist and ease the more difficult of situations, so all parties involved are on the same page.
