Somali is the official language of Somalia which has an estimated 17 million speakers. While the majority of speakers are living within the country, there are large populations who speak the language living in the Middle East, North America and Europe due to emigration.
The Arabic language played a large part in the formation of the Somali language. Around 20% of all Somali words have Arabic roots. Somali vocabulary has also borrowed from other languages such as French, Italian, Urdu and Hindi.
Professional translators whose native language is Somali perform our English to Somali translation, and vice versa for Somali to English translation. Our experienced translators have an in-depth understanding of the Somali language including its spelling, grammar, and cultural appropriateness.
