Akan belongs to the Niger-Congo language family, sharing roots with major African languages like Swahili, Zulu, and Yoruba. It comes in four primary varieties, with each dialect boasting its own spelling conventions—but luckily, our translators are experts in Akan, so they can handle all four dialects and, if translating into Akan, can determine which dialect is most suitable for your project. Most Akan-language content is also brimming with proverbs and idioms, whose layered meanings present an additional challenge to Akan translators. Not to worry—our Akan translators are highly experienced in the art of transporting meaning between Akan and English with the utmost accuracy and cultural awareness.
