Overcome Language Barriers with Our Hausa Translation Services
West Africa exhibits extreme linguistic diversity, with Nigeria being home to more than 500 different languages. Since national borders were drawn up by colonial powers with little regard for the different people groups of the region, language groups also commonly stretch beyond country limits. Such is the case with Hausa, estimated to be spoken by around 150 million people in parts of Nigeria, Niger, Chad, Cameroon, Ghana, Togo, and Benin. Though undeservedly obscure on the world stage, Hausa is one of the world’s most spoken languages.
Though West Africa has faced its fair share of hardships throughout the 20th and 21st centuries, the region is nonetheless blooming. As more and more West Africans step out of poverty and their national economies grow, West Africa is becoming a more and more enticing destination for expanding commercial activity. Simultaneously, of course, West Africans are increasingly moving their businesses outward, looking to conquer a share of the global market. Let the Hausa translation team at ProofreadingServices.com help. We can translate from English to Hausa or from Hausa to English to help you reach your goals.

Hausa Translation Experts Working for You
As an Afro-Asiatic language, Hausa is related to Arabic, Hebrew, and Amharic. However, unlike these famous Semitic languages, Hausa occupies the Chadic branch of the language family and is primarily spoken as a native language in Nigeria and Niger. Hausa is a tonal language with a complex and irregular system for the pluralization of nouns, with 20 different classes. Most unique, however, is the pronoun system—Hausa expresses tense, aspect, and mood through different pronouns, giving the language an extremely large repertoire of pronouns.
Hausa also uses proverbs and idiomatic language extensively, which can render translation difficult. Not to worry—our Hausa translation team is staffed with seasoned experts who can reliably capture the nuance of Hausa-language content for translation. We can also incorporate idiomatic language to produce natural-sounding translations into Hausa.
