The Kikuyu are the largest ethnic group in Kenya, inhabiting Central Kenya— predominantly the lands between Nyeri and Nairobi. With smaller numbers of Kikuyu people also found in Tanzania and Uganda, they constitute an important ethnic group in East Africa and particularly Kenya. And Kenya boasts the largest economy in eastern and central Africa, with Nairobi serving as a regional commercial hub. So, if you’re looking to expand business operations into eastern or central Africa, Kenya is your key.

Although English is widely spoken in Kenya, a savvy business will purchase professional Kikuyu services to cater to the country’s largest ethnic group. Translating into Kikuyu demonstrates respect for the Kikuyu people and their heritage and allows a business to foster a loyal customer base of Kikuyu people. Here at, that’s what we specialize in. If you want professional translation services into Kikuyu—or out of Kikuyu—trust us.

Kikuyu Translation Services from the Top Translation Professionals

Kikuyu is a Bantu language, like many others in East Africa, including Swahili, Kirundi, and Kinyarwanda. Kikuyu has several noun classes that resemble grammatical gender in European languages, and these classes are indicated through prefixes on nouns, adjectives, and even verbs. Like all other Bantu languages, Kikuyu is heavily agglutinative and predominantly uses prefixes rather than suffixes. Pronouns—subject and object alike—are often built into the verb, creating long verbs that are difficult for English speakers to grasp.

Despite its difficulties, around 7 million people across Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda speak Kikuyu, making it important to hire seasoned Kikuyu translation experts for your translation needs. Our Kikuyu translators have been in the business for years and know precisely how to craft careful Kikuyu translations that stay faithful to the original.

Our literary Kikuyu translators will help Kikuyu artists translate their novels, short stories, poems, plays, movies, and more for the global market. We’ll similarly help international content creators break into the Kikuyu market.
