Swahili voice over recording services for your project
Swahili, also known as Kiswahili, is the official language in Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda. Swahili is also spoken as a lingua franca in Congo, Burundi, Rwanda, Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia, Mayotte, Somalia and the Comoros. There are nearly 10 million native speakers and another 80 million people who speak Swahili as a second language. It is the most widely spoken language in East Africa.
Swahili belongs to the Bantus languages within the Niger-Congo language family. The main difference between Swahili and the other Bantus languages is above all the extensive loan vocabulary from Arabic. In the vast area where Swahili is spoken, a multitude of dialects developed, whereby the Kiunguja dialect, as it is spoken in Zanzibar, was the basis of today’s standard Swahili.
Swahili uses the Latin writing system and its own alphabet and belongs to the so-called phonetic languages in which everything is spoken as it is written. The sentence structure of Swahili follows the SVO scheme (Subject-Verb-Object), as for example also in English, German or Russian.
We have already implemented some projects in Swahili language, including educational videos for the United Nations (UN) and several telephone-based patient survey systems for the pharmaceutical company ICON.
Voice over recordings in Swahili are carried out in professional recording studios located in Kenya. We work with native speakers who have a perfect command of the Swahili language and are trained professional voice talents.
