Xhosa voice over recording services for your project
Xhosa, or more precisely isiXhosa, is one of 11 official languages in South Africa and also in Zimbabwe. Xhosa is spoken by about 9 million people as their mother tongue.
isiXhosa is the language of the Xhosa people, belongs to the Bantu languages of the Niger-Congo language family and is closely related to isiZulu, the language of the Zulu people. The term Xhosa derives from the name of a legendary chieftain.
Xhosa knows several dialects, and, like most other Bantu languages, Xhosa uses the Latin script system and its own alphabet. Xhosa has a simple vowel structure but is rich in unusual consonants and is pronounced by so-called click sounds, which are formed in different ways by clicking with the tongue. Xhosa is also a tone language. In tone languages the meaning of the word changes with the change of the tone. Xhosa has two tones: high and low. The sentence structure in Xhosa follows the SVO scheme (subject verb object), like for example also in English, German or Russian.
In addition, Xhosa, like all Bantu languages, has a class system with far more categories than those commonly used in Indo-European languages (male, female, objective). There are classes for humans, relatives, animals, plants, objects and abstract concepts.
We have already implemented some projects in Xhosa language, including several telephone-based patient survey systems for the pharmaceutical company ICON.
Voice over recordings in Xhosa language are carried out in professional recording studios located in South Africa. We work with native speakers who have a perfect command of the Xhosa language and are trained professional voice talents.
