Somali is the official language of Somalia and independent Somaliland (Northern Somalia) the language is an Eastern Cushitic language belonging to the Afro-Asiatic language family. There are two main related languages Afar and Oromo, and three main dialects Northern Somali, Benaadir (Coastal Somali), and Af-ashraaf (Ashraaf).

The primary dialect is Northern Somali, and translators are consistently in demand for their services for this dialect, thus there have emerged more employment opportunities within London Translation Agencies such as Lingoservice Translations over the last few years. Northern Somali dialect is the basis for “Standard” Somali.

Certified Somali Translators

Somali is a well-documented and studied language, as it is one of the Cushitic languages. Somali is also known as Af-Soomaali and Af-Maxaad Tiri. Approximately eight Million people speak Somali in Somalia and independent Somaliland (Northern Somalia) as it is the official language of these two countries.

Somali is also widely spoken outside of Somalia and Somaliland by approximately five million people. The countries with the highest populations of Somali speakers outside of Somalia and Somaliland are the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Kenya, Ethiopia, and Djibouti.

Within the UK, London has the highest population per square mile of Somali speakers. Lingoservice is recognising the need for hiring more Native Somali translators and Interpreters as the demand grows.

There is also a large population of speakers in Italy, Finland, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. Most speakers of Somalia are typically multilingual, and a large proportion of Somali speakers, outside of North Africa speak Arabic and Italian.
