Swahili Information

Swahili or Kiswahili (in Swahili it is called Kiswahili) is a Bantu language spoken along the east African coast from Somalia down to Mozambique. It is the official language of Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, the Comoros Islands and the Democratic Republic of the Congo and spoken by approximately 5 million people as their first language. As a lingua franca (a ‘lingua franca’, also called a ‘working’ or ‘bridge language’, is a language that ethnic groups speak that do not share a mother tongue) it is used by about 60 million people.

Language Facts

The Swahili language and culture is a mixture developed between African and Asiatic people. It originated from Arabs and Persians who moved to the East African coast. The word ‘Swahili’ means ‘the coast’ and was used by early Arab visitors to the east African coast. ‘Kiswahili’ is the Swahili word for the Swahili language; it stems from ‘sawāḥil’, which is the plural of the Arabic word ‘sāḥil’, which means ‘coastal dwellers’. ‘Ki’ is a prefix to nouns and means ‘language’, so Kiswahili then means ‘coastal language’.

Besides Swahili, we can provide voice over in the following languages:

African English

Somali

Kikuyu

Kamba

Luo

Meru

Taita
