Kinyarwanda Translation Services

Meticulous Kinyarwanda Semantic Assistance

Kinyarwanda (also known as Rwanda or Rwandan) is one of the three official languages in Rwanda, the other two being French and English. Of the three, Kinyarwanda is by far the most widely spoken in this country. It is also widespread in Uganda, Burundi, Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Additionally, owing to the many Rwandan refugees scattered around the world, it is also prevalent in Canada, the Netherlands and the United States of America. There are approximately 12 million Kinyarwanda speakers in the world. This very wide footprint, and growing international influence, makes it a popular language at ST Communications.

We have native speakers who use Kinyarwanda as their mother-tongue. They also have expertise in different specialist industries, such as mining, engineering, finance, marketing, IT, pharmaceuticals and petroleum. This means that you can have peace of mind that the professional working on your copy is accurately translating every subtle industry-specific nuance and jargon-heavy term.
