Amharic Translation Services

Fast and Reliable Amharic Translation and Interpretation

Amharic belongs to the Semitic family of languages, which also includes Arabic, Tigrinya and Hebrew. It is the official language of Ethiopia, not to mention the millions of Ethiopian emigrants living throughout the world. In fact, the growing number of Ethiopian emigrants internationally has put this language on the watch list for business and personal translators and interpreters.

ST Communications has recognised this growing need and is one of a few translation service providers in South Africa that offers specialist English-Amharic and Amharic-English translation and interpretation. Wherever possible, our qualified translators and interpreters are native speakers, so you can be sure all translations are accurate to the last comma.

Amharic in a Nutshell

There are an estimated 25 – 27 million Amharic speakers in the world. This makes Amharic the second most widely spoken Semitic language, after Arabic. Most Amharic speakers live in Ethiopia, but there are growing pockets of the language in various countries, particularly the United States of America, Sweden and Canada.

It’s growing so rapidly on a global scale that Microsoft Windows Vista is available in Amharic, Google has added it to its Language Tools and even Wikipedia has an Amharic Wiki (Wikipedia).
