Tigrinya Translation Services

Tigrinya Translations for a Global Audience

Tigrinya (also known as Tigray or Tigrigna) belongs to the Afro-Asiatic Semitic family of languages. It’s most commonly spoken in Ethiopia and Eritrea, but there are growing communities of Tigrinya speakers all over the world, including Sudan, Djibouti, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Yemen, the United Kingdom, the United States of America and Australia. There are close to seven million Tigrinya speakers in the world, and that number is growing as the language gains recognition internationally. Its growing importance in Africa, as well as the international community, is just one of the reasons why ST Communications has included Tigrinya in its translation services.

Tigrinya in a Nutshell

While there are many different Tigrinya dialects, there is no standard dialect. This makes it difficult to determine exactly how many people actually speak a version of the language.

Tigrinya is written in Ethiopic or Ge’ez script, which is a syllable alphabet that is also used for other languages in Ethiopia and Eritrea.

After Ethiopia and Eritrea, Italy is the country with the most Tigrinya speakers.

According to Wikipedia, Australia public radio is proud to broadcast in Tigrinya via its Special Broadcasting Service.
