Tswana Translation Service Cape Town

We specialize in certified and standard translation between Setswana and English using only professional Setswana translators with years of full-time experience translating.

Setswana is an African language spoken in South Africa, Botswana, and parts of Namibia. It is the national language of Botswana, and one of the eleven official languages in South Africa. The language is sometimes referred to as Tswana, Beetjuans, Coana, Cuana Sechuana and Chuana. The language is spoken by approximately 4 million people in South Africa predominantly around the North West and Gauteng provinces, with other speakers largely based in Botswana and smaller Tswana-speaking groups in Namibia and Zimbabwe.

Setswana is one of three languages classified as the Sotho subgroup of the languages in the Southeastern Bantu group of the Bantu Language Family. The other two languages in this family are Southern Sotho (Sesotho or Seshweshwe) and Northern Sotho (sometimes referred to as Sepedi). Southern Sotho is spoken in South Africa and Lesotho, while Northern Sotho is spoken in the Limpopo province. The three languages are mutually intelligible, which means that speakers of these languages can carry on a conversation with each other, each one speaking his or her own language!
