Professional and Accurate Localization Solutions

Kannada, sometimes called Kannana or Kanarese, is a type of Dravidian language spoken in southwest India’s Karnataka (where it is the official language), as well as Goa, Maharashtra, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, and Andhra Pradesh, making Kannada translations essential to access the Indian market. The Kannada language is spoken by a total of 56.9 million people in India and was awarded the status of “classical language” by the Indian government in 2008.

Linguistic accuracy, in-depth cultural understanding, subject matter expertise, and localization best practices are all necessary components in ensuring success for any product or service entering the local market. Additionally, high-quality, consistent localization solutions for the Kannada language requires advanced AI translation technology combined with native, in-country linguists for a quick turnaround time.

Kannada Dialects

Kannada is a fascinating language because it has significant variation between its written and spoken forms. Although written Kannada remains relatively unchanged, spoken Kannada varies widely. Overall, there are more than 20 different Kannada dialects grouped into 4 main categories:


  • Nadava Gannada (also known as Nadava Kannada)
  • Mangalore Kannada
  • Malenadu Kannada
  • Halakki
  • Komarpant
  • Havyaka
  • Ankola Kannada
  • Kundagannada

  • Chamarajanagar Kannada


  • Najangudu Kannada
  • Arebhashe
  • Rabakavi
  • Tiptur Kannada


  • Vijayapura Kannada
  • Dharwad Kannada
  • Gulbarga Kannada

Beyond these dialects, one’s social position can influence the type of Kannada spoken. There are three different types of Kannada that vary with social standing:

  • Untouchable
  • Non-Brahmin
  • Brahmin
With so many different cultural nuances that vary across regions, the importance of understanding local communities is critical for ensuring success in whatever product or service is entering the market. Whether you are seeking Kannada to English translations or English to Kannada translations, it is essential to ensure the cultural appropriateness and local sophistication of every project entering or expanding from India’s market. 

Through our in-country, subject matter expert linguists, and with over 20 years of experience, CSOFT understands the importance of distinguishing different dialects of Kannada depending on the project.
