A Bantu language, Shona is a major language spoken in Zimbabwe, and is spoken throughout Botswana, Malawi, and Zambia as well, making Shona translations essential for Southern African market access. As a language spoken by a multitude of ethno-linguistic groups, there are various unique dialects of the Shona language.
