Professional and Accurate Localization Solutions

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. Thus, 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 Shona language requires advanced AI translation technology combined with native, in-country linguists for a quick turnaround time.

Shona Dialects

Although there are diverse variations of the Shona language, standardized Shona language, the variation taught in Zimbabwe schools, is based on the Central dialects. In general, people of Zimbabwe use their own dialect when speaking, but use Standard Shona when writing. 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 Shona to English translations or English to Shona translations, it is essential to ensure the cultural appropriateness and local sophistication of every project entering or expanding from Zimbabwe’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 Shona depending on the project.
