I just want to know the volumes of African languages related projects you guys have. If you have any project related to African languages I am ready to work with you. But some sites do not list African languages and most of translation software packages do not support African languages. I am not talking about French, English, Portuguese and other colonized languages. I am talking about pure African languages like Bushman, Somali, Amhairc and others. I know the numbers of user of these languages are very small comparing to other languages, but still there are people (million of people) using these languages everyday. I am looking companies and individual to work together to promote these languages

Try Atlas translations, in London, I think May 6, 2002


Well, I am sorry to say that I only know English and Spanish well enough to translate from/into them.

I think you should contact Atlas Translations, I remember they sometimes have Amharic and other African and Asian languages to translate from/into.

Good luck,

Contact Exotic Languages Agency, Orange, California May 7, 2002


You might contact the people at Exotic Languages Agency (ELA) in Orange, California.

They seem to be looking fairly often for people fluent (preferably equipped with suitable word-processing gear) in Amharic, Tigrynyan (sp.?), Somali, Harare, Oromo and other languages of Africa.

I have done several Arabic and Kurdish projects for ELA, and they are good people.

Contact data for ELA:
