Dinka Language

The Dinka language, is a Nilo-Saharan language spoken by the Dinka, one of the largest and most powerful ethnic groups in Southern Sudan.

With 2-3 million speakers, it exists in five major dialect divisions.

Jaang is also used as a general term to cover all Dinka languages.

The dialect of the Rek of Tonj is considered the "standard" or prestige variety.


It is further classified as part of the Dinka-Nuer subfamily, which is part of Western Nilotic, which in turn is part of Eastern Sudanic, the Nilo-Saharan subfamily with the largest number of member languages (95) .

Most closely related is Nuer, the language of the Dinka's traditional rivals.

Other major languages closely related within Western Nilotic are Shilluk, Luo/Dholuo and Acholi.

(SIL Ethnologue, 2005 data)


"Nilotic" indicates that its speakers are found mainly along the Nile, specifically the west bank of the White Nile, a major tributary flowing northwards from Uganda.

The Dinka live north and south of the marshy Sudd area in southwestern and south central Sudan in three provinces: Bahr el Ghazal, Upper Nile, and Southern Kordofan.

Things to consider when translating between Dinka and other Languages

Layout designs - Text typically expands or contracts when translating one language to another.

English to Dinka translations and Dinka to English translations, will contract or expand depending on the subject matter.


Which Dinka do you need for your translation?

Getting the Dinka translation of your documents right can be very tricky.

Clearly there's only one Dinka language but as in most countries different sections of the population will have different ways of saying things.

Your Account Manager will discuss the target market of your document with you. Clearly if your Dinka translation is aimed at teenagers it will need to use their phrases and maybe even slang.

Missing these small issues can be the difference between a successful translation and a bad one.
