Yoruba Translation Service

Yoruba is a dialect continuum of West Africa with over 25 million speakers. The native tongue of the approximately 28 million Yoruba people, it is spoken, among other languages, in Nigeria, Benin, and Togo and traces of it are found among communities in Brazil, Sierra Leone (where it is called Oku), northern Ghana (where it is spoken by urban migrant Yoruba communities alongside Hausa and local languages) and Cuba (where it is called Nago). Yoruba is an isolating, tonal language with SVO syntax. Apart from referring to the aggregate of dialects and their speakers, the term Yoruba is used for the standard, written form of the language. Yoruba is classified as a Niger-Congo language of the Yoruboid branch of Defoid, Benue-Congo. Yoruba is the third most spoken native African language.

The traditional Yoruba area ? currently comprising the southwestern portion of Nigeria, the republics of Benin and Togo ? is commonly called Ile-Yoruba or Yorubaland. The Nigeria component comprises today's Oyo, Osun, Ogun, Ondo, Ekiti, Kwara, and Lagos states as well as the western part of Kogi state. Geophysically, Yorubaland forms part of a plateau (elevation 366 m) bordered to the north and east by the Niger River. A large part of it is densely forested; the northern part however, including Oyo, lies in the savanna to the north of the forest.

Things to consider when translating between Yoruba and other Languages

Layout designs - Text typically expands or contracts when translating one language to another. English to Yoruba translations and Yoruba to English translations, will contract or expand depending on the subject matter.

Which Yoruba do you need for your translation?

Getting the Yoruba translation of your documents right can be very tricky. Clearly there's only one Yoruba 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 Yoruba 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.
