Highly Skilled Hausa Mother-Tongue Translators to Ensure Accurate Communication and Meaning
Our Hausa translators are rigorously screened to determine their experience and knowledge. The vast majority are based in the target countries, such as Niger, Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad and Ghana. Due to subtle differences, we must use the right translator to ensure we do the best job for our clients. Sometimes it might be necessary to tweak depending on the document’s target audience and purpose.
That is why we may want to get to know more about your project than the number of words or the file type before we assign a team member.
Within Hausa, it’s essential to appreciate the language’s different dialects. For example:
- The Kano dialect (Kananci) is the standard, but there is also
- Eastern Hausa dialects such as Kananci, Bausanchi, Dauranchi, Gudduranci and Hadejanci,
- Western Hausa dialects, including Sakkwatanci, Kutebanci, Katsinanci, Arewanci, Kurfey and Katsina,
- Northern Hausa dialects like Arewa and Arawci,
- and even a Ghanaian Hausa dialect (Gaananci).
However, let us deal with dialects and getting the translation right. That is our job.

About the Hausa Language
Hausa is the Chadic language with the most significant number of speakers, spoken as a first language by about 24 million people and as a second language by about 15 million more. Hausa is an official language in northern Nigeria and a “national language” in Niger.
Native speakers of Hausa, the Hausa people are primarily found in the African country of Niger and the north of Nigeria. Still, the language is widely used as a lingua franca (similar to Swahili in East Africa) in a much more significant swathe of West Africa (Accra, Abidjan, Dakar, Lomé, Cotonou, Bamako, Conakry, Ouagadougou, etc.) and Central Africa (Douala, Yaoundé, Maroua, Garoua, N’djaména, Bangui, Libreville, etc.), particularly amongst Muslims.
