Swahili

“Hapana marefu yasio na mwisho.”

There is no distance that has no end. (Swahili Proverb)

 

Any work in East Africa necessarily involves Swahili. Its relevance is especially high in Tanzania and Kenya and in many regions you will be able to reach much more audience through Swahili than English.

I love Swahili and offer you my professional support in a variety of fields.

I’ve been studying Swahili at university level since 2011. I have spent more than one year in different regions of East Africa and hold an excellent language certificate from the State University of Zanzibar. Find out more about my background here.

I am able to communicate a wide range of topics in Swahili such as business, politics, history, health, culture, literature and many more. I also work as a freelance Swahili teacher.

Range of services

  • Translations (translating English, German or French documents to Swahili and vice versa, movie subtitling etc.)
  • Interpreting (meetings, business trips, assistance in conducting field studies etc.)
  • Swahili classes (for private individuals or companies and organizations)
  • …whatever you need!
