Setswana translation 2022

Setswana, often abbreviated in English as Tswana, is predominantly spoken in the north west of the country. It is an official language in South Africa and neighbouring Botswana. MS Word supports spelling checks in Office office since 2016. Google Search is available for first language speakers as well as all government publications.

South Africa's sixth most-spoken language

Setswana is South Africa's sixth most spoken language at 8% of the population, over eight million home language speakers. It will reach more South Africans than English in the Northern Cape (33%) and North West (63%) provinces.

Additionally, Setswana is relatively accessible to Sesotho (Southern Sotho) and Sepedi - Sesotho sa Leboa (Northern Sotho) readers. International readers may compare this to the mutual intelligibility of Portuguese and Italian, and South Africans to that of isiZulu, isiXhosa, Siswati and isiNdebele.

Grammatically correct contemporary Setswana translations

Our English to Setswana translations follow the latest dictionary and orthographic direction, especially with regards to rendering the language accessible to the majority of home language readers. Translations must be technically flawless, but if the language isn't approachable readers invariably prefer the English version despite this being their second or third language. We will always aim to pitch the language just right, so your translations are an enjoyable read and your message is understood. All our translations are undertaken by an academically qualified, first language Setswana translator.

We are a strictly human translation service and do not use computers to recycle previous translations. MS Word's in built Setswana (South Africa) spellchecker thoroughly checks all our work allowing translators to focus on rendering the language. If requested, we are able to issue formal certificates for all our translated documents, stating technical due diligence, the translator's academic qualifications and their full-time translator experience.
