Cape Town, South Africa, August 27, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Africa being the "last frontier" for global commerce, and with an increase of corporate investment in Africa by international corporations, the need for translating material into the many native languages spoken in African countries is on the rise.
"In steps Phrase9." Phrase9 Translation agency, which is based in Cape Town, South Africa, provides professional translation services to its clients worldwide, in a multitude of languages, but with a special focus on African languages.
"We have found that it is a difficult task for international companies and government institutions to locate qualified and experienced African language specialists who have the time and resources to take on large translation projects. A client may need a corporate document made up of dozens of pages to be translated from English into Igbo, Twi, Kinyarwanda and Swahili, and often within a specific time-frame. Phrase9 recognized this demand early on and we focused on employing an as large network as possible of qualified and experienced native speaking African language translators," says Mustafa Ghalib, the General Manager of Phrase9 Translation Agency.
He elaborated further saying: "Besides Arabic, French and Portuguese which are widely spoken in Africa, we find that of the languages most in demand when it comes to translation, Amharic, Swahili, Hausa, and Somali tops the list".
Mustafa said that all translators used by Phrase9 go through an academic and experience background check, before having to pass a translation test which then makes them eligible to do translation work for his company.
"We have been receiving a steady flow of work from clients in the US, Europe and East Asia, and they are all satisfied with the quality work that Phrase9 provides.
