English to Amharic Translation Projects
We assist organizations with documentation or marketing material (e.g. brochures, manuals, website content, PowerPoint presentations, product labeling, etc.) that are written in Amharic and require accurate translation into English.
Of course, in addition to English to Amharic and Amharic to English translation assignments, we can also assist you with the translation of the world's most popular languages to and from Amharic: Arabic ↔ Amharic; Spanish ↔ Amharic; French ↔ Amharic; German ↔Amharic; Italian ↔ Amharic; Portuguese ↔ Amharic; Russian ↔ Amharic; Japanese ↔ Amharic; Chinese ↔ Amharic; Hindi ↔ Amharic; to name but the most popular... We can source translation expertise for virtually any language pair.
Amharic Language Style
Our translators, editors and proofreaders render well-written and clearly understandable texts. We place a high value on rendering a finished product that is faithful to the language style of the original text.
Amharic to English Translation Projects
We assist businesses in finding the best available Amharic to English language translation resources – including experienced Amharic language translators (native-speaking Amharic if appropriate or required).
In our experience, a Amharic language native-speaker may not necessarily be the right translator for the job. (See: Common myths and misconceptions about translation.) Though a native-speaker may be preferable for certain translation assignments, having Amharic as a native language may not 'translate into' Amharic language expertise (pun intended). An experienced linguist with strong Amharic and English language translation credentials, in-depth experience and professional credentials, regardless of native language, may often prove to be a better choice.
Identifying and securing the services of the appropriate Amharic language resources is what we do! (Refer to our Amharic translation assignment process for information on our Amharic translation project management process).
In a nutshell, we use professional translators who have a solid mastery of the Amharic language (grammar, spelling, cultural nuances) and a solid understanding of the subject matter.
Once we are confident that the appropriate freelance resources have been identified and certain that we can honour the project deadline, we submit a quote for the translation assignment.
If we cannot secure the appropriate resources, we will do our best to refer you to Amharic translation sources of information that we have confidence in.

Amharic is a Semitic language spoken in North Central Ethiopia by the Amhara. It is the second most spoken Semitic language in the world, after Arabic, and the "official working" language of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia. It thus has official status and is used nationwide. Amharic is also the official or working language of several of the states within the federal system, including Amhara Region and the multi-ethnic Southern Nations, Nationalities, and People's Region, among others. It has been the working language of government, the military, and of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church throughout modern times. Outside Ethiopia, Amharic is the language of some 2.7 million immigrants (notably in Egypt, Israel and Sweden).
