ICanLocalize is proud to announce we recently added our 70th language to all our language combinations.
The 70th language is Swahili, which is spoken by some 140 million people:
“The Swahili language is a Bantu language spoken by various ethnic groups that inhabit several large stretches of the Mozambique Channel coastline from northern Kenya to northern Mozambique. Closely related languages, sometimes considered dialects, are spoken in the Comoros Islands and Somalia. Although only five million or so people speak Swahili as their mother tongue, it is used as a lingua franca in much of East Africa, and the total number of speakers exceeds 140 million. Swahili serves as a national, or official language, of four nations: Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.” (wikipedia)

If you have requirements for another language we are always happy to recruit, or if you are a translator in another language please feel free to submit an application here.
Our recruitment policy is tough. We require all of our translators to be native speakers of the target language so that they understand the cultural nuances. This is the essence of localization rather than simple translation which is essential for website and mobile app translation. In addition we require them to have proof of translation studies at Masters level. We have recently introduced an entrance test as well which is checked by our top translators and works on a rating system. This ensures that nobody can send us fraudulent documents and get in.
