Translations/Interpretations

The NALRC has been providing quality services in the area of translation and interpretation of various African languages. If you need these services, please contact us. We have a resource list of translators and interpreters. The list is not restricted to African languages, and it is also open to anyone who speaks a less commonly taught language. If you want to be included in the list, please let us know.
