The Acholi language is believed to have its origins in Eastern, Central, and Southern Africa. It is classified as Nilotic, a branch of the Nilo-Saharan languages, and is spoken primarily by the people living in northern Uganda, southern Sudan, and the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Acholi has several dialects and these differences are determined mostly by geographical location - for example, the regional dialect in Amuru differs from that in Adjumani. This language's main features include a Subject-Object-Verb order syntax, prefixes for noun classes, and verb conjugations centered around aspect rather than tense. Acholi also does not distinguish between singular and plural forms of nouns nor does it have any gender distinction when referring to objects or animals.
Besides localization variation, it has remained relatively unchanged since its conception - a testimony to the profoundness and resilience of Acholi culture!

Our certified Acholi translation services are certified in accordance with the industry standards and our attention to detail ensures that accuracy and fluency remain uncompromised.

The Acholi people are a Luo-speaking ethnic group primarily found in northern Uganda and South Sudan. According to the 2014 Uganda National Census, there are over 1.5 million Acoli speakers in Uganda, which represents approximately 4% of the country's population.
The Acholi language is also spoken by a significant number of people in South Sudan, although there are no reliable statistics available on the exact size of the speaking market in that country. Additionally, there are Acholi-speaking communities in other countries, such as Kenya and Tanzania, although their numbers are likely much smaller.
Overall, the Acholi-speaking market is relatively limited, but still significant within the East African region.
