Tigrinya translation


The Tigrinya language is used in Eritrea and Ethiopia and is an official language in Eritrea. It is used extensively in the border area between the two countries and is the most spoken language in Eritrea. This area has been struggling economically but the opening of several new mines in both countries and the coffee and cut flower sectors in Ethiopia.
The drought conditions in the area have led these countries to be subjected to regular famines with Ethiopia being one of the poorest countries in the world. There are international efforts to develop the country and to help to increase agricultural productivity.
There are large numbers of Tigrinya speaking immigrants that have moved to many parts of the Middle East and Europe seeking a better life. This has seen a large increase in the need for Tigrinya translation services as they attempt to formalize their new lives. The opportunities in the Tigrinya speaking parts of Ethiopia and Eritrea are also boosting the need for quality document translation as non government organizations, corporations and businesses seek to help develop the area, protect the local wildlife and improve tourism assets.
