    Default Cushite

    My client requested a Cushite translation. Does anyone know if this is an official language? Thanks!

    Reference: awl (aboutworldlanguages)
    Cushitic Branch | About World Languages


    Cushitic languages form a branch of the Afro-Asiatic language family. They are spoken in Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia, Kenya, and Djibouti countries located in the Horn of Africa.

    Somali is the only Cushitic language that enjoys an official status. It is one of the national languages of Somalia, along with Arabic and English.

    Oromo is a trade language used in Ethiopia for official government purposes, commerce, as well as by the public media and the educational system up to the eighth grade. It is also used in a variety of literature.

    __________________________________________________ ______________________________________________
    Cushitic (47 languages)

    Somali 12.6 million Somalia
    Oromo West Central 8.9 million Ethiopia
    Oromo Eastern 4.5 million Ethiopia
    Oromo, Borana-Arsi-Guji 3.8 million Ethiopia
    Sidamo 1.9 million Ethiopia
    Afar 1.4 million Ethiopia
    Bedawi (Beja) 1.2 million Sudan
    Hadiyya 924,000 Ethiopia
    Gedeo 639,000 Ethiopia
    Kambaata 606,000 Ethiopia
    Maay 595,000 Somalia

    Because West Cushitic languages have few vocabulary items in common with the other Cushitic tongues, some scholars consider them to form a separate branch of the Afro-Asiatic language family, called Omotic. The table below lists the most populous Omotic (West Cushitic Languages).

    West Cushitic (Omotic) (28 languages)
    Gamo-Gofa-Dawro 1.2 million Ethiopia
    Wolaytta 1.2 million Ethiopia
    Kafa 569,626 Ethiopia
    Bench 174,000 Ethiopia
    Aari 158,857 Ethiopia
    Koorete 104,000 Ethiopia

    Well it looks like I'll need to go back to my client and have them clarify exactly who they need to reach to. Thanks Vicente!

    Hello, affiligate,

    Are you new in the forum? Are you a translator?

    Cheers!
