History of Malagasy

Malagasy is the official language of Madagascar, and most people speak it as a first language. Although Madagascar is geographically close to the African continent, the malagasy language is not related to nearby African languages. Instead, it is related to Malayo Polynesian languages of Indonesia, Malaysia and Philippines. Linguistic data shows that Malagasy was brought into the islands by businessmen from Borneo.

Malagasy Language Introduction

Main dialects of Malagasy are Merina and Sakalava. And the standard Malagasy, the official language of Madagascar, is based on Merina language from 1820.

There are 6 pure vowels, 2 diphtongs, 22 consonants in modern Malagasy language.

Its word order is very unusual: verb-object-suject, very different from the ” suject-verb-object” word order of English and Chinese.

Specialist industry Malagasy translators

Strict QA process and proofreading

Our project manager will consistently follow through the whole translation process.

Frankly, we are seriously worried about the quality of translations provided by some other Malagasy translation providers, because we have been able to find many errors from their portfolios, which apparently represent their highest level of quality.

As you may know, there is an accuracy rate of around 50% to 60% for English <> Malagasy translations done by machines or software application, due to the basically equivalent grammar and expressions between the two languages. Therefore it is some vendors’ practice to do initial translations by machine, and then make some changes as necessary by a human translator. The readers may experience the text as “mechanical”, awkward and in short of literary grace when reading such kind of machine translations.

But poor translations will put you in embarrassing situations and will present your company in a bad light. If your clients complain about bad quality and wrong translations, you might end up loosing your clients.

CCJK never uses machine translations to save time and manpower, we promise our clients that their projects will be translated and edited 100% by our human translators and reviewers to assure top quality.
