Overview

Translation is the action of interpretation of the meaning of a text, and subsequent production of an equivalent text, also called a translation, that communicates the same message in another language. The text to be translated is called the source text, and the language it is to be translated into is called the target language; the final product is sometimes called the “target text.”

It is the national language of four countries, namely: Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
