About our translator

Tigrinya (ትግሪኛ) is a semitic language spoken in Eritrea and in Tigray region. It is spoken by over 7 million people around the world.

For those whose first language is not Tigrinya, typing and translating English to Tigrinya can be difficult. There are many websites and agencies that provide online and offline translation and interpreting services. Those services can either be expensive or if it is free the quality of translation is often poor and unreliable.

While it makes sense for paying professionals to translate highly specialized subjects and official documents - there is no need to pay for translating commonly spoken words and phrases. For this our online software can be used.

Our translation software gives you high-quality translation results for FREE. This is because it uses a powerful Google translation API to instantly translate sentences between English to Tigrinya. You can use our tool to translate up to 500 characters per request. But the good news is you can make unlimited requests.

While the translation result is not always 100% accurate - with a few modifications it can be pretty accurate. We have also integrated a Google Input tool which can be used to easily edit or modify the translated Tigrinya text. Besides, this software is evolving and improving every day and shortly we hope it can produce near to perfect translation.

We have also integrated functionality with which you can download or copy the translated text and either share them on social media or use on Word Processing software (such as Microsoft Word) for further formatting.
