About our translator


ትግርኛ ኣብ ኤርትራን ኣብ ክልል ትግራይን ዝዝረብ ሰሚታዊ ቋንቋ እዩ። ኣብ መላእ ዓለም ብዝርከቡ ልዕሊ 7 ሚልዮን ሰባት ዝዝረብ እዩ።.

For those whose first language is not ትግሪኛ, typing and translating Tigrinya to English 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 Tigrinya to English. 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 ትግሪኛ 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.

If you have any other suggestions on how to improve Tigrinya to English, please let us know on our Facebook page.
