Local and International Languages

‘Bangula has been a leader in South African language, interpreting and translation services for over a decade.’

Han Sapire, Bangula’s active founder, briefs our translators for every translation assignment. She trained translators at Wits before starting up Bangula and is familiar with all the aspects that need to be addressed in the nuances of South African language translation.

‘We can translate these languages into and from English or into one other. The possibilities are endless.’
