With 2 000 languages spoken across the population of 1.2 bn people, broadcasters and businesses often ignore most of their potential African audience when they ignore mother tongues in favor of western languages. The more inclusive approach would be to localize into one of the 10 African vernaculars that are spoken by more than 40% of the population.

We are leading a retelling revolution where we localize stories in mother tongue languages to create an inclusive viewer experience, whether you’re connecting content to Africa or connecting your African story to the world. People are embracing authenticity and originality – global audiences want to hear English with the accent of the country of origin and African’s want entertainment and factual content in their native language.

EarCandy offers services in 29 major Sub-Saharan languages as well as English, French, and Portuguese and a few lesser-known ones on request. Our in-house native language teams transform, localize, and deliver the best quality localized content in sub-Saharan Africa. Are we speaking your language?
