About the Ewe Language
The Ewe language can be found in West Africa, where it is spoken by approximately 5.5 million people. The language is native to Ghana and Togo and originates east of the Volta River in Southern Ghana.
Ewe is one of the Gbe languages, which is one branch of the Niger-Congo language family. The Gbe languages are all closely related and include Fon, Aja, Gen, Phala-Pherá and Ewe. Out of all the Gbe languages Ewe has the highest number of speakers, most of whom live in Ghana and Togo.
Ewe is a tonal language and has at least 16 dialects. These include Gbin, Ho, Vhlin, Kpesi and Kpelen, which all have some similarity to the other Gbe language Gen.
Ewe is a Global Language
Ewe is recognised as an indigenous language in Togo and Ghana though is not the official language of either country.
In Ghana, Ewe is one of eleven recognised national languages. This government sponsorship means that Ewe is used for formal education at secondary school and university level.
In Togo Ewe is one of one of the two recognised national languages along with Kabiyé. While French is used in all formal education in Togo, Ewe is still promoted for study and used for communication across the south of the country.
Ewe is not commonly found outside of West Africa, so we are proud to be able to offer both interpreting and translations services for Ewe. As one of the best providers of Ewe language services here in the United Kingdom we are well prepared to help you with a range of dialects, contact us today to find out more.
