Why you need Samoan translation for your business

There are an estimated 510,000 Samoan speakers worldwide of which 246,000 live in the Samoan Islands. Whist Samoan is the third most widely spoken language in New Zealand, only around 2% of New Zealand’s country speak it.

Samoan differs considerably from other Polynesian languages and the intricacies of the language can be difficult to understand. That’s why a professional and accurate translation and interpretation service is indispensable for businesses looking to work in Samoa.

With New Zealand as Samoa’s biggest trading partner, English is widely spoken among the islanders and many Samoan business people are fluent in English. This does not, however, preclude the use of translation services. Accurate Samoan translation is still highly relevant. Furthermore, with the manufacturing industry accounting for over one quarter of the country’s GDP, our Samoan translators can offer industry specific advice for businesses looking to work in the region.

Need to translate Samoan to English?

Or perhaps you need an English to Samoan translation? Our translators can do both to the same high standard. We work in over 140 languages and can translate seamlessly across any of those. It is hardly surprising that Global Voices have a customer retention rate of 98%.


Does written Samoan differ from spoken Samoan?

Samoan distinguishes between formal and informal speech, making spoken language particularly difficult to master.

What are the main industries in Samoa?

The Samoan economy thrives on exports, particularly in the food industry. The staple products include copra (dried coconut meat), cocoa beans and bananas. Coconut cream and oil are also big exports.

Are there any cultural conventions that are tricky to negotiate?

A traditional convention to be cognisant of when taking part in negotiations with Samoans is that there is a preference for working together. Strong family ties means relatives will often work together, whether it is in business, sport or music.
