Guarani

Guarani Interpreting & Translation Services

Aplomb Translations provides Guarani translation and interpreting services.

Guaraní (avañe’ẽ) belongs to the Tupi-Guaraní family of South America. It is spoken by 4.6 million people in Paraguay, Argentina, Bolivia, and Brazil (Ethnologue). These languages are spoken by people who inhabit a vast area in the Amazon forest in Brazilian states and Paraguay in the south, and from the Atlantic coast in the east to the Andes of Bolivia and Peru in the west. Despite their geographical spread, the differences between the languages is relatively small, making it possible for the Portuguese Jesuits to develop a língua geral ‘common language’ which could be understood by everyone. The history and meaning of the name Guarani is a subject of dispute due to lack of historical records. Prior to the arrival of Spanish conquistadors, the Guarani people referred to themselves as Aba ‘men’. The term Guaraní was originally applied by early Jesuit missionaries to refer to natives who had accepted conversion to Christianity.

Bolivia – Guarani shares official status along with Spanish, Aymara, and 34 other indigenous languages.

Paraguay – Guarani shares official status with Spanish. Around two-thirds of the Paraguayan population speak Guaraní. Paraguay’s constitution is bilingual, and school textbooks are typically half in Spanish and half in Guaraní. The two languages are considered equal.The linguistic situation in Paraguay, however, is quite complicated because almost nobody in Paraguay speaks ‘pure Spanish’ or ‘pure Guaraní’. Rather most people code-switch between Spanish and Guaraní. At one extreme, better educated and more urbanized people tend to speak Spanish with a small amount of Guaraní. At the other extreme, less educated and more rural indigenous people tend to speak Guaraní with many Spanish words. This latter mix is called Jopará. It is estimated that over half of Paraguay’s rural population speaks Jopará. Speakers of Guaraní who are not fluent in Spanish have restricted opportunities for education and employment.

Argentina – Guaraní is the second official language, along with Spanish, of the Argentine province of Corrientes.
