Lingala language translation and interpreting service

Lingala (Ngala) is a Bantu language spoken throughout the north-western part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and a large part of the Republic of the Congo, as well as to some degree in Angola and the Central African Republic. It is believed that there are approximately 10 million Lingala speakers worldwide.

European missionaries called the language Bangala, after the Bangala people, or Lingala. The latter was intended to mean ‘(language) of the Bangala’ or ‘of the River’ (that is, ‘Riverine Language’). However, this was a mistake, the proper Bangi form should have been Kingala.
