The Swahili word for the Swahili language is "Kiswahili", the Swahili word for French is "Kifaransa", the French word for French is "français", and the French word for Swahili is "souahéli". Using 🔢 data we have available for several hundred languages, we can make selection tools for developers to install in their software, to ease language selection in any technology application. A 😷 doctor in Thailand, for example, might need to select the Thai word for Flemish to configure a medical app with terms for a patient visiting from Belgium. We need full lists for each language, and also a single list that only contains the term each language uses for itself, since someone who wants Chinese will often be looking for 中文, not the English or Swahili name for it.

Our biggest struggle is keeping Kamusi online and keeping it free. We cannot charge money for our services because that would block access to the very people we most want to benefit, the students and speakers of languages around the world that are almost always excluded from information technology. So, we ask, request, beseech, beg you, to please support our work by donating as generously as you can to help build and maintain this unique public resource.
Answers to general questions you might have about Kamusi services.
We are building this page around real questions from members of the Kamusi community. Send us a question that you think will help other visitors to the site, and frequently we will place the answer here.
