We speak your language

When seeking the assistance of an interpreter or electing to translate a document, it is vital that the appropriate language be identified. Some people may use a non-standard variety of a language such as a dialect, e.g. Hokkien (Chinese), Lebanese (Arabic). However, the distinction between some dialects and languages is not always clear, for a variety of reasons.

The following information is intended to provide useful general information regarding countries and the major languages/dialects/other languages spoken in those countries. It should be stressed that the listing provides general guidance only and it is not intended to be inclusive of all the languages and/or dialects that may be spoken, within a given country.
