Koongo Translation Services
The Koongo language is from the Bantu language family and is spoken by people belonging to the Bakongo and Bandundu groups. The language is primarily located in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and also the Republic of the Congo. Koongo is considered a tonal language which means it relies on the tones when pronouncing words. The fluctuation in tone and voice can indicate a different meaning for words. Due to the language being spread out due to slave trade, there are creole forms of the language in countries such as: Brazil, Haiti, Cuba, Jamaica, and the Dominican Republic.

There are a variety of different written forms of the language and different versions are used on newspapers, pamphlets, books, and in literature. The earliest forms of this language were written based on a Latin alphabet and script.
