Samoan language interpreting & translation.

Samoan is a Polynesian language spoken primarily in the independent state of Samoa and the United States territory of American Samoa. It belongs to the Austronesian language family and shares linguistic ties with other Polynesian languages. Samoan is an official language in both Samoa and American Samoa.

The language is written using the Latin alphabet, with some additional diacritic marks to represent unique sounds. Samoan has a relatively simple phonetic system, and words are generally pronounced as they are spelled. The grammar structure is characterised by the frequent use of particles to indicate various grammatical relationships.

Samoan plays a significant role in the cultural identity of the Samoan people and is used in various aspects of daily life, including education, media, and government. Efforts are made to preserve and promote the language, and it is taught in schools to ensure its transmission to younger generations. Despite influences from English and other languages, Samoan remains a vibrant and integral part of Samoan culture.
