French - Congolese Swahili- Lingala- Nande- English

Clear information in the right language and consistent use of terminology helps minimize confusion and improves communication. This glossary will help anyone working on the humanitarian response in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to communicate more effectively. This glossary contains health, nutrition and bereavement terminology in French, Congolese Swahili, Lingala, Nande and English. It is an evolving resource that we will expand over time to include more terms and languages.

It is essential that interpreters, translators, and humanitarian staff use consistent, accurate, and easily understood words in local languages to convey humanitarian concepts. We hope this glossary will help them do so.

We are proactively seeking feedback on our glossary. Let us know if there is a term which you feel should be changed to improve comprehension or to avoid negative connotations. Please share your feedback on this glossary with us using this form.
