About the Cebuano Language
Cebuano (or Bisaya in its native tongue) is an Austronesian language and is spoken by an estimated 21 million people in the Central Visayas region of the Philippines. It is the most widely spoken language in this particular area and the second most spoken language in the Philippines, and is similar in structure to other Filipino languages. Its writing system uses the Abakada alphabet, which is based upon the Latin alphabet and is comprised of 20 letters.
The four main dialects of Cebuano are Davaoeño, Northern Kana, Boholano and Mindanao Cebuano. These dialects may differ from each other significantly concerning nouns, pronunciation and regional colloquialisms, but speakers in each group can understand the important inflections of the other dialects. Nevertheless, our network includes individuals who are skilled in each of the key dialect families to guarantee your translations, transcriptions and interpretations accurately reflect each dialect.
