Somalian has three different dialects; broadly-speaking they are:
- Northern Somali
- Coastal Somali (Benadir)
Of these, the dialect spoken in the Northern-Central area is considered the most ‘accent-free’ or ‘Standard’ Somali. In other words, the broadcast-standard in the language.

If you’re looking to publish content in Somalia, having the right Somali voice over for your audio content will be crucial to breaking down language barriers and boosting engagement.
Somali is the mother tongue of 17 million speakers globally, and the official language of Somalia, spoken by 95% of the population.
Beyond Somalia, it’s a significant national language in Djibouti, and a working language in regions of Ethiopia, with close cultural and historical close ties between each of the areas in which it is spoken.
Further afield, there are hundreds of thousands of Somalians residing in Yemen and the United States alone, while the United Kingdom, UAE, Sweden, Canada and many other international regions have large Somalian communities in the tens of thousands.
