    I can tell you that the best online translator ever is The kamusi project. It was designed by groups of harvard and yale students as well as East african coast intellectuals where swahili is spoken in its purest form.

    im also a swahili speaker from Mombasa
    and the only people who know swahili are people in The Kenya coast and Tanzania everyone else speaks it as their second language and they speak it very badly

    Thanks for the compliment!

    Just a few minor points about the Kamusi Project:

    * The project started at Yale. Harvard had no role in it.
    * The project has since moved from Yale. It is now housed at the World Language Documentation Centre.
    * The new (and permanent) address is http://kamusiproject.org

    Thanks,
    Martin Benjamin
    Kamusi Project Director

    Try the Rosetta Stone. Easily the best program for learning any language. I’ve just started the Swahili one and it’s great.
