As soon the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Wachemo University and the Culture and Tourism Office of the Central Ethiopia Regional State, an essential preparatory step involved the translation of Kabena Language. Spearheading this endeavor was Mr. Abdulwase Mohamed, the Head of Kabena Special Woreda’s Culture and Tourism Office, who appointed a team of four translators for the task. The appointed translators included Ato Muze Hussain, Mr. Hadi Diga, Mr. Jilalu Fadlu, and Ms. Ramzia Shemsu, all tasked with the responsibility of translating the language in line with predetermined statements in both English and Amharic.

To ensure accuracy and adherence to predetermined standards, the core team from Ethio Language Box played a pivotal role in training the translators. Led by Dr. Sekhar, alongside Assistant Professor Eyasu Tilahun and Mr. Habtemariam, the training sessions provided comprehensive guidance on the translation process. Through these sessions, translators were equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to effectively translate Kabena Language while maintaining consistency with the predetermined statements.

The translation phase, spanning from April 22 to 27, 2024, marked a significant milestone in the collaboration between Wachemo University and the Culture and Tourism Office of the Central Ethiopia Regional State. With meticulous attention to detail and professional expertise, the translators diligently carried out their task, ensuring that the translated content accurately represented the cultural nuances and linguistic intricacies of Kabena Language. This collaborative effort underscores the commitment to promoting cultural preservation and facilitating meaningful communication within the region.
