Basham Linguistics Center was established in the year 20010. The agency specializes in translation of English to other East African languages, especially Swahili. Others are Somali, Kikuyu, Luyia and Luo. Since its inception, the center has been involved in a number of major projects, one of which involved translation of a Christian study guide to Swahili. Inspired by its achievements so far, the center is mulling over opening international branches, starting with regional centers in neighbouring countries.
