The Khoekhoe language, or Khoekhoegowab, also known by the ethnic term Nàmá and previously the pejorative term Hottentot, is the most populous and widespread of the Khoisan languages. It belongs to the Khoe language family, and is spoken in Namibia, Botswana, and South Africa by three ethnic groups, the Nama, Damara, and Haillom. It appears that the Damara picked up the language from the Nama in Botswana, and that they migrated to Namibia separately. The name for Nama speakers, Khoekhoen, is from the Nama word khoe "person", with reduplication and the suffix -n to indicate the plural. According to Ethnologue, there were 250,000 speakers in the 1990s.
Nama is a national language in Namibia. In Namibia and South Africa, radio programs are broadcast in Nama.

Things to consider when translating between Damara and other Languages
Layout designs - Text typically expands or contracts when translating one language to
another. English to Damara translations and Damara to English translations, will contract
or expand depending on the subject matter.
Which Damara do you need for your translation?
Getting the Damara translation of your documents right can be very tricky. Clearly there's
only one Damara language but as in most countries different sections of the population will
have different ways of saying things. Your Account Manager will discuss the target market
of your document with you. Clearly if your Damara translation is aimed at teenagers it will
need to use their phrases and maybe even slang. Missing these small issues can be the
difference between a successful translation and a bad one.
