Africar Group, the pan-African car classifieds platform in Africa operating in 22 countries on the continent is now available in 10 local languages in a move to improve access and utilization for local people and take on the diminishing Cheki brand.

With operations in 22 countries through its car classifieds websites, the firm says its dedicated to local people, and all these platforms which were available in both English and French languages have now been translated in local languages including Amharic, Somali, Hausa, Yoruba, Kinyarwanda, Swahili, Malagasy and soon Wolof, Zulu, Sotho and Swazi so that the users can easily access to them.

“Translating our different platforms means a lot for us as we focus on local people. We want them to easily access to our car classifieds websites so that they can benefit from this free service. In that sense, we think that it is key to adapt our platforms locally and that it makes sense for our users. We now reach 400 millions of potential users and we are the only one among our competitors to make such an effort and to offer them this service.” says Axel Peyriere, co-founder and CEO of Africar Group.
