Tedim Chin language listing change

11 May 2021

To assist clients correctly identify and request Zomi Chin-speaking interpreters, TIS National has changed its current language listing. Research suggests that Zomi is an alternative name for the Tedim Chin language. To reflect this, TIS National has modified the Tedim Chin language listing to read Tedim Chin (alt Zomi [Myanmar]). The name Zomi is also used as an alternate name for other languages spoken in India (Vaiphei and Paite Chin). To reduce confusion, the country name Myanmar is included in the language listing referring to where Tedim Chin is spoken.
