Ndonga, also called OshiNdonga, is a Bantu language spoken in Namibia and some parts of Angola. It is a standardized dialect of the Ovambo language, and is mutually intelligible with Kwanyama, the other Ovambo dialect with a standard written form.

Martti Rautanen translated the Bible into the Ndonga standard.[2]
