The intelligence community allocates few resources toward signals intelligence in Africa, despite the continent's importance to counterterrorism, in part because it has too few translators who speak African languages, necessitating unconventional partnerships across agencies and with other nations.

The 24 second- and third-party partners have capabilities to work in 43 different languages. The decision to collaborate with a partner to exploit these skills, however, requires a cost-benefit analysis: What would the NSA gain from asking a partner to help them with a target, and what could potentially pose as a risk? Signals Intelligence Directorate management weighs these questions and makes the final decision about partnerships.
