The Afrikaans translation agency

Afrikaans is a language which is widely spoken in the southern part of Africa. It is an official language in South Africa but a lot of people speak it in Namibia as well. Afrikaans is very closely related to Dutch. Its origins can be found in the various dialects of Dutch which the early colonists spoke on the Cape. Contrary to what many people may think, however, Afrikaans is not a dialect of Dutch, but an official language in its own right with its own official spelling and grammar. Many very old documents in South Africa are written in Afrikaans. A good interpreter or translator from Afrikaans into English is essential. Our online translation agency provides translations from Afrikaans into English and English into Afrikaans.

South Africa is a country which offers a good many opportunities. It has a population of fifty million and it is a very interesting market in areas such as food production, for example. About 13% of the population speaks Afrikaans as a mother tongue. It is also the second most widely-spoken language in the country. It is usual to translate advertisements into Afrikaans in the areas and regions in which it is the dominant language. A great many international companies with business interests in South Africa buy land, but buying a house in South Africa also involves buying land. so it is useful if old claims in Afrikaans which may be attached to the land are translated into English. Other companies which get us to translate their documents out of and into Afrikaans are active in the production, mining, and mineral industries.
