AFRIKAANS TRANSLATION SERVICE



WorldAccess Translations provides professional Afrikaans translation services with English into Afrikaans translation services, Afrikaans into English translation services and Afrikaans into and from unlimited language pairs.


Afrikaans is an Indo-European language, derived from 17th century Dutch and classified as Low Franconian Germanic, mainly spoken in South Africa and Namibia, with smaller numbers of speakers in Botswana, Angola, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Zambia and Argentina.

Due to emigration and migrant labour, there are possibly over 100,000 Afrikaans speakers in the United Kingdom, with other substantial communities found in Brussels, Amsterdam, Perth, Mount Isa, Toronto and Auckland.

It is the primary language used by two related ethnic groups in South Africa: the Afrikaners and the Coloureds or kleurlinge or bruinmense (including Basters, Cape Malays and Griqua).

Geographically, the Afrikaans language is the majority language of the western one-third of South Africa (Northern and Western Cape, spoken at home by 69% and 58%, respectively).

It is also the largest first language in the adjacent southern third of Namibia (Hardap and Karas, where it is the first language of 44% and 40%, respectively).

Things to consider when translating between Afrikaans and other Languages

Layout designs - Text typically expands or contracts when translating one language to another.

English to Afrikaans translations and Afrikaans to English translations, will contract or expand depending on the subject matter.


Which Afrikaans do you need for your translation?

Getting the Afrikaans translation of your documents right can be very tricky.

Clearly there's only one Afrikaans language but as in most countries different sections of the population will have different ways of saying things.

Your Account Manager will discuss the target market of your document with you.

Clearly if your Afrikaans translation is aimed at teenagers it will need to use their phrases and maybe even slang.

Missing these small issues can be the difference between a successful translation and a bad one.
