Afrikaans – a language spoken in South Africa and other southern African countries
More than six million people in southern Africa speak Afrikaans as their native tongue. Another 12-16 million have basic knowledge of the language.
This means that it is an important language in business, particularly for those with customers, contacts, and partners in South Africa, where the largest population of Afrikaans speakers reside. It is one of 11 official languages spoken in the country and is often referred to as “Cape Dutch” or Colonial Dutch,” as the language originated from modern Dutch.
You may also require translations to or from Afrikaans if you do business in Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, or Zambia.
