The Afrikaans language is the official language in the country of South Africa and is also a recognized language in Namibia and Botswana. The language is largely an offshoot of Dutch but also has some influence from Malay, Portuguese and the Buntu family of languages. The close relation to Dutch means that speakers of the two languages would likely be able to carry out a conversation without much trouble.
There are an estimated 23 million speakers of Afrikaans living around the world with almost 7 million of those people residing in South Africa.
Professional translators whose native language is Afrikaans perform our English to Afrikaans translation, and vice versa for Afrikaans to English translation.
