Afrikaans Translation

Afrikaans is a daughter language of Dutch, which evolved from the 17th century Dutch vernacular spoken by the Dutch settlers in what is now South Africa. It is thus the youngest Germanic language.
It has a high degree of mutual intelligibility with Dutch, especially in its written form. About 90% of Afrikaans vocabulary is of Dutch origin, while the rest are borrowings from Creole Portuguese, Bantu languages, Malay, German, English and the Khoisan languages.
 It is one of the 11 official languages in South Africa, having the widest geographical and racial distribution of all official languages in this country. Spoken by about 7 million people as a native language in South Africa and widely spoken or understood as a second or third language, Afrikaans is the third most spoken language in South Africa after Zulu and Xhosa. As a second and third language it is spoken by about 7 to 15 million people in and outside South Africa. Afrikaans is spoken also in Namibia, where it is a recognized minority language and where it is widely spoken as a second language and used as a lingua franca, and in some parts of Botswana.
Afrikaans uses the Latin script.
The ISO language code for Afrikaans is af.
