Afrikaans Translation Services

At Lingua Translations we offer Afrikaans translation services on a range of documents – from legal, to medical, to finance.

The African continent is rich in language and culture. It is estimated that there are around 3000 languages on the continent! It is essential that when translating into an African language, your translator has the experience and know-how. All our translators have at least 5 years’ experience, are qualified and registered translators, and only translate into their native language. This ensures that our translations are of the highest quality.

With many languages in Africa is it important to get it right! In South Africa, Afrikaans is spoken by 13.5% of the population, and is in the country’s top 3 most commonly spoken languages.


Afrikaans has roots from seventeenth century Dutch, but is influenced by many languages, including English, German, French, Portuguese and of course some African languages. Until the 19th Century, Afrikaans was only a spoken language, but now it is one of the major languages of Southern Africa, used in government, school and even national anthems. In 1933, the first complete translation of the bible was finished in Afrikaans.


Our Afrikaans linguists work across an extensive range of sectors: from business, legal and financial to medical, technical and many more too.
