Afrikaans is a West Germanic language, spoken natively in South Africa, Namibia and to a lesser extent in Botswana and Zimbabwe. It is an offshoot of several Dutch dialects spoken by the mainly Dutch settlers of what is now South Africa, where it gradually began to develop independently in the course of the 16th century.
Afrikaans to English and English to Afrikaans typesetting considerations
When translating from one language to another, the amount of text will either increase or decrease. Afrikaans to English translation often results in a 15% increase in text. English to Afrikaans translation will decrease the amount of text by approximately 10-15%. This is of course a general rule, but should be factored in when preparing copy that is to be typeset following translation. There are no other significant typesetting considerations to be made when preparing copy for translation from Afrikaans to English or English to Afrikaans.
