Afrikaans to English translator – How does it work?

Our Afrikaans to English translators are NAATI certified and have years of
experience in translating personal documents as well as community translations for Australian culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities.

To start the process, we’d need you to send us the document that you need to translate to Afrikaans. If you work for an organisation who needs to communicate with Afrikaans-speaking Australians, we’ll most likely suggest to schedule a telephone chat.

If you need an Afrikaans to English translator for a visa application, we’ll confirm the quote as soon as we see the document. You can just send us a photo of the document.

Whether you need a one-time Afrikaans to English translator or ongoing Afrikaans to English support, our NAATI translators can help.

Our project managers also work to assemble teams with the most suitable Afrikaans translators, community checkers, and graphic designers, as well as being available to answer any questions and provide post-delivery support.

Quality Control procedures for our Afrikaans Translator Service

The evolution of Afrikaans is a unique success story in the history of language development. Despite beginning as a dialect with limited prestige, it has grown to become the third most spoken language in South Africa. This growth can be attributed to several factors, including its simplification of grammar, and spelling as well as its adoption by various social and political movements within the African continent.

In recent years, Afrikaans has also gained recognition and respect as a literary language, with prominent authors such as Etienne van Heerden and Marlene van Niekerk writing award-winning works in the language. As Afrikaans continues to evolve and gain prominence, it serves as a fascinating example of how a language can adapt and thrive in new environments.


The Afrikaans Community in Australia


As the African diaspora continues to expand globally, so too does Australia’s African community. A diverse range of individuals has settled in Australia through both legal migration and humanitarian efforts. This population, however, faces unique challenges in assimilating into Australian society.

One issue faced by many African migrants is a lack of recognition of their professional qualifications and experience in their new country, leading to difficulties finding employment and fully utilizing their skills. In addition, there is a need for greater awareness and understanding of the diversity within the African community itself, as well as increased support for African Australians’ cultural and social integration.

Despite these challenges, the African diaspora in Australia continues to grow and make meaningful contributions to the country’s social fabric and economy. Steps must be taken to ensure equal opportunities and a sense of belonging for this a valuable contributor to Australian society.
