Afrikaans Translation Services

With the long history of English to Afrikaans language translations there are a lot of resources to help translators preserve every detail in their work.

We will always preserve source a text's tone i.e. formal language or subject-specific terminology. Some conventions in Afrikaans differ from English. Sentence case is always preferred to Title Case for headers - being a common example.

Contemporary Afrikaans translations

All our translations are undertaken by a qualified and experienced first language Afrikaans translator with a minimum of 10 years' experience. We are a purely human translation service and do not use computers to recycle previous translations. Rather, we use MS Word's in-built Afrikaans spellchecker to thoroughly check all our translations are error free. We are able to issue a formal certificate for our work to include: technical due diligence, your translator's formal qualifications and their relevant work experience. These are often requested on legal and clinical translation projects.
