Notably, isiXhosa is spoken by nearly four-fifths (79%) of the Eastern Cape and a quarter (25%) of the Western Cape provinces.

Similarly, when you choose to translate your documents into Afrikaans, the third most spoken language in South Africa, you can reach approximately 14% of the national population, equivalent to around 6.9 million people as of 2011. Afrikaans is widely spoken in the Western Cape (50%), Eastern Cape (11%), Northern Cape (54%), and Free State (13%) provinces. It is also the second most spoken language in the City of Tshwane. By utilizing our Afrikaans translation services, you can effectively engage with these regions and communities.
It's important to note that English speakers represent less than a tenth (9.8%) of the South African population. By translating your documents into Afrikaans and isiXhosa, you make them accessible to an additional 30% of the country's population in their home languages. This means that your translated materials will reach approximately three times more South Africans than English documents alone, allowing you to connect with a broader audience and achieve greater impact.
