The majority of South Africans is multilingual, they are able to speak several South African languages. However, those whose mother tongue is either Afrikaans or English typically do not speak indigenous languages, but are relatively fluent in each other's language. Most South African people speak English at a high level, which is fairly common in commercial and official public life. The country's other lingua franca (connecting language) is isiZulu.

siSwati, IsiZulu, isiNdebele and isiXhosa are collectively called the Nguni languages, and they display several similarities in both grammar and syntax. The Sotho languages, i.e. Sesotho, Setswana and Sesotho sa Leboa also have a lot of characteristics in common. (Continued below the image.)

Several of South Africa's linguistic groups descend from the same ancestors. However, as groupings broke up in search of independence and more exuberant pastures for their cattle, distinct variations of the original common languages evolved with time.

 

Among other fields and specialties, we regularly carry out translation and editing projects in the following subject matters: journalism (publications, articles, blogs, essays, etc.), books, marketing material, HR (CV’s, etc.), business, commerce, finance, medicine, pharmacology, environmental protection, technology, engineering, sports, sciences, telecommunications, as well as advertising.
