Skill Overview

English to Afrikaans Translation

Writing and talking is a skill that has passed through generations. With my grandfather as editor of the national newspaper, my Afrikaans teacher mother and my father working as a missionary and speaking Zulu fluently, language has become a part of life.
I am currently a professional film director and scriptwriter, constantly pursuing and improving my use of language.
Afrikaans is a language, fused from its Germanic roots in Europe and organically evolved with South African additions. A language that might sound Dutch, but not quite.
Let me assist by re-applying the written English word, to access a new Afrikaans audience.
