As many of the translations in the list above are user submitted, it's quite possible for there to be mistakes on the page. If you speak Afrikaans and have a correction you'd like to share, feel free to leave a message below. Thanks again for any help you can provide.

The Fine Print

I don't speak Afrikaans myself, so there could be mistakes in the translations. Most of what is here is user-submitted, but I do try to check for accuracy and make corrections as I can. Thanks for your understanding.
