I’ve been looking for an English to Afrikaans translation web site…

Since my home language isn’t Afrikaans, and I sometimes get challenged with Grade 5 Afrikaans homework – an online tool is often the last resort.  I’ve found a couple – it’s always useful to have “a second opinion” and these are the ones that I use:

Google Translate:

Interpret.co.za:

Go to the bottom of the page and enter your phrase to be translated.
I see that there’s a limit of 400 words that can be translated – then it stops translating and gives “... A MAXIMUM OF 400 WORDS TRANSLATED!“  Not very nice… :(

This site also has a nice “Chat slang dictionary”, which is very useful when looking up abbreviations or acronyms like “WTH = what/who the heck?” and “ATEOTLYWBAT = at the end of this lesson you will be able to” and more…

  1. Google Translate has a loooooooooooong way to go with Thai, but it is becoming feature rich so hopefully the translations will catch up. Eventually.
