Translation from Africaans
Until the first half of the19th century Africaans existed as an oral-colloquial language only. The dialect of South Holland became its basis. In 1910 after the formation of SAU (now the Republic of South Africa), the language did not become stronger as official, but that happened in 1925. It became one of the major languages in the country and studying it was compulsory.
Africaans native speakers
Africaans is one of 11 official languages of the Republic of South Africa, furthermore, it is not native for the majority of population in this country irrespective of skin color. Many of its native speakers do not identify themselves as “white” or “colored” and call themselves “South Africans speaking Africaans” or “Nambians”. The native speakers of Africaans and Dutch can understand each other quite well without interpreters and dictionaries. Today about 10 million people speak Africaans, 6 million of them are inhabitants of the Republic of South Africa. The language is also widespread in Namibia and among the emigrants from the Republic of South Africa in Great Britain, Australia and New Zealand, as well as in other countries of South Africa.

Eastern dialect became the basis of the literary language being the language of free settlers and peasants. The Cape dialect was, first of all, a language of slaves brought from other colonies, and servants of local population, at present many native speakers of this dialect are Muslims. And the Orange River dialect is a language of migrants from the Cape colony to the north, to present North Cape and Namibia.
