Afrikaans is one of South Africa's 11 official languages. It developed from the Dutch of the settlers of the region in the 17th century and is now seen as an independent language thanks to the separate development of the two languages over the centuries.
Afrikaans is spoken by around 7 million people in South Africa and a small number in Namibia as well as a number of communities in other African nations and ex-pats around the world.
Afrikaans doesn't present many difficulties - apart from translating relevant concepts - and is very similar to the approach for Dutch.
Google Suid-Afrika is the most popular search engine, with 92% market share.
