Afrikaans language support added to Microsoft Translator apps

Microsoft has added text support for the Afrikaans language to all versions of its Translator apps, including the one for Windows 10 on PC and Mobile.

In a blog post, Microsoft stated:

Afrikaans is spoken by over 7 million people worldwide as a primary language, with most being concentrated in western South Africa and southern Namibia. It is a derivative of Dutch which was brought to what is now South Africa in the 18th century. Over time, it also adopted words from African Bantu and Khoisan languages, and European languages such as Portuguese and German.

In addition to its dedicated Translator apps, the new Afrikaans language support has been added to the Skype translator feature for Windows on the desktop.
