Afrikaans to English translation services allow you to type in a word or phrase that you need translated from the one language to the next giving you the closest possible interpretation. Once you type in a word that you want interpreted and submit it the information is sent and databases are searched to return a matching word or text closest. It must be noted that as these services are not operated real time by actual human beings that the returned text interpretation results may not be 100% accurate or reliable.
There is software providing Afrikaans to English translation services for complete website text as well as just the interpretation of just one word or phrase. This software will only translate the text found within web pages that does not form part of an image. For instance if the text is on a site as part of a .gif or a .jpeg image it cannot be translated. Same goes for words embedded within a Flash file, the software will not be able to pick up this text and will read it only as an image file.
Free translators are available online for help with interpreting foreign text but they will not always deliver the accurate results desired and will certainly not be as effective as software, tools and utilities that you have to pay for. Spend some time searching for a tool that will be adequate for your interpretation needs, most of the international ones have Dutch as the closest language which makes life even more frustrating when looking for a good Afrikaans to English translation services provider.
