We all know that some of the most important cases in South African jurisprudence were written in Afrikaans. In an effort to make these cases more accessible to non-Afrikaans speaking students, lawyers and the general public in South Africa, SAFLII has established a database of Afrikaans judgments that have been translated into English. It is available on SAFLII here: http://saflii.org/za/other/ZAENGTR/ . We have received many gracious offers from volunteers who have agreed to translate the Afrikaans judgments free of charge. However, as quality remains our top priority in everything we do on SAFLII, we request your assistance in proofreading the judgments that have been already translated. We also urge you to send us any translations and summaries in English that you may already have developed. Help us make these judgments available in English to everyone. Help us make this important step towards our vision of a comprehensive collection of free and accessible law in South Africa.
