SOFTWARE

Limited software is available in South African languages - yet through projects such as Translate.org.za a lot is done towards the translation of Open Source software. The idea behind this kind of software is the free distribution and of course open source (the programming is accessible by anyone) nature of the programs. This site distinguishes between SA language related software and language training software.
