Se7en’s Official Languages…

April 1st, 2010 · 14 Comments

Fame comes in strange packages… a couple of South African blogs were contacted by the Department of Technology and Culture and asked:

“As a drive to heighten cultural diversity, for the last 70 days before the opening of the World Cup Tournament in South Africa we are requesting that certain niche blogs publish each of their posts in the 11 Official Languages of South Africa.”


Sorry guys, You know me – always good for a challenge. Posting is going to take quite a while over the next month or two as I will be spending most of my available blog time working on translation.

    […] Well we have marched on into April and the last couple of days have seen a lot of fooling around our house… Bitter tears to hear that April Fool’s Day is really just a day long and the amount of times that one adult can have a plastic cocroach in their coffee is actually quite limited. I was quite happy to see that we even caught a couple of you all!!! […]
