Afrikaans is the home language of almost 7 million South Africans. The first Afrikaans Bible was published in 1933 and revised in 1953. This translation was followed by a second translation in 1983. In 2007 a special translation for the Deaf, Die Bybel vir Dowes (the Bible for the Deaf) saw the light. A further translation in Afrikaans Die Bybel: 'n Direkte Vertaling is currently underway.
