trilingual
And it also does not mention that the exclusion of Afrikaans is probably
unconstitutional - the language treatment norms of the SA constitution
requires and add-on (to English and Afrikaans) approach, not removing
Afrikaans. Peace in South African was established in part on this principle
in 1993.

What the article doesn't say is that Zulu is one of the closely-related
Nguni languages (along with Xhosa, Swati, and Ndebele), and Sesotho is one
of the Sotho-Tswana language group (along with (Setswana and Northern
Sotho).

The significance of this for the trilingual strategy outlined by the South
African health department could be that secondary translations within each
group to other official languages would be relatively straightforward. I'm
basing this assumption on the fact that translation companies in S.A. are
known to use this approach: First translate from English (or Afrikaans) to
one Nguni language and one Sotho-Tswana language, and then from the latter
two to others. (English would of course be translated directly into
Afrikaans, and vice-versa.)
