Google's social media yesterday had "From Armenian to Zulu...." Guess they did not want to exclude the rest of the world by only mentioning SA languages!

A while ago Microsoft released an Afrikaans-add on for Windows, so everything was in Afrikaans.

I switched back to English.

I'm sorry, but Afrikaans on a PC just doesn't work well with me.

When you speak Zulu, then you will see it in context (or corrected use).
Why should I apply a language's grammatical rules to the name of the language in English? I understand that the zulu word for the language is isizulu - but we're not talking zulu so why use the zulu word?

Oh, yeah this I understand, I believe it is still Zulu while in the English interface. I thought you were taking it as with the Zulu perspective.
