Multilingual publishing: an investigation into access to trade books through the eleven official languages in South Africa

The study aims to investigate to what extent Constitutional ideals of language equity have been implemented in multilingual publishing to improve access to trade books in South Africa. There are few African language titles available for adults, thus the eleven official languages are not being treated or developed equally. There is also a lack of language and book policy implementation that may be delaying the reaching of Constitutional ideals. There may be no clear-cut solution to improve the situation, but changes in various areas connected to book publishing and book reading are recommended over an extended period of time.
