The Pan South African Language Board (PanSALB) is a South African government body responsible for implementing language policy.


According to the PanSALB website (accessed 2007):
"The purpose of the Pan South African Language Board is to promote multilingualism in South Africa by:

  • Creating the conditions for the development of and the equal use of all official languages;
  • Fostering respect for and encouraging the use of other languages in the country;
  • Encouraging the best use of the country's linguistic resources, in order to enable South Africans to free themselves from all forms of linguistic discrimination, domination and division and to enable them to exercise appropriate linguistic choices for their own well being as well as for national development."
