South Africa abounds with Afrikaaners who are decendants of mainly German settlers... but in order for them to all speak one language.. they used the one book available..
This was a Dutch bible.. and now they still speak a simple kind of Dutch that is easy to be understood by Dutch people like me :)
History is a funny thing!
Best regards, Robert
