English term or phrase: How do you say "relational database" in Afrikaans?
I would like to know how to say this term in Afrikaans. Even if Afrikaans speakers user the English term, I'd like to know how you translate the concept.

Afrikaans translation:verhoudingsdatabasis
Explanation:
I take it that a relational database is a database in which relations between things A and B are noted. The word "verhoudingsdatabasis" can, of course, also be used for "relationship database", and in rare cases, for "relation database". But you can't go wrong with "verhoudingsdatabasis"... it is both vague and specific enough.
