HELPFUL LINKS

WHERE IS GERMAN SPOKEN?

The largest German-speaking countries are Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. However German as a spoken language is also prevalent in the Italian province of South Tyrol, and as a co-official language of Luxembourg and Belgium, as well as a national language in Namibia. Approximately 120 million people worldwide speak German, after English, it’s the second most spoken tongue (followed by French, Italian, and finally Spanish). It’s no wonder professional quality translation services for this commanding language are so in demand!

HOW IMPORTANT IS GERMAN?

German (Deutsch or Almanca) is a West Germanic language of huge international importance. It is one of the world’s major mother tongues and the second most spoken native language within Europe. What’s more, German is also among the most widely used languages on websites, and after English and French, it is also the third most taught foreign language. Whilst other languages are of note too, German has been highly influential in the fields of philosophy, theology, and technology and is the second most commonly used scientific language which adds even more status to its importance.

WHY DO BUSINESSES USE GERMAN TRANSLATION SERVICES?

Businesses that use translators to produce high-quality translations, and specifically German translation services, do so to reach new markets where German is widely spoken. By accurately translating their communications and other documents from their original text they can ensure their product and service resonate with their foreign target audience. As a business looking to globalize, you just can’t afford to miss out on such a large market, that’s why professional German translation services are so very important.

IS GERMAN AND DUTCH THE SAME LANGUAGE?

Dutch is a West Germanic language that’s native to the majority of the population of the Netherlands, western Belgium, and northern Luxembourg. Sometimes referred to as German Dutch, it belongs to the same family of languages as German hence its likeness, but it also has many similarities to professional English. For this reason, Dutch is often described as a bit of a hybrid of the two languages: English and German.

IS GERMAN TRANSLATION IN DEMAND?

Yes, it is! German translation services are in high demand for many reasons, including Germany’s status as one of the leading economies in Europe and it’s being recognised as a centre of industrial excellence and innovation. Being home to many international brands including engineering company Siemens, the largest telecommunications provider in Europe Deutsche Telecom, and automobile giants BMW, Mercedes, Audi, and Daimler, is another reason for the rising demand for German translation services, both from English to German, as well as from German to English.

WHY IS GERMAN TRANSLATION SO IMPORTANT?
As German-speaking countries are now playing an increasingly important role in the world economy, the German language has earned a reputation for being an efficient language of business which has made German translation more of a necessity too. The German language is also the second-largest mother tongue in Europe (after English which is by far the most spoken language in the EU, and followed by French, then Italian, and Spanish). No less than three countries use it as an official language: Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, and with an estimated 120 million people around the world speaking German, it really is no surprise that German translation services are so important.
HOW DO TRANSLATION SERVICES HELP YOU TRADE IN GERMANY?

Any company wanting to sell to a large international audience needs to translate its marketing materials, and with an estimated 120 million German speakers around the world, the need for professional translations of German documents has never been greater. The German economy is the largest in Europe, therefore businesses trading here can expand their customer base by translating their documentation into German. The increasing proportion of European companies that are now dealing with German speakers is reflected in the increased demand for both English to German as well as German to English translation services.

HOW DO TRANSLATION SERVICES HELP YOU SUCCEED?

It’s one thing to do business in Germany. It’s quite another to be successful there. If you’re planning to expand into this new market, you’ll want to make sure you’re prepared for the cultural differences that come with trading in another country. One of the most important parts of any expansion process is making sure your company is properly represented in the market through effective translation services.

HOW TO USE GERMAN TRANSLATION AS A COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE?

Business is getting more complex for companies around the world. To stay competitive, companies need to increase productivity, reduce costs, and localize their offerings which is why they invest in German translation services. Translating your content into German will give your company a competitive advantage, opening up a much larger consumer base. Indeed, many German consumers prefer to do business with companies that offer a multilingual interface. These consumers are more likely to buy from companies whose websites are in German and English.

HOW TO TRANSLATE YOUR GERMAN DOCUMENT?
Getting a document translated involves more than just turning it into another language and offering a one size fits all German translation service. For example, for official documents and legal paperwork, you may need a certified translation which involves additional steps including notarisation and attestation of your document to get it formally accepted by the law in another country. In the case of filling international patents in multiple countries, the translation of your IP documents and legal paperwork should be handled by a native speaker who is also a patent specialist in order to ensure 100% accuracy of your translated intellectual property documents.  
WHAT IS A CERTIFIED TRANSLATION?

When it comes to translation services, high-quality certified translations are usually required for official use or for legal reasons such as business documents or contracts. A certified translation is a document that has either been officially translated by a sworn translator, or that has been translated by a specialist linguist and then certified by a notary public (or similar certifying authority).

The declaration on a certified translation confirms it was verified according to the laws prevailing in the country where it is issued. When presenting a certified translation of official documents such as birth or marriage certificate, an Apostille certification is usually necessary in addition to the notarisation of the document in order to verify the legitimacy of the certified translations and to allow for the documents to be used in a foreign country.

HOW TO ENSURE HIGH-QUALITY GERMAN TRANSLATION SERVICES?

To ensure you receive the highest quality German translation services make sure to use a translation agency that is a member of the Association of Translation Companies (ATC) and that also holds the latest ISO certification specific to translation services; ISO 17100:2015. By only employing certified translation agencies you are able to better guarantee the quality of their translation services and that their translation process is quality assured. Accurate, high-quality, and timely translation services are exactly what businesses like yours come to Absolute Translations for.

HOW MUCH DO GERMAN TRANSLATION SERVICES COST?

The cost of German translation services can vary depending on many factors including what type of document you need to be translated, how many words are being translated, and whether you require certified German translation services. At Absolute Translations, we offer you a personal service, specifically tailored to your business and personal needs, at the most competitive prices.
