German translation

Did you know that German is one of the most widely spoken languages in the European Union? It’s also the official language of Austria and Germany and one of three official languages in Switzerland.

Discovering the German language

To give you an overview of how important German is for anyone interested in pursuing a position in international business, here are some useful stats for you to digest:

  • German is the fourth most used language, spoken by nearly 95 million native speakers and a total of 210 million speakers worldwide.
  • There are a large number of German-speaking people in Belgium, Austria, Holland, Denmark, Switzerland, Italy, Liechtenstein, and Luxembourg.
  • Interestingly, the German alphabet has one more consonant than English, which represents a double ‘s’, . 
  • Consisting of three grammatical genders (masculine, feminine and neuter) and a smattering of extra-long words, German is considered a particularly difficult language for English-speakers to learn.
  • There are also many tricky “false friends” in the German language. These words differ in meaning depending on the language. For example, a ‘gift’ in English is something that we would give to someone on their birthday, but the same word “gift” in German, means ‘poison’!

What Are German translation services, exactly?

The process is one that involves translating various types of content, such as websites and brochures, from different industries – such as finance, healthcare and marketing – so that they are understandable and appealing to the German reader.
