German-Speaking Countries worldwide
most widely spoken language in Europe
German Native-Speakers worldwide
Germany, Europe’s Largest Economy
The German language is synonymous with excellence – from the engineering fields to the world of art and design. The language has extended itself to a number of corporate areas and has become one of the most important languages, not only on the European continent but across the globe. No surprise, that Germany states today as the biggest economy in Europe and the 4th strongest worldwide.
However, German is not only spoken in Germany and is also the official language of five other countries in Europe: Austria, Belgium, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg and Switzerland. The German language can connect you to more than 100 million native speakers and a total of 210 million speakers worldwide. It’s therefore the second most widely spoken language in Europe! In fact, being able to speak German provides a significant advantage to anyone wanting to pursue international business and is key to success on the European continent.
Similarities & Differences
German-English Language History
The German and English language are closely related due to their history. In Fact, German and English go way back: they both belong to the Germanic branch of the Indo-European language family, which explains common features in both languages. For example, they share many similar cognates: “Winter/Winter”, “Haus/House”, trinken/drink, etc.
However, even if the vocabulary can be very similar, German and English work in very different ways in many aspects. If some cognates seem to have the same meaning, they are in fact so called “false friends” (a word or expression that has a similar form to one in a person's native language, but a different meaning). For example, the German word ‘also’ doesn’t have the same meaning as the English word ‘also’.
Levels of Formality
Formal vs. Informal
When you speak German, like any other language, it’s important to know who you are talking to or who your target audience is in order to address them in the right way. Whether you find yourself in a professional context, or a more informal one, the situation will determine your tone of voice and you won’t necessarily use the same level of formality.
In German you have the option between two singular forms of “you” - either the formal “Sie” or the informal “du”. The use of one or the other depends on different criteria, like age or rank, but when addressing a german audience it’s often better to stick with the formal “Sie”, as Germans usually value the mark of respect.
Then again, the world is changing and so is the new generation. Nowadays, the use of "du" in German is a lot more flexible than it used to be.

From Global to Local
English to German Localisation
As you probably already know, there isn’t really one single universal German language. Many German words and phrases can be singular to a particular area and would be as foreign to a German speaker from outside the region as words from Mandarin or Ewokese. On the other side, there are some words that may be used in all German-speaking countries, but which have entirely different meanings depending on which of those countries you’re in.
As such, if you’re planning on expanding your business to one of these German-speaking countries, it’s important to employ the right language. You want the language to sound as natural as possible to the locals, but you also want to avoid mistakenly offending anyone. Therefore, only qualified and experienced English to German translators can deliver the right and appropriate content translating from one language to another.
Standard German vs. Austrian German vs. Swiss German
Though Germany is by far the largest German-speaking country in the world, it’s not the only one. Out of the 100 Million native German speakers worldwide, 8 millions of them live in Austria, and approximately 5 Million of them live in German Switzerland. However, making the assumption that all these countries speak the same exact German is fundamentally wrong.
Although German speakers in both countries will have no problem understanding somebody speaking standard German to a decent extent, it’s essential to recognise that the German spoken in Austria and Switzerland differs in many aspects as well. As shown in the table it can come down to replacing an entire word with another one but it can also be shown in minor details such as the spelling. These are all important factors that should be considered when translating from one language to another.
|Swiss German||Austrian German||Standard German|
|En guete||An Guaden||Einen Guten Appetit|
|Bai Zamm||Auf Wiederschauen||Auf Wiedersehen|
|Vielä Dank||Hoassn Dampf||Vielen Dank|
UK’s Top 10 Trading Partners
Germany and the United Kingdom have been close for many years. The two nations are linked by strong bonds of culture and friendship. That being said, they are also very close business partners, which explains why their economies are interlinked. As we can see, Germany is in second place of the United Kingdom’s top import partners and is worth 46,7 billion dollars exports sales (9,6% of total UK exports). Nevertheless, the german market goes beyond Germany : Switzerland and Belgium, which appear in the UK's top 10 Trading Partners, also count a lot of Native German-Speakers. Altogether, these 3 countries represent about 19% of total UK exports.
