Going global

English is the gateway to a global market

English is the leading business language of the world. By translating from German to English you will be able to expand your business immensely and reach a broad and global audience. However, translating to English is not just about having your audience understanding your message, it’s about digging deeper in order to reach that one specific group that you’re targeting.

There are many differences between American, British and Australian English. This is where we come in! Our qualified translators have the cultural and local understanding of the language and will help you reach your target audience with tailored English translations.

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/inter”, “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’.  

Another important aspect to be aware of when translating from German to English are long compound nouns. In German, it is very common to group different nouns to make one new unique noun. When translating from German to English, this can reduce the length of the content down to 35%.

Language differences

UK English vs US English

The most common of language varieties in English are those spoken in the UK and the US. In terms of vocabulary, grammar, spelling and pronunciation there are so many differences when it comes to British English and American English.

Mastering a language is about mastering the details that make it unique. Many English speakers don't know about the little differences that separate British English from American English. As shown on the left it can come down to replacing an entire word with another one, but it can also be shown in minor details such as in the spelling. ‘Color’ and ‘colour’ are pronounced in the same way and the only difference is shown in how it’s written.

One could argue that British English will always be the most correct since American English derives from British English. However, languages are always in motion and develop over time and across borders so there’s no one “correct” way of doing it. These are all factors that should be considered when translating into English as they can easily be the difference between ‘making it’ and ‘breaking it’.

From global to local

German to English localisation 

As you probably already know, there isn’t really one single universal English language. Many English words and phrases can be singular to a particular area and would be as foreign to an English 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 English-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 English-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 German to English translators can deliver the right and appropriate content translating from one language to another.

Germany’s top 5 trading partners

Germany has the strongest economy in Europe and the second largest export economy in the world. Their solid economy is based on exports of high-quality manufactured goods along with strong trading partnerships with some of the major players in the global economy.

It’s worth noting that two of the top five trading partners for Germany are native English-speaking countries. In addition, The Netherlands is known as one of the countries of the non-native English-speaking countries where people speak the best English, making the majority of Germany’s trading partners English-speaking.
