Meet our German translators
Our team of dedicated German translators are the best in their field and put their passion for language at your service. They have years of experience and know the language in all its little details and complexities. With all of them being native-speakers and having followed specific training courses, they have certifications that recognise their language level and qualify them as expert German translators.
German language history
Experts believe the basis of the German language, Proto-Germanic, began to develop about 2000 b.c., as people began to settle in western areas of the Baltic Sea. One of the first ever records of the German language dates back to the 1st Century b.c., when the Romans came into contact with inhabitants of the Rhine-Danube area during their occupation.
The modern German we know today is likely to be unrecognisable from the language that the Romans first observed. It has gone through many changes, from Old High German (from about 700 AD to the eleventh century); Middle High German (from about 1050 to 1350); Early New High German (1350 to 1600) to New High German (from about 1600 to the present).
As with many languages, German has evolved with society and sociopolitical factors have helped shape the language as it is today.

Standard German vs. Austrian German vs. Swiss German
Though Germany is by far the largest German-Speaking Country in the world, it is 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 is essential to recognise that the German spoken in Austria and Switzerland differs in many aspects as well. 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 the spelling. These are all important factors that should be considered when translating from one language to another.
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. It is 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 is 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.

From global to local
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 an 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 German translators can deliver the right and appropriate content when translating to German.

German translation costs
When calculating translation prices and rates, we always look into each case individually. Complexity, volume, time frame, translation tools used, file type and other more specific needs all come into consideration for us to offer you top quality service at the best price. With German being such a widely spoken language worldwide, it is a commonly requested target language, and tends to me more affordable than some rarely requested languages. Of course, the price will also depend on the source language and the availability of translators for that particular language combination.All projects are assigned to professional translators that are experts within the concerned fields, and they make sure to do the necessary research to understand the purpose, target audience, context and tone of voice of the original texts, so that these key elements come across in the final outcome.
