English to German Translation
Regardless of their interlinked histories and significant borrowings from each other, translating between English and German is not a simple task. The nouns in German, for example, are gendered, whereas in English they are not. Even the sentence structure differs between the two languages, with German containing far more strict rules than English concerning the order of the word and grammar. Only translators which are experienced and well-versed in the nuances and complexities of both languages are able to make sure the translated content retains its authority and effectiveness.
While the traditional method calculated English to German translation services on the basis of their charges/fees by page or per hour, Vespucci Languages has a simple and easy to calculate per word pricing system which is done with the help of sophisticated CAT tools. This way, our customers can be assured of the price they will pay before any work has even begun. Pricing made simple.
German language facts
German is a West Germanic language which is closely related to other languages of the same family such as English, Afrikaans and Dutch. Despite geo proximity, the German language is significantly distinct from European Romance languages like French, Italian and Spanish.
With more than 100 million native speakers, German is the most widely spoken language in Europe, beating out Italian, Spanish, French and even English.
The German language originates from proto-German, which dates as far back as 500 B.C.
Although most German speakers are based in Germany, German is also an official language of five other countries: Austria, Belgium, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg and Switzerland.
German language is the third most widely taught, just behind Spanish and French, with over 15 million language learners worldwide.
Because of their close relation, German and English share over half of their vocabulary.
German outside of Germany
Despite majority of German speakers residing in Germany, it is important to remember that the language can also be heard in other areas, including in Austria (roughly 8 million German speakers) and parts of Switzerland (roughly 5 million speakers).
Standard German, Swiss German and Austrian German are generally mutually intelligible, despite a significant number of vocabulary differences. A particularly noticeable distinction between Standard German and Swiss German is the latter’s adoption of the English terms when it comes to technological innovations. For example, Swiss German speakers have adopted to the English word “harddisk” (capitalized to “Harddisk”), whereas in standard German, the word used is “Festplatte”.
Speakers of the language English will be familiar with a number of German words, without even realising. German loanwords include commonly used terms such as frankfurter, hamburger, rucksack, zeitgeist and doppelganger as well as less common terms such as ersatz (a substitute, usually of inferior quality), verboten (something forbidden) and schadenfreude (taking pleasure from the misfortune of others).
The shared origins of German and English, as well as the adoption of cultural artefacts, food and concepts originating in Germany, have led to this borrowing.
English to German Translation
Translation text expansion
The German language is known for its long compound words, usually created to be used in place of a sequence of smaller words (for example, “Freundschaftsbezeugungen” which refers to demonstrations of friendship). One result of this is that text translated from English into German can be up to 35% lengthier than the original text. This can have a considerable impact on design, meaning things such as taglines, navigation menus and displays may need to be altered. This is one that should always be kept a note of when translating between English and German.
Formal vs. informal speech
German has two forms of speech: formal and informal. Which one is used depends on the person being addressed and the level of politeness the setting or situation calls for. Although the informal form may be acceptable / appropriate in some contexts, it’s generally best to stick to the formal form when addressing a German audience.
