German Translation Services

It is a common misconception among Anglophones that German is ‘only spoken in Germany’. On the contrary, German is spoken by more than 100 million people across the world. It is among the most widely spoken language in the European Union and is the official language of Germany, Austria and Liechtenstein. It is also one of the official languages of Switzerland and Luxembourg.  There are other German-speaking communities scattered around Europe, such as in Northern Italy and the Eastern part of Belgium, as well as communities in Eastern Europe, North and South America.

Germany is the largest national economy in Europe and one of the largest in the world. It excels in the production of automobiles, machinery, electrical equipment and chemicals. Germany is a key player in research, development and innovation on the world stage and is a leading country in the development of green technologies. German should not be overlooked as a language of business and industry that your organisation may wish to cater for in its business communications.

To reach out on a global level, companies must translate their materials, whether as a regulatory requirement or to reach out to prospective clients. Edinburgh Translators can assist with the translation of marketing materials such as your website if you wish to reach out to potential clients in German-speaking countries.

Regional variations of German language exist, with differences in vocabulary from place to place. A professional German translation will reflect these differences and is achieved by assigning translators from the appropriate part of the world, or with experience of the regional variation concerned.
