Professional Dutch Translation
- Dutch is spoken by over 28 million people worldwide as a first or second language.
- Dutch is an official language in the Netherlands, Netherlands Antilles and Surinam, and is also spoken in Belgium, South Africa, Aruba and Indonesia.
- As a Germanic language, Dutch is closely related to English, German and the Scandinavian languages.
- The name Dutch originates from the word Duutsc or Dietsc which means ‘language of the people’.
Translation text expansion
Translations into Dutch tend to end up longer than the original document. This is referred to as translation text expansion in the translation industry. This happens as in some languages, more words are needed to say the same thing. As a result, this feature of the Dutch language can have a big impact on design, elongating navigation menus, taglines, displays and more.Formal vs. informal speech
The Dutch language features a strong distinction between formal and informal speech (“u” and “je”, respectively). While utilizing formal address is still the most common for localization projects, more and more business have decided to go for informal speech to make their voice and tone more open and friendly. On the other hand, support or technical documentation is usually written in a formal tone.
