German to English Translation Services


Germany has the biggest economy within the European Union and the fourth largest worldwide, therefore, it probably comes as no surprise to know that both German to English and English to German translations are in extremely high demand.

According to Culture Trip, German is the 11th most widely spoken language in the world, with 1.4% of the population being German speakers.

Germany is also home to a large number of economic global companies and is the world’s second-largest exporter, with an economy that ranks number one in Europe and number four worldwide. Brands such as Audi, Mercedes, Porsche, Hugo Boss, and Adidas are just a few of the globally recognized corporations to come from Germany. 

According to, a recent study shows that 50 of the most valuable German brands have a combined value of €263 billion, which places Germany’s top companies ahead of countries such as the UK and France.

These are just a few of the reasons why English to German translations can be beneficial to your company, as speaking the language to your German business partners can greatly improve your chances for effective communication and successful relationships.  More specifically, translating documents such as websites, catalogs, product specifications, and localizing your company’s social media channels, etc. can all prove to be advantageous in the business world.

On the other hand, over 1.6 billion people in the world speak English as both a native or an additional language, accounting for approximately 20% of the Earth’s population.  Therefore, with regards to business, English has rapidly become the dominant language and it is almost a necessity for people to be able to speak English if they are to enter a global workforce successfully – highlighting the importance of German to English translations.

In order to translate from German to English or English to German successfully, the translator must be well trained and familiar with the nuances and meanings of both languages. HI-COM works hard to adapt all texts according to the target language and culture, in order to effectively translate the intended meaning and to ensure that there is no room for miscommunication.  To ensure the highest quality of a translation, HI-COM only uses experienced and certified German/English translators.

German Translation and Localization

The German language is spoken in numerous European countries such as Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Liechtenstein – making it the most spoken native language in the European Union.

Germany also hosts some of the biggest international trade fairs in a variety of industries such as information technology (IT), consumer electronics, and many more. Whilst the capital of Germany, Berlin, is rapidly becoming the go-to hub for innovative startups.

In order to accurately translate texts from German to English, translators need to be aware of the numerous cultural and dialect differences, as dialect changes drastically depending on where you are in Germany. For example, the Bavarian accent and dialect is often referred to as the ‘German that even Germany doesn’t understand’.

Which is why, unlike any other agency, HI-COM will make every effort to put you in direct contact (or even face-to-face) with the translator to ensure that all aspects of your translation are discussed in thorough detail so that there is no room for miscommunication. By doing so, this will not only result in a text that contains all the relevant terminology and language nuances, but will also ensure that it is effectively adapted to both your target audience and the needs of your business.
