GERMAN TO ENGLISH / ENGLISH TO GERMAN TRANSLATION
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 consultancy.eu, 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.
