The fastest and most accurate English to Dutch translations at a very reasonable cost
As technology advances, it continually becomes easier to reach out to and communicate with people all around the world. Time and distance are no longer obstacles to global communication. The only remaining hindrance is the linguistic barrier between regions that speak different languages. Fortunately, Circle Translations is right here to provide the solution.
Take the Dutch language for instance. It is the national language in the Netherlands and is also one of the official languages in Belgium, Aruba, Suriname, Curacao and Sint Maarten. More than 24 million people around the world speak Dutch, and many of them are not very fluent in English. In order to ensure efficient communication, it is advisable to invest in high quality Dutch translation services so that you will have accurate Dutch translations of all your English texts.
Reasons for Hiring Professionals for Translating between Dutch and English Languages
Perhaps you have English content that you want to translate into Dutch, or you have Dutch content that you want to translate into English. Either way, the reasons for needing the translation are the same. Let’s take a look at some of the more notable ones.
Gain Entry into the Global Market
Making your content available in multiple languages is one of the easiest and most effective ways to break into the global market. Let’s say your website is only published in English. Non-English speaking online visitors, particularly the 24 million Dutch-speaking prospective customers, will not even bother looking at your page. But if you hire reliable Dutch translators to convert your website content, you will have effectively expanded your market and sales potential.
Ensure Accuracy in Translated Content
Most browsers these days already have a built-in translation feature that can detect a website's language and translate it into a multitude of other languages that the user chooses. On one hand, this is indeed a great achievement in terms of browser capabilities.
But on the other hand, for a professional business owner, it is not really a good idea to rely on these plugins for the translation of your content as they are prone to create errors. With reliable and professional Dutch translation services, you can be sure to get accurate and high quality translations every single time.
Establish a Professional Brand Image
It is very important to always make a good impression on your existing and potential Dutch-speaking clients. But poorly translated content hardly reflects a professional brand image, so you don’t want to go down that route.
Machine translations and sub-par human translation services cost a lot less, but you get what you pay for. With a professional Dutch translation company, you will pay a bit more but they can be instrumental in helping you build a complete professional brand image, and the returns will be much more favorable as well.
Build a Personal Connection with Customers
When you launch a new product into the Dutch market and the locals see that your content is actually in their native language, they will quickly warm up to your product or service, and be much more willing to make a purchase. Customers like to feel that you care about them, and translations are a great way to show them that you do care.
Interesting Facts about the Dutch Language
Dutch is one of the many languages that Circle Translations specializes in when it comes to translation projects. We have a large pool of proficient Dutch translators who can easily produce English to Dutch or Dutch to English translations on demand. Most of them are native Dutch speakers and are not only fluent in the language but also fully understand all its nuances and idiosyncrasies.
If you are thinking of getting some of your content translated into Dutch, whether they are official business documents or personal texts, it would be nice to learn a thing or two about this beautiful language while you’re at it.
A lot of common English words have Dutch origins.
When the Dutch settled into American land in the 17th century, among their lasting contributions to American culture are several words that have since become part of the English language. Many of these are related to food and drink, such as coleslaw, cookie, brandy, gin and waffles.
There are also plenty of seafaring words that came from the Dutch, like keelhaul, starboard, freight, buoy, and skipper. It would surprise many Americans to know that even the word dollar comes from Dutch origins.
A lot of common Dutch words have French origins.
If you speak French, it would be very easy for you to learn how to speak Dutch because there is an abundance of common words in their vocabulary. As a matter of fact, more than a quarter of Dutch words are derived from other languages, mostly from French. A lot of them have even retained the original French spellings.
Dutch words can be unbelievably long.
Dutch is a West Germanic language, and is actually a derivation of the old Frankish language. Just like German, the Dutch vocabulary is rife with compound words that they form simply by stringing a series of smaller words together. For example, Vervoerdersaansprakelijkheidsverzekering is one of the longest words that we often encounter in the translation projects that we get from clients. It means carriers’ liability insurance.
These compound words are among the biggest focuses in Dutch document translation. It is often the case that official documents might need a slight change in layout after being translated into Dutch, mainly because of these long words. Also, when texts are translated into the Dutch language, the translation usually ends up as much as 15% longer than the original English content.
More than 150,000 Americans speak Dutch fluently.
They might not use it much in everyday conversations but Dutch is certainly spoken actively in the homes of these 150,000 Americans. Many of these Dutch-speakers are descendants of the Dutch settlers that came to America centuries ago.
In Delaware, Ohio and Indiana, Dutch is one of the top 15 languages spoken by residents. However, this is not to be confused with Pennsylvania Dutch that the Amish and Mennonites speak. Theirs is actually one of many German dialects.
