German Translation Services

Contact Us

Business leaders may not understand German translation services’ benefits because they think their English websites do enough to target the market. After all, more than half of Germany’s population speaks English as a second language. However, by offering both English and German options, companies can target a larger percentage of people and better connect with consumers.

At Bureau Works, we offer German translation services and support multilingual strategies. Our platform streamlines these often complicated tasks and can even post on your behalf to limit your time managing translation projects. Working with us helps you target the entire market while engaging consumers on multiple fronts.

Why German Presents Unique Translation Challenges

While German is considered a relatively easy language to learn, that doesn’t eliminate many of the challenges inherent in getting the best possible translation for businesses. Here are just a few of the issues linguists must manage:
  • Origin: Many words in different languages have similar roots (or may even be exactly the same), so their translation is easy. These words are called cognates. For example, in English and Spanish, the word “television” is identical. In German, it’s “Fernsehen.” The more cognates two languages have between each other, the easier they translate. Unfortunately, since German doesn’t use Latin as a root language, it’s not going to have as many cognates.
  • Grammar: Grammar is unique and complex in German. Verb conjugation, noun declination, plural markers, and word order all have specific rules which change based on context. A written German word can be very different from its spoken counterpart.
  • Accent: Spoken German presents infamous challenges in terms of accent. Many sounds you’d find in English or other languages simply don’t exist in German. This presents a particular challenge when completing audio or video translation.
  • English: The wide prevalence of English in Germany doesn’t seem like it’d be a challenge, but it creates an environment where people come to expect fluency in both languages. That means companies will have to maintain a multilingual localization strategy, which is exponentially more complicated than merely managing one translation.
These issues mean that machine translation services or simple options might not offer the best return on investment. To truly get the best results from German translation services, you need to work with an expert firm.
