About the Netherlands and the Dutch language
There are approximately 26 million native Dutch speakers in the world; the vast majority of these are based in the Dutch Language Union member states of the Netherlands (16 million), Belgium (6.5 million) and Suriname. Within the EU a further 5 million speak Dutch as a second language.
It’s a popular second language in Germany, the north of France and increasingly in Eastern Europe and is an official language of the European Union. The Dutch language has spread to countries as diverse as Aruba, Curaçao, Sint Maarten, Indonesia, the USA, Canada and Australia mostly due to migration in the 1950’s.
Dutch is classified as a West Germanic language and is closely related to both English and German. Whilst Dutch refers to the language as a whole, Belgian varieties are more commonly referred to as Flemish. Afrikaans is a daughter language of Dutch and is spoken by around 23 million people within South Africa and Namibia.
Dutch is also one of the official languages of the European Union.
Why is Dutch translation so important?
- The Netherland’s IT infrastructure is second to none. Some 70% of innovation is IT related.
- The chemicals industry is also one of the leading business sectors in the Netherlands, making a significant contribution to the economy. It hosts 16 of the world’s top 25 leading chemical companies which include Shell, Heineken and Unilever.
- Important raw materials are available or easy to supply.
- The country provides Europe and beyond with an extensive transportation network.
- The beautiful architectural cities of Rotterdam attract more than 14 million tourists annually. The Dutch tourism industry contributed more than 5% of the country’s GDP.
If your business is looking to expand into the Netherlands, or if you wish to make the most of existing contacts there, having professionally translated and accurate Dutch documents, manuals and press releases is extremely important. Professional Dutch translation ensures your company reputation is maintained, your projects are efficient and accurate communication is maintained.
What qualifications do your Dutch translators hold?
MTT has high standards for any translator we work with. Our team of Dutch translators hold a degree level qualification as a minimum and have further qualifications or experience in each of their chosen specialist areas.
How will Midland Technical Translations work with me?
The first step our team will take is to analyse your text and provide you with a quotation. If approved, we then allocate your project to the best matching translators taking into account their expertise in the industry you require. Information in our world is rapidly changing as are the social and cultural situations around the globe. Translators who do not have the relevant expertise could miss important nuances or worse.
Once your project has been translated, it is checked in-house before being returned to you by the agreed delivery deadline. Your feedback is very important to us so we welcome any comments on our service.
