Dutch translation office

Professional Dutch translations

Dutch bears many similarities with languages such as English, Frisian and West Low German due to the common roots these languages share.

Through events in Dutch colonial history, the language was also brought to Africa, the end result of which was the development of an independent language: Afrikaans. When compared to Dutch, Afrikaans reflects some simplifications and influences from other African languages as well as English.

A rough estimate would suggest that around 26 million people speak Dutch in the world today. It is spoken in the Netherlands, Belgium, Indonesia and Surinam, and as a dialect in France and Germany.

But why should you as a foreign company have your content translated into Dutch?

It’s simple. the Netherlands’ number one country for import is Germany, just ahead of China.

In 2016, 52% of people living in the Netherlands bought clothing or sporting goods online. If you offer fashion and lifestyle items in your online shop, you should consider having it translated into Dutch. After all, customers are all the more likely to make purchases if the content is presented in a way that feels more specific and personal to them.

And if you sell bicycles or bicycle accessories, the Netherlands is the country with the most bicycles. In Amsterdam there are even more bikes than there are people. Therefore it is unlikely you would go amiss by offering bike accessories to the Dutch.

Don’t miss this opportunity and have your content translated into Dutch!
