Interesting facts about Dutch translation

Dutch is an Indo-European and Germanic language. It is strongly related to German, although words that sound the same are more often than not false friends, and it also has many things in common with English. It has several regional languages: Frysian, spoken in the North-Eastern province of Friesland, is considered a separate language, whereas Limburgian, spoken in the southern province of Limburg, is considered a dialect of Dutch. Neither of these would, however, be used in technical documentations.

Dutch has three genders - masculine, feminine and neuter. However, Dutch only has two definite articles: de is used for masculine and feminine words, and het is used for nouns that are neuter. As a side note, when the infinitive form of the verb is used as a noun (such as in the phrase het vertalen), the neuter form is used.

One variant of Dutch that many of our clients encounter is Flemish, which is one of the three official languages of Belgium (the others are French and German). Dutch and Flemish are not quite the same languages; Flemish uses a slightly different syntax and vocabulary. This is especially important when translating marketing texts, legal texts, etc. So when we translate into Dutch for you, we will ask whether you intend to use the translation in The Netherlands, in Belgium, or in both markets. We can then advise you on appropriate translation solutions.

Although foreigners often refer to the country as Holland, the name of the country is actually The Netherlands or, to use the Dutch term, Nederland.
