Varieties of German
German is spoken by almost 100 million people worldwide and in several countries – there are more German speakers in Europe than any other language. It is an official language in five other countries: Austria (8 million speaker), Switzerland (5 million speakers), Belgium, Luxembourg and Liechtenstein. And there are subtle differences between speakers from different areas.
Vocabulary, pronunciation and dialect vary by region, as does grammar. Some German speakers adopt English terms, some stick to German. The German that Austrians use is different to German-speaking areas of Belgium.
With Acolad, nothing is lost in translation. Professional German translators know what works in Switzerland and how to explicitly express the same in Bavaria. You can rest assured that pinpoint accuracy shines through every word of you detailed and complex technical documents. Your German-speaking customers will know exactly what they are reading.

Getting it right in German
Local sensitivities in German translation services are extremely important, especially for businesses thinking about marketing. Get that attention-grabbing slogan, tailored to your target audience, and without causing offense.
German shares about half its vocabulary with English but its grammatical rules are far stricter. There are long compound words and longer sentences, all of which has a bearing on how documents are translated and presented. Our translators are very aware of these structural differences and incorporate these subtleties.
Translations include use of local customs for units, currencies and spellings, so your target reader knows you are speaking their language.
