Benefits of German translation

Connect with German-speaking customers

Professional German translation

Communicate better with your German customers by providing information in their native language.

German translation is an effective strategy to improve business communication with German-speaking customers. According to CSA Research’s Can’t Read, Won’t Buy study, 65% of consumers show a preference for products presented in their native language, and 40% avoid buying products that are not in their language. It should also be noted that only 67% of Germans speak another foreign language fluently. The adaptation of content into German is not only about gaining the trust of buyers, but is also a legal requirement in many places for the marketing of certain products.  

The quote by German Chancellor Willy Brandt: If I’m selling to you, I speak your language. If I’m buying, dann müssen Sie Deutsch sprechen! ( If I’m buying, then you must speak German!), captures this concept and highlights the importance of language in purchasing decisions. Using German in marketing and sales communication reflects respect for the local culture and strengthens the connection with the customer, which can be decisive for business success.

With German translation your company can:

Extend the global nature of your business and reach a wider audience.

Expand into new markets and increase international sales. 

Facilitate communication and increase customer and supplier confidence.

Save time, save money, and avoid errors in communication management.

Where is German spoken?

German, or Deutsch, is a Germanic language that originated in Central Europe. It is the mother tongue of more than 100 million people and is the most widely spoken language in Europe. German is the official language of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg and the German-speaking Community of Belgium. It also has a significant presence in northern Italy, in the Alto Adige region. The influence of German also extends to linguistic minorities in other European countries and emigrant communities in America and Australia.

Localization and adaptation of German variants

We adapt your content to the culture and variants of the language

Translations adapted to different German-speaking regions

Due to its wide geographic distribution, German exhibits a variety of dialects that reflect the rich history and culture of the regions in which it is spoken. These dialects often align more closely with natural geographic features than with the political boundaries of countries or regions.

The professional translators on iDISC’s team are native speakers of the German variants of each target region or country and know how to adapt translations so that they impact that specific audience in a more direct way, which, when it comes to marketing content, multiplies its effectiveness.  

Of course, Standard German, known as Hochdeutsch , can also be used, which is more suitable for the translation of more technical documentation. 

iDISC offers German localization of Low German(Niederdeutsch) and High German(Oberdeutsch) dialects and their variants.

Frequently asked questions about German translation

What kind of documents can we translate into German?

We can translate any file type or format. We extract the content, translate it and return the translated document respecting the formatting. We use tools that show the approved updates in the original text in order to apply them faithfully in the translated versions. All this without the need for a designer, editor or programmer.

How do I request a translation into German?

It’s very simple! All you have to do is fill out this form, attach the document you wish to translate and indicate the language and delivery date. We will contact you as soon as possible and start the translation process so that you can receive your translations without delay.

How is the price of a German translation calculated?

The translation rate for a document is calculated based on the number of words to be translated. Depending on the project, there are several factors that can influence the final price, such as language combination, content type, source format and delivery time, among others. Similarly, repeated phrases or words can reduce the cost of translation thanks to the use of technological tools.

How long does a German translation take?

The usual waiting time to receive a simple translation is between 2 and 3 working days. The turnaround time depends mainly on the volume of words, but also on the degree of specialization of the vocabulary. To give you a rough idea, a translator usually translates between 2000 and 2500 words per day on average. Subsequently, this work must be reviewed by another translator, who may process around double or triple the number of words per day in proofreading tasks.

What guarantees are in place to ensure translation quality and confidentiality?

At iDISC, we comply with the quality standards ISO 9001, ISO 17100 and ISO 18587, which establish requirements for professional competence and processes in translation services to ensure that translations are fit for purpose.

In addition, with ISO 27001-accredited processes and in compliance with the GDPR, we ensure the confidentiality of your translations and protect all your information with the latest cybersecurity tools, using secure systems for the storage, access to and transmission of documents.
