Interesting Facts on German Language
Guten Tag! Whether you are an aficionado of all things German or only a beginner in that language, you will surely know that phrase means Hello.
German is an extremely old language and is mainly derived from the Germanic branch of the Indo-European language family. Due to its long history, it has adopted some words from Latin and Greek, and a smaller number from English and French.
German is a popular language in the world, and the number of native speakers is estimated to be almost 100 million. Even though there are languages with more native speakers, its widespread use makes it the third most commonly spoken language in the European Union, behind English and French.
The Germans are known to be masters of technology, and their precision and dedication to details are legendary.
One example is in automobile, with the Mercedes and BMW brands leading the pack. However, that is not the only thing that they are famous for.
Oktoberfest, beer, sausages, the former Berlin wall, Black Forest and the myriad culture of Germans are some of the other attractions that have long held the fascination of other parts of the world.
Complexity in German Language Translation
Is German standardised throughout the word? Many people think so, and indeed there are many similarities between the different variants of German.
However, due to factors like location, history and culture, there are still some significant differences. Let us use Standard German and Swiss German as an example. The pronunciation of words can be slightly different, which is the case for many variants.
The words used can also differ from each other. For example, cabbage is chabis in Swiss German and kohl in Standard German. One time is einisch in Swiss German and einmal in Standard German.
Finally, goat is geiss in Swiss German and ziege in Standard German. You may be quite surprised to learn that some Germans have difficulty understanding Swiss German when they visit Switzerland, and both parties switch to English in order to better communicate with each other!
German, like any other language, evolves with the times and is always in constant flux. As such, WhizWordz has been constantly upgrading itself and keeps up with the latest in translation technology and terminology.
For example, because of the prominent use of English, some English words have been added and modified to suit the German language.
WhizWordz has also been actively deepening its understanding and knowledge of best practices like style guides, the use of numbers and annotations.
In our many years of doing German translation, we have had many new and recurring clients, both from large corporation, local companies and individuals level.
Professional German Translation Services
If you have never translated your documents before, you may have some questions in your mind. How would you go about searching for a suitable translation service provider?
WhizWordz has created and fine-tuned a unique 5-phase proven system where the quality of our German translation is guaranteed:
- Translation phase
After the job has been accepted, we will search through our database of approved and tested German translators to search for someone who has the necessary expertise and experience to get the job done.
All our translators are professionals who have at least 3 years of experience and have acquired the required translation and language certificates along the way. Many of them have worked in other industries like engineering, medical and law before, thus expanding their knowledge base.
- Editing phase
After the translation has been completed in the allocated time, it is passed on to our editor who proofreads and edits the translation to make it better.
For example, he may modify certain words or phrases to make the translation smoother, while ensuring that the syntax and grammar are correct.
After the editing is done, the edited document will be returned to the translator for further changes and amendments where necessary.
- Final checking phase
After both the translator and editor agree on the finalised translation, we will check the translation one more time in order to pick up any spelling errors, formatting problems and inconsistencies that may have been omitted in the first 2 phases.
This extra round of checking is extremely useful, as an extra pair of eyes can pick out things that were missing before.
- After sales service phase
Finally, our sales personnel will hand over the completed translation to the client. Our client checks the translation over the next few weeks and if there are any questions, discrepancies or queries, he/she is free to ask them and these will be addressed promptly by our professional translators and editors.
- Closing phase
The translation cycle has now been concluded. However, if questions or problems occur in the future, the client is free to discuss further where necessary.
