Translation from German into English: Masters of Nuance, Tone and Accuracy

English is known for its heavy reliance on expressions and colloquialisms. Even within the realm of official business communication, speakers and writers commonly employ casual phrases and terms that may be mixed seamlessly with specialised technical language.

English's inconsistent formality also means that acceptable grammar or vocabulary might vary according to subject, audience or circumstance. Those who want to communicate effectively and professionally must understand these subtle differences to choose the right tone and accurately convey the original meaning.

Our project managers have years of experience selecting translators who can seamlessly transition your German documents and media into fluent English. We pride ourselves on accuracy and are always prepared to offer rapid turnarounds that let you publish sooner.

The Trouble with Translating German into English

Historically, English has borrowed many linguistic concepts and constructs from German. Unfortunately, similarities like shared alphabets, cognates and common vocabularies hide the complexity of moving between these languages.

German includes strict verb-order rules and inflexions that modify different parts of speech according to their functions. English largely lacks such constraints, and its punctuation isn't as rigid. These differences can result in translations that are either totally incorrect or so awkward that they distract native readers and listeners.
