The Importance of Dutch

Dutch is the native language of around 23 million people and a second language to another 5 million people. Dutch is the official language of the Netherlands, Belgium, Surinam, Sint Maarten, Curacao, Aruba and Benelux. In addition, it is an unrecognized minority language in Germany, France and Indonesia. Given the widespread emigration of native Dutch speakers to countries around the world, translation from and into Dutch is a highly valued service for organizations wishing to communicate with Dutch-speaking clients and associates.

About the Dutch Language

Dutch is a West Germanic language that first developed in the Low Countries. It is most similar to English, Frisian and German, and more distantly, to Swedish, Danish and Norwegian. During the Netherlands’ history of exploration and colonization, the language’s use spread to the Caribbean, Africa, South America and Asia. The language has a regulating body, the Nederlandse Taalunie or Dutch Language Union, which maintains a standard written form.

Dutch Dialects

There are 28 primary dialects of Dutch. Of these, the individual dialects can be further subdivided into more than 600 highly specific varieties. Among these dialects, it does not have any “prestige” dialect, which is considered standard. Afrikaans, derived from Dutch, is sufficiently linguistically unique to be considered a language and not a dialect.

Why Use Multilingual Connections for Your Dutch Language Needs

Working with a qualified and competent translator or interpreter can enhance your organization’s reputation while providing a highly valuable service. In many cases, companies attempt to save money by forgoing translation and relying on English’s status as a lingua franca. However, by investing in a translator, you can demonstrate to clients that you are willing to “meet them halfway.” Allowing all parties to communicate in their native languages creates an atmosphere of comfort and convenience. When your clients or associates are at ease, you can begin building a positive working relationship. In addition to strengthening your relationship, you minimize the risk of potentially disastrous miscommunication.
