Professional German translations

German is the second most widely spoken language in Europe, with over 95 million German mother-tongue speakers. It is the official language in Germany, Austria and Liechtenstein, and one of the official languages in Switzerland, Belgium and Luxembourg. All of these German-speaking countries are recognized for their high living standards, which makes them an attractive target for exporters around the globe.

PortLingo is a professional German translation and localization service provider with thousands of successfully completed translation projects in various industry verticals, including IT, legal, marketing, insurance, finance, healthcare and other domains. Clients trust our German translation expertise because PortLingo is one of a few select translation companies that do not abide by the word-for-word translation principle. Instead, we give our German linguists the freedom to recreate your message to ensure it reads and flows naturally in the German language, even if it means slight deviations from the source text. Our ultimate goal is to translate the meaning and essence of your product or service, not your product descriptions.

While the German language is similar in all German-speaking countries, it is worth remembering that there are many variants and dialects of German, even in Germany. So if your target customer is in Austria, you should localize your content into the Austrian German (Österreichisches Deutsch), but if you want to go after the German-speaking customers from wealthy Switzerland, your target language should be Swiss German (Schweizerdeutsch).

Expanding into German-speaking territories is by no means an easy task, but the PortLingo team is ready to ensure the process runs smoothly and efficiently.
