Our ISO 9001 certified management system, and our EN-15038 certified translation service are just two arguments for the increasing number of companies in the United States, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Belgium, and other European countries entrusting the Dutch translation of their technical documents to our translation agency.
The Dutch language, with about 28 million speakers – 5 million of which speak Dutch as a second language, is mainly spoken in the states of the Dutch Language Union: the Netherlands, the northern half of Belgium (Flanders), and Suriname. It is estimated that about 700,000 native Dutch-speakers live in Australia, Canada, and the USA.
The Dutch language is regulated by the Dutch Language Union (Nederlandse Taalunie).
The language is called Nederlands in Dutch, and Flemish (Vlaams) is the name they give to the several Dutch dialects spoken in Belgium. The main differences between the Dutch spoken in the Netherlands and Flemish have to do with pronunciation, and intonation. To a lower extent, there are also minor differences regarding vocabulary, mainly due to the fact that Flemish borrowed several words from French and English, and these loanwords are not found in Standard Dutch.
Afrikaans, a daughter language of Dutch originated in the 17th century, is spoken by about 7 million of native speakers in South Africa and Namibia. About 90% of Afrikaans vocabulary is of Dutch origin. However, there are many Afrikaans words borrowed from Malay, Portuguese, and the Bantu languages. However, the most important differences between Afrikaans and Dutch have to do with grammar and spelling.
