Your German Passport to the MENA Market

When you hear the word German, you think Beethoven, Albert Einstein, technology, and a strong economy, don’t you?

You’ve forgotten something very important … which is the German language.

German is a niche language with 95 million native speakers, mainly in central Europe. It is additionally spoken by 10-15 million second language speakers, especially in Eastern Europe. It is the majority and official language in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, and South Tyrol (Italy). It is also an official language in Luxembourg and Belgium.  German is the most widely spoken language in the European Union. In both the United States and Europe, it’s the third most widely taught foreign language. German is a member of the West Germanic Language family, which also includes Dutch, Afrikaans, Frisian, English, and Yiddish.

The strength of the link between the German language and national identity is obvious when looking at the life stories of Germans living in exile. For many German writers who left Germany during the Third Reich, their native language became by far the most important element of their identity, a piece of home that they held on to for dear life.

The German language is known for the use of long compound nouns, posing linguistic and text size glitches. It takes native-speaking linguists mastering the German language, DTP experts, and cutting-edge CAT and DTP tools to deliver high-quality translations from German to MENA languages.

Unlike English and many other languages, all German nouns must have a specific gender depending on whether the subject of the sentence is a male, female or neutral-gender noun. Only a linguist with strong grasp of the German language can decipher gendered nouns in the German language.
