German translation of your website by professionals

Our German translators are professional linguists who can deliver your translation in Standard (High) German, Swiss German and Austrian German. See to the left to get the correct region/country for your translation.

German text expansion!

In general the text translated from English to German will expand by about 30%. Conversely, your German to English translation text will contract by around 30%.

This 'expansion factor' can cause problems with areas on your website that have a fixed space or area for the text/translation, like buttons. This can be done by using symbols instead of text.

Partial or complete website translation?

Instead of translating your entire website you can opt to translate only the core pages, those that your visitors regularly see. Some pages are rarely seen, so may not be worth translating and would not be worth continually updating in German.

Next step...

You can send us the documents to be translated in word (.doc) or as original source files (.asp, .htm(l), .php, .xml, .js and many more).

Source files versus word document

Sending us the source files is better than copying content into a word document, as this method will not include:

  • Page title
  • Description title
  • Alt tags
  • Forms

These are extremely important in appearing where you want in the Search engine rankings (serps) in your different language.

SEO on your multilingual website

We can help you with optimizing your multilingual website for different countries, but the terminology our translators prefer (however correct or appropriate) might be VERY different from what your customers are using to find you.

You must understand how your customers search online to effectively achieve high rankings and good online results. You should do research on what the major local search engines are and what your competition is doing so we can concentrate on translating keywords the way you want.

What does Localization mean?

Localization is the process of translating a piece of software or a web site (eg: menu commands, help, tool bars, etc.) from one language to another without disturbing the code base. This is done by using specialized software like Catalyst.
