Dutch is a West Germanic language that is spoken by around 23 million people as a first language — including most of the population of the Netherlands and about sixty percent of Belgium — and by another 5 million as a second language.
Outside the Low Countries, it is the native language of the majority of the population of Suriname where it also holds an official status, as it does in Aruba, Curaçao, and Sint Maarten, which are constituent countries of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, located in the Caribbean. Historical linguistic minorities on the verge of extinction remain in parts of France, Germany, and in Indonesia, while up to half a million native speakers may reside in the United States, Canada, and Australia combined.
The Cape Dutch dialects of Southern Africa have evolved into Afrikaans, a mutually intelligible daughter language, which is spoken to some degree by at least 16 million people, mainly in South Africa and Namibia.
Dutch (dutch du-du) is one of the closest relatives of both German and English, and is colloquially said to be "roughly in between" them. Dutch, like English, has not undergone the High German consonant shift, does not use Germanic umlaut as a grammatical marker, has largely abandoned the use of the subjunctive, and has leveled much of its morphology, including most of its case system. Features shared with German include the survival of two to three grammatical genders—albeit with few grammatical consequences—as well as the use of modal particles, final-obstruent devoicing, and similar word order. Dutch vocabulary is mostly Germanic and incorporates slightly more Romance loans than German but far fewer than English] As with German, the vocabulary of Dutch also has strong similarities with the continental Scandinavian languages, but is not mutually intelligible in text or speech with any of them.
Betaplan Translations represents a wide network of native specialists performing high-quality Dutch translations. Give us the full details about your project and be sure our translation services will match your Dutch language translation needs.
Because words in different languages have a variety of meanings according to the sentence or phrase, it can be difficult to convey precisely the intended meaning of a text or sentence in the process of translating it. We have a pool of qualified translators to capture and reproduce the original meaning of the text or sentence in the target language. That is why we are able to deliver that accurate translation and in-depth comprehension of the source to the target language.
