English to Dutch Translation
Dutch and English are both West Germanic languages, meaning there is a likeness between both languages. Take the Dutch vocabulary: Many identical words are used in Dutch and English, so an English to Dutch translator has a smaller vocabulary to master. Spelling and pronunciation are equally comparable, and grammatical rules are relatively similar.
Moreover, Dutch retains the concept of grammatical gender, which is lost in English. Additionally, there are formal and informal language features and multiple Dutch dialects, so clearly defining and writing for your audience is essential for Dutch translators. Therefore, despite the common linguistic roots, your project is best left to a specialised Dutch translation agency.
Professional Dutch Translators
Our translation services are only conducted by native speakers whose command of the official and unofficial languages of the regions you serve is assured. For an English to Dutch translation, you’ll be matched with a native Dutch speaker that grew up in the location you’re targeting.
Having a network of over 5,000 linguists on hand allows us to translate Dutch content into over 120 languages quickly and professionally. Below are some of the other languages available through our Dutch translation agency:

Dutch Technical Translation
Technical Dutch translation refers to the adaptation of content in technical or scientific industries written by technical writers. For example, you might translate Dutch instruction manuals for electronic equipment into multiple languages.Translations of scientific journal entries, legal contracts, engineering information, or medication leaflets also fall into this area.
Besides being skilled and qualified, your English to Dutch translator also uses translation memory software to improve consistency and technical accuracy. Specific jargon is stored in the English to Dutch translation glossary to make the process more efficient and deliverables more precise.
Dutch Desktop Publishing
The goal of desktop publishing (DTP) is to create publish-ready content that looks as professional as the source material. It is essential if your Dutch translation is for print-based media, such as books, leaflets, handbooks, business cards, magazines, product packaging, and posters.
When you translate Dutch into other languages, more thorough DTP might be required. For example, languages that use non-Latin writing systems or right-to-left formatting might need new fonts and a complete adjustment of the material layout. Using our in-house services, your translation can quickly be revised and made ready for publication.
Accurate Dutch Translation for Business
Expanding your linguistic horizons to include Dutch will be a business decision you won’t regret. The level of trust gained between you and your new clients will be well worth it, and our team will be happy to provide a Dutch translation if you need help. Alternatively, we can translate Dutch documents into any other language to help businesses in the Netherlands expand overseas.
Additionally, we can take on more creative projects, such as marketing campaigns. Your English to Dutch translator ensures that the format and design are tailored to your new market. We’ll also pay close attention to the tone of voice so your unique brand identity is maintained across all content.
Dutch Website Translation
If serving a Dutch audience, it’s well worth investing in a Dutch translation for your website. Websites are an excellent way to effortlessly reach international customers. Dutch-speaking people are also more likely to trust and purchase from your site if it’s written in their native tongue, ultimately leading to more sales and a better brand representation abroad.
Aside from a straightforward English to Dutch translation or your website copy, we offer several advanced language services. Your English to Dutch translator can perform SEO translation to ensure your site appears in foreign search engines. Or if you want visitors to have the same experience no matter where they’re based, website localisation is also available through our agency
Dutch Translation Tips & Insights
High-quality Dutch translation is what we do best! Below are two insights from our English to Dutch translator network to help you improve your translated material. Use them to ensure you connect with your audience and produce accurate content when you next translate Dutch.
Choose the Right FormalityThere are both formal and informal forms of the Dutch language. Formal text is usually reserved for business or technical documents, but there are some instances in that informal text is preferable. You need to choose the suitable formality for your English to Dutch translation. This ensures your content is written in the intended tone and gets your message across in the most appropriate way.
Text Expansion & ContractionDutch contains many compounded words, and Dutch text is longer than English on average. The converse is true for a Dutch to English translation – the translated material will be more contracted than the source text. Text expansion and contraction can dramatically impact the formatting of your finished material, so your English to Dutch translator must keep this in mind.
Design is even more fundamental when producing visual content such as marketing material, websites, and mobile apps. You may require DTP services or localisation alongside a standard Dutch translation.
