Translation between English and Dutch

Translate your content into Dutch and reach 24 million people

Some 24 million people in the world speak Dutch. This number jumps to 32 million if we take into account Afrikaans speakers. In Europe, Dutch is one of the official languages in the Netherlands and Belgium and therefore an official language of the European Union. It is a main language for the medical, construction and IT sectors, and professional translators are a crucial link between English and Dutch-speaking companies. Find out how we can translate your professional documents.

What's the difference between Standard Dutch and Flemish?

Dutch is spoken in the Netherlands, in Belgium, in Suriname, Aruba, the Dutch Antilles, South Africa and Indonesia. Afrikaans is spoken in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia, and most Dutch speakers understand the language. It is important, however, to know the difference between Standard Dutch and Flemish, spoken in Belgium and in French Flanders. We at BeTranslated are linguists at heart, and we are experts in dealing with dialects, language variations and cultural nuance.

“Should I Translate into Flemish or Standard Dutch?” – the most important question when reaching markets in Belgium and the Netherlands.
Flemish is the general term used to describe the Dutch dialect spoken in Belgium. It’s not an entirely different language, but encompasses a variation spoken in Flanders and dialects spoken in Belgium. Although similar to Standard Dutch, spoken in the Netherlands, it is different in vocabulary, pronunciation and structure.

Standard Dutch and Southern Dutch or Flemish differ in a number of ways. Flemish uses many older words and is also considered to be softer-spoken than Standard Dutch. Many Dutch speakers from the Netherlands consider Flemish to be rather old-fashioned.

In comparison, Belgians consider Standard Dutch to be harsh and guttural, a bit too authoritative, hostile or even arrogant at times.

As you can see, choosing a native Dutch translator is essential. It is also key that you choose a specialist translator who has knowledge in your area of activity, cultural knowledge and the linguistic know how to successfully reach your target market, whether it’s Belgium, the Netherlands, or elsewhere.
