Considering doing business in a German-speaking country? Don’t just rely on English. Since customers prefer to buy in their language, you’ll need to seek out professional German translation services to remove any barriers. Our specialized translators are native speakers, ensuring flawless results and that world-renowned German quality.


The beauty of the German language

One of the fascinating things about German is that you can convey elaborate ideas with just a single word. While many learners find the grammar and compound words complex, they make the language flexible and creative. There are currently about 110 million German speakers worldwide. It is an official language in Germany, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, Luxembourg and Liechtenstein. Leading industries in these countries include technology, real estate and construction, education, food processing and tourism.


Translating German to English (and the other way around)

Translating from and into German presents many challenges only qualified linguists can resolve. For instance, you’ll find numerous examples of local German variations – even within Germany. Dialects such as Berlinerisch (Berlin), Bairisch (Bavarian), Österreichisches Deutsch (Austrian German) and Schwiizerdütsch (Swiss German) have different vocabulary and exceptions to standard grammatical rules. Some are considered a language in their own right. Opting for professional German translation services allows you to work with a native who’s skilled in handling these distinctions, adapting them into perfect English translations.

If you’re translating into German, it’s highly likely your text will be longer. Our desktop publishing service ensures your translation fits into the original or modified layout. Web localization and subtitling experts can also reflect your message while adhering to character limits.

As a translation company, we We offer German document translation and other solutions from and into over 40 languages, including Danish, Japanese, Polish, Russian and Spanish.

Why choose a translation agency for German?

A freelancer can only offer a few language pairs and specialist services, and your German-speaking colleague needs time to do what they do best. There are more benefits to entrusting your German translation services to a trusted partner:

  • Native translators for any variant and any field
    If you need someone with specific industry experience, we can draw from a vast network of German translators across countries and time zones. You’ll also be partnered with a native who knows all about your target market. A German translations agency at the palm of your hand.
  • Simple processes enhanced by tech
    We make the most of translation technology, including multilingual glossaries, translation memories, for speedy and consistent translations. Save even more time when translating updated or similar documents, or even a full website translation.
  • Urgent and certified German translation company 
    You may need a sworn or certified translation of official documents. We can find an accredited translator to work on your text and provide a stamp for the relevant institution. In a hurry? We’re flexible and have a responsive 24/7 helpdesk service to meet tight deadlines.
  • No cookie-cutter method
    Our tailored approach identifies the right services and workflows to meet your objectives. A translation agency gives you access to German translators, copywriters and consultants to get your journey to global growth off to a flying start.

Attached’s global team of qualified German linguists adapt the original material with precision and care. We’re committed to reproducing your content to a high standard in the required language. That’s why we’ve received ISO 17100:2015 and ISO 18587 certifications.

Global communication experts beyond translations

When it comes to communications, it’s not just about the language. Presenting your brand to a new market without knowing the habits and preferences of the target culture won’t get you very far. You’ll need to rethink your images, cultural references and how you choose to present information.

Our German translators help you drill down to exactly what resonates with your customers. We’ll incorporate the right keywords for your search engine optimization (SEO) strategy so you can be found. Your localized content will also meet any legal requirements, such as an Impressum (legal notice) for websites operating in Germany, Austria or Switzerland.

As a leading language service provider, we offer you peace of mind that your translations will have covered all the bases to achieve the desired results.

Did you know that…

Swiss German replaces the German ligature ß with ss. For example: ‘Straße’ > ‘Strasse’ (‘street’). Also, many Swiss will call a mobile phone ‘Natel’, while to Germans, it is a ‘Handy’ – good to know if this term is important for your business and you want to optimise your SEO strategy.

We can convert files (e.g., PDF to Word), but this will increase the turnaround time and cost.
Yes – we can give you an estimate if you tell us as much as possible about the final file. Contact a member of the team about the subject area, number of pages and language combination.
When we receive your request, we’ll consider several factors. Turnaround times depend on the number of words to translate, the format, content, reference materials, etc. We’ll let you know how long it will take to translate your documents at the quoting stage before the project starts.
