Translating the German Language

There is a closer relationship between German spelling and pronunciation than there is in English. German and English language

The German language is very different from English in the fact that German makes extensive use of inflectional endings. The verb is inflected to show person, number, tense, and mood; and the subjunctive is frequently used.

The declensional scheme has four cases: nominative, genitive, dative, and accusative. There are two ways of declining the adjective, and there are three grammatical genders: masculine, feminine, and neuter. 

Confused yet? Don't worry, software will handle the translation for you but understanding a little about the basics can come in handy when you're building your custom German dictionaries to increase accuracy..

 

German Words

When using translation software to translate full German documents you will notice a difference in word order. You will find that the it has very long compound words, in fact some words can be as long as a short sentence in English.

On average, when you convert a document from English to German, you will see the amount of text will expand between 5 to 20%. When going the other direction, German to English, you will see the text contracts 5 to 40%. Even if a document retains the formatting, this means the layout can still be affected by moving one page into two, or vice versa.  

All Nouns are Capitalized

You will also notice that German is the only language in which all nouns are capitalized, common as well as proper. If you are working with English, normally proper nouns would not be translated. With German, all nouns would need to be translated. When working with the software, be sure to go into the global options and find the options for translating capitals. You can turn this option On or Off.

Dialects

In the 18th century a number of writers helped to develop the modern standard German language form that we use today.  A corresponding norm for spoken High German, influenced by the written standard, is used in education, the theater, and broadcasting.

Dialects that differ substantially from standard German, not only in pronunciation but also in grammar, are found in regions of Germany, E France, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein; Lëtzeburgesch, an official language of Luxembourg, is a German dialect spoken by about 400,000 people there.

Although dialectal differences within both the High German and Low German regions remain, a trend toward uniformity in the direction of the written standard is expected partly as a result of widespread broadcasting, diminishing isolation, and increased socioeconomic mobility.
