Common Questions About German Translation

What are the additional letters in German, and how do they impact translation?

  • German uses the same alphabet as English, but it includes a few additional letters: Ä, Ö, Ü, and ẞ.
  • These letters affect pronunciation and meaning. For example:
    • An umlaut (Ä, Ö, Ü) signals a sharper sound, often in plural forms (e.g., “Äpfel” for apples).
    • The esszett (ẞ) represents a sharp “s” sound, similar to a double “s.”
  • While these symbols are relatively common, ensure your website or application can handle them during internationalization.

Why does German text expand dramatically when translated from English?

  • German is notorious for being one of the longest languages.
  • This expansion isn’t due to greater expressiveness; in fact, Germans are concise.
  • The average German word has more than six letters, compared to five in English.
  • Prepare for longer text when translating to German.
