Translation in Germany

Freelance translators and translation companies

Translation has a historical tradition in Germany. Many linguists in universities and institutes have devoted their efforts to studying almost every language on earth, from the most important to the most forgotten ones; and this shows in the vast and professional translation industry developed on German soil.

Moreover, the developed science and technology in Germany has always been very demanded in all the corners of the world, which means that there are always thousands of German texts to be translated.
