Hello everybody,

A client asked me to provide translation from Eng into German Luxembourgh. I have been looking in the database but can't find any. Do you know if there is an actual difference between German Germany and German Luxembourgh. (If yes, please, let me know how does this pair, it is only few words)

Thanks

Anton

Hi Anton,

there are huge differences, in fact this is not German at all. Look for "Letzeburgesch" in the Freelancer directory and ask your client if this is what he wants.

Regards
Andy

German is an official language of Luxembourg, as is French. I am not sure of the status of the local dialect: it has only been even recognized as a language relatively recently. German as spoken in Luxembourg is pretty much like German spoken anywhere. It is quite distinct from Luxembourgish or "Letzeburgesch".

I recently saw a job ad from a bank in Luxembourg, and "quadrilinguisme" was specified as a prerequisiste. The four languages needed were "l'anglais, l'allemand, le francais, et le luxembourgeois".
