As a pluricentric language, German is an official language in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy (South Tyrol), Luxembourg, Belgium (East Cantons) and Liechtenstein. The varieties of German spoken in the respective countries can sometimes differ drastically. At times, the differences can be so extensive that certain common expressions used specifically in one country cannot be understood at all in other German-speaking countries. These differences are particularly prominent in the legal sphere and in colloquial language, which makes it all the more important for translators to know which region the target text is intended for before starting the work. Only then can they guarantee accurate use of terminology.

Translators German ↔ English – competitive rates
At the Translation Agency Vienna ǀ Connect Translations Austria, we are committed to transparency. The costs for specialist translations are calculated based on the number of words in the source language. The price per word varies depending on the language combination.
Our English ↔ German translators work with so-called CAT tools (Computer-Assisted Translation tools) such as MemoQ and Across. This highly specialised software, developed specifically for the translation industry, does not only save time and thus costs, it also facilitates terminology management significantly. What's more, it offers the advantage of our French translators being able to carry out translations directly in the existing format. This is very helpful for construction drawings, InDesign and Help & Manual files, as well as for Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PHP files. With construction drawings that have been created with a CAD programme, we ideally receive the drawings in the exchange format DFX. InDesign files are required in IDML format. Please send us Framemaker documents as MIF files.
