English is the most widely used language on the Internet, but most German business prefer to use German both online and offline. That means that by having a version of your website translated into German, therefore, you increase your readership immediately and dramatically improve the effectiveness of your online marketing campaigns.

Another important factor is that if you intend to make your product available on the German market, it is now required by the European Union to have it translated and localized. That includes marketing materials, your web page, product packaging, technical documentation and/or service manuals. Our translators have experience with all the EU regulations and are also fully aware of all cultural and/or legal requirements within Germany.
