German to English and English to German Translation Services
Some key facts about the German (Deutsch) language that can be useful to keep in mind when translating the German language:
* German has three nouns! Every noun in German is either der, die, or das; you need to learn each noun with its gender. Using the wrong gender not only makes it wrong, it also can cause changes in meaning.
* Case is indicated in German by its "inflection": putting different endings on articles and adjectives. When der changes to den or dem, it does so for a reason. That reason is the same one that makes the pronoun "he" change to "him" in English (or er to ihn in German). Not using the correct case will drastically change the context of a translation!
* German syntax has greater flexibility than English syntax and depends more on case and case endings for clarity. In German, the subject may not always come first in a sentence.
