German to English Translation: Language Considerations
German is mostly spoken in Central Europe. It is, of course, the official language of Germany, and is also the most widely-spoken language in Austria, Switzerland and parts of Italy and Belgium, as well as being the official language or joint official language in these locations.
Worldwide, German is spoken by around 95 million native speakers and is the most commonly-spoken language within the European Union. There are around 80-90 million people who speak German as a second language.
In addition, it is the third most used language on websites (after English and Russian).
According to the Foreign Service Institute, German is a Category II Language in terms of its difficulty for a native English speaker http://www.effectivelanguagelearning.com/language-guide/language-difficulty
From a translation and localization point of view, at 100 Percent Languages Ltd., we work with the very best native English translators (from the UK, US, Canada, Australia and others) who have attained a very high level of German, and all of whom have spent a significant amount of time living and working in Germany, Austria or Switzerland. We work with native English translators because the translation (in this case, German to English translation) will always be more accurate when it is carried out by a translator translating INTO his or her native language. We also work with German translators who are true bilinguals – in other words, they are native speakers of both languages.
Our German to English translators also have significant experience and are certified professionals – we only work with the very best linguists in order to ensure that our clients receive very high-quality translations.

English is still the language of choice for many businesses, especially those with an international presence and this factor, combined with the characteristics of the German economy, mean that many companies and organizations require German to English translation, and English to German translation.
