English to German Translation

When you translate from English to German, you have to keep in mind several key factors that make English to German translation highly complex for translators.

Grammatical cases

German is more complex than English when it comes to grammatical cases.

While English uses nominatives, accusatives and genitives for pronouns (I, me, my, mine, etc.), German has nominatives, accusatives, datives and genitives for nouns.

Long German compound words

A unique feature of the German language is its extensive usage of the so-called “compound words”. In German, you can combine two, three, or in some cases even more nouns into a new, unique word. Here are a few examples:

German Compound Word Literal Translation English Word
das Flugzeug fly thing aeroplane
der Ohrwurm ear worm catchy tune
die Naschkatze treat cat person with a sweet tooth
der Pechvogel bad luck bird unlucky person
der Scheinwerfer shine thrower headlight
das Drachenfutter dragon fodder apology gift (given to a spouse)
Grammatical gender in German language

In German, all nouns are categorized into 3 genders: masculine, feminine and neuter.
Gender is not relevant to the plural form of nouns. Therefore, when you talk about an object in German, you have to first determine its gender.

Gender Definite article Indefinite article
Masculine der ein
Feminine die eine
Neuter das ein
Plural die /

German Translation Tips

When translating from or into German, keep the following tips in mind to achieve a better translation!

  • Implicit versus explicit:

    What is implicit in the English language will frequently be explicit in German. This is especially relevant when it comes to business German.
    An example – computer, an interactive device that is used for multimedia communications, should be plugged into the wall socket.
    Even though the middle part of the sentence is an absolute exaggeration, in business German that is absolutely fine and very common.

  • Text expansion or shortening:

    Due to the difference discussed above, the translated text will either be longer (if translating from English into German) or shorter (if translating from German into English). The resulting greater or smaller volume of text will require the adjustment of the content layout.

  • Long sentences and the absence of commas:

    German sentences are commonly very long and their syntax is complex. When translating from German into English, one German sentence is frequently split into two or even three English sentences, because sentences in English tend to be much shorter than in German.

  • Formality:

    German in general, and business German in particular, is a very formal language, especially in comparison with American English and British English (to a lesser extent). The difference can be easily spotted in business culture between, for example, American English and German, where the former will be significantly less formal than the latter.
