History of the German language

German, a Germanic language, originates from other Indo-European languages. It separated from the other languages by a shift in sounds called the first Germanic sound shift.

Germany, a regional country, had a number of different dialects; however, this regionalism did not completely separate the German language as German writers strove to write in a language which could be universally understood by all. Any standard was, however, a written standard; it wasn’t until 1800 that urban Northern Germany began to speak standard German. Those whose dialects greatly differed from the standard had to practically relearn German as another language.

Even in recent years there has been great debate over what is standard German. The spelling reform of 1996 separated the population. Some newspapers blatantly refused to adhere to the new rules and initially this seemed to make the situation worse. Only recently in 2006 did the federal parliament intervene to make the law official and spelling was standardised. Such recent laws altering a fundamental structure of the German language illustrates that language is constantly changing.

All our German translators are native speakers who keep abreast of all changes in their native language; this ensures that this translation agency will keep your translations accurate and relevant to your target audience.
