Dutch

Dutch is a West Germanic language of the Indo-European language group with over 23 million people worldwide speaking it. Most Dutch speakers live in the Netherlands, Belgium and Suriname (South America), with smaller groups in parts of France, Germany and several former Dutch colonies. It is closely related to other West Germanic languages such as English, West Frisian and German. Dutch is also the parent of several languages including Afrikaans, one of the official languages of South Africa with 60% speaking Afrikaans in Namibia.

The Netherlands itself is the European part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, which consists of the Netherlands, the Netherlands Antilles and Aruba in the Caribbean. The Netherlands was a founding member of the European Union (EU), NATO, and the OECD. The Netherlands is home to five international courts and things reminiscent of the culture include windmills, tulips, cheese, clogs, Delftware pottery and Gouda cheese. Bicycles are a common sight throughout the whole of the Netherlands. It is also known for its liberal policies toward drugs, prostitution, homosexuality and euthanasia.

Well-known Dutch companies or brands include Philips, Grolsch, Heineken, Royal Dutch Shell (an Anglo-Dutch company), Unilever (Anglo-Dutch company), ING Group, AEGON, ABN-AMRO, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Edam cheese and Mexx.  Famous Dutch people, past and present include Johannes Vermeer, Vincent Van Gogh, Hieronymus Bosch, Rutger Hauer, Paul Verhoeven, Dennis Bergkamp and Anne Frank.

I just wanted to thank you all for the speedy turnaround of the last two translation jobs despite the jubilee celebrations and compliment you and your translators on the quality of the work.
You call yourselves UK Techtrans, but it would appear that you offer an all round translation service.

Thank you for all the recently translated files. I have received all the CDs, and I am now starting to print the manuals. Everything looks great!
A huge thanks to all the team, - another project completed on time and of high quality. I simply have to press 'print'.
