As one of three national languages in Belgium, Flemish is the mother tongue of three-fifths of this country’s population. The rest of Belgium speaks French and,
more frequently, Dutch. To Belgians living in the Flemish Region, the variety of Dutch that we refer to as Flemish is not the only language they understand but is
certainly the only language they consider their own.
If you’re about to start business with the people of this country, Word Works Flemish translation services will help you better understand their native language. Whether you need Flemish translation services for personal or business reasons, Word Works is at your disposal. Flemish Belgians are a delight, so let’s meet them together!
To Belgian people and linguists, the term Flemish means a couple of different things. Informally, they use it for discerning the variety
of Dutch spoken in North Belgium. Officially, Belgian language experts use the term Flemish to mark the local dialects from the Flanders Region,
but also synonymously to the term Tussentaal, which is the “in-between-language” that describes yet another variety of Dutch.
The Dutch language has four principle variations in these parts - East Flemish, West Flemish, Brabantian, and Limburgish. Taken as a separate language, Flemish is rather a historical variant of Dutch than an isolated linguistic system.
However, some differences between Flemish and Dutch do exist. Most of them are noticeable at the vocabulary and pronunciation level, where words and expressions only slightly deviate from one variant to another. But these differences and deviations can still lead to misunderstandings in certain sociolects, which is why our Word Works translators treat Flemish is a separate language from Dutch.
Maybe you have a business document that must be translated from Flemish to English, or maybe your translation needs go the other way around. Perhaps you’re
partnering up with Belgian entrepreneurs and you could use continual Flemish translation services. Whatever you need, our professional Word Works linguists can
decipher any Flemish text of any given type and for any purpose.
