German is the third most-taught foreign language in the English-speaking world, after French and Spanish.
German is the official language of 7 countries as well as the minority language in 10 countries, and it is spoken in large immigrant populations in 14 countries across the world. German is an important language for European commerce and policy, as German is one of the official languages of the European Union and is one of the working languages of the European Commission.
There is considerable regional variation among the German dialects, to the point of being mutually unintelligible. Even Standard German differs by region and country, making our skilled German interpreters and translators even more valuable.
