Czech translation bureau Urgent Vertalen

Have your document translated quickly and economically

Worldwide there are approximately 12 million people who speak Czech, of whom 10.2 million live in the Czech Republic. The language only has official language status in The Czech Republic, but it is spoken in neighbouring countries, including Slovakia and Austria. The language can also be heard in the US and in Canada, due to the presence there of Czech immigrants.

The Czech language belongs to the West Slavic languages, which also include Polish and Slovakian. They are so closely related that the languages are easily mutually understandable. The situation is similar to Dutch and Flemish.

Why choose Urgent Vertalen for your legalizations?

A translation from Dutch into Czech is always performed by a translator who is a Czech native speaker. Moreover all our translators are translation graduates at bachelor level or higher.

Every text is unique, so we look at the type of text involved in each translation assignment. We believe it is only right that a native speaker translator who possesses sufficient experience of your professional terminology should perform your translation. So a technical Dutch to Czech translator will never be given a legal document to translate. This is one reason why you can depend on us to deliver a good translation between Czech and Dutch.

As a translation bureau we translate brochures, CVs, correspondence and handbooks on a daily basis. These translations are always performed carefully by one of our native speaker translators. We don't just specialise in Dutch to Czech translation. Our translation bureau also frequently handles other language combinations such as Spanish to Czech or English to Czech.

Many of our new and existing clients, such as government bodies, international businesses and private individuals need an urgent translation of for example a diploma, deed, passport or job application into or from Czech. As a Czech language translation bureau we offer you and our existing clients our fixed competitive tariffs, with no additional so called "urgency surcharge”.

If you are not satisfied with your translation then we will simply refund your money to you!

About the Czech language

The development of the Czech language

Czech developed into its current form in three phases. These phases are known as ‘Old Czech’, ‘Early modern Czech’ and ‘Modern Czech’.

Old Czech

‘Old Czech’ is the term used to refer to the language in the period before the 16th century. One of the most significant developments during that period was the splitting away from the Polish language. This occurred between the 10th and the 12th centuries.

After this the language was first recorded in writing, between the 12th and the 13th centuries. In the 14th century the first administrative documents and literary works appeared, and the first Czech translation of the Bible.

Early modern Czech

Until the 15th century Czech and Slovakian were virtually indistinguishable; they only became clearly separate languages in the 16th century. The Lutheran protestants in Slovakia mainly used the Czech spelling, whilst the Catholics used a separate Slovakian spelling.

The first compete Czech translation of the Bible appeared between 1579 and 1593; this played a significant role in the development of the Czech language in the centuries that followed.

The development of the Czech language progressed rapidly until the country fell under Hapsburg rule in 1620. The government adopted German and Latin as official languages, bringing an end to the development of Czech. The language was only kept alive by the common people, who continued to speak it. The language only began to gain new life at the beginning of the national rebirth, at the end of the 18th century.

Modern Czech

The national rebirth blew new life into the Czech language. The language, as it had developed up to the 16th century, had disappeared. People therefore reverted to the old forms of the language.

In 1809 Josef Dobrovský published a definitive volume on Czech grammar, but he did not expect the language to return. Thanks to his book Josef Jungmann was inspired to write a Czech-German dictionary. This laid the foundation of the modern Czech language.

Some facts about the Czech Republic and the Czech language

Although the Czech Republic is a member of the European Union, the Euro is not used there. The legal tender is the Czech koruna.
Although the Czech language is hardly spoken outside the Czech Republic, the word “robot” is used throughout the world, and this is of Czech origin.
Until 1993 the Czech Republic was not an independent country; it formed part of Czechoslovakia. But the Czech Republic still uses the same flag, whilst Slovakia has adopted a different flag.
