Polish translation bureau Urgent Vertalen

Have your document translated quickly and economically

Poland has been a member of the European Union since 1 May 2004, and this has led to significant growth in interest in this country and its language.

The Polish language is a Western Slavic language, with approximately 40 million speakers. 38.6 million Polish speakers are resident in Poland itself. Other Polish speakers are mainly resident in former soviet union countries and in the United States.

The Polish language is closely related to Slovakian, Czech and Serbian

Legalization of your Polish translation

It can happen that your sworn Polish translation will also need to be legalised for the country where you wish to use it. We have set out what is needed for a legalization on a country by country basis.

Why choose Urgent Vertalen for your legalizations?

A translation from Dutch into Polish is always performed by a translator who is a Polish 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 Polish 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 Polish 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 Polish translation. Our translation bureau also frequently handles other language combinations such as Spanish to Polish or English to Polish.

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 Polish. As a Polish 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!

The Polish language = Polszczyzna or Jezyk Polski

Western Slavic language

Just like Czech and Slovakian, Polish is a Western Slavic language, and is one of the Indo-European languages. These languages share a lot in common, though they are not mutually understandable.

The Western Slavic population was mostly Roman Catholic, whilst the Eastern Slavic peoples were adherents of Eastern Orthodox Christianity. That is why Western Slavic countries use the Roman alphabet, which is used in surrounding countries. Polish uses the Latin (Roman) alphabet and has 32 letters, with the q, v and x not being used in the Polish alphabet apart from in the case of loan words.

The extra letters with diacritical characters compensate for the limitation of all the sounds of the Polish language.

Polish as mother tongue

Since Poland has been a member of the European Union many Polish people work in the Netherlands and in Belgium, and speak their mother tongue here.

Because many Jews emigrated from Poland and the Czech Republic to Israel after the Second World War there are now 100,000 people living there who still have Polish as their mother tongue.

Polish is spoken in Poland itself, in Germany, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine and Israel. It is also spoken in the United States. In total there are approximately 40 million people with Polish as their mother tongue


There are not many dialects of Polish. Most Poles speak the standard language. There are five major dialect groups: Greater Polish (around Poznañ), Lesser Polish around Krakow), Mazovian (around Warsaw), Silesian (in Upper Silesia) and Kashubian (to the west of Gdansk).

The smaller dialect groups are: the Podhale dialect (of the mountain people) and Kresy, which is still spoken among the elderly.

These days the Kashubian and Silesian dialects are regarded as separate, independent languages

Nasal sounds and articulation

The pronunciation of the Lechitic languages is characterised by the proto-Slavic nasal sounds.
The strongly palatalised consonants (palatalise = a form of articulation of consonants in which they are pronounced more softly) are also characteristic of the Polish language, as is a fixed emphasis on the penultimate syllable, paroxytone.
In Polish spelling letter combinations are used for a number of sounds (phonemes), such as the ch, cz and sz

Seven grammatical cases and no articles

Polish grammar includes seven grammatical cases and the inflection of nouns and the conjugation of the verbs are extremely complicated.
And finally, one striking feature of the language is that Polish has no articles. This is typical of a Slavic language.
