See below, what kind of changes to the text might be expected for translations from German to Persian or vice versa.

Translation differences

Translation from German to Persian or vice versa entails certain changes in the resulting text. These changes are caused by the inherent differences between the languages. The following things in your order might be affected:

  • The layout of the resulting text
  • Time it takes to translate
  • Translation complexity

Among other factors, these parameters can influence the final price as well. The layout factor is especially important to those, who are interested in our DTP (Desktop Publishing) services.

Text length and document layout

The main factors influencing the length and layout of the translated document are:

  • Writing system of the target language
  • Writing direction
  • Word length
  • Relative lengths of the texts

Writing system

German uses Latin alphabet, whereas Persian employs Arabic abjad. It may make the translated text shorter or longer than the original, and makes selecting the correct font for the target language essential. Given the same font size, Latin symbols are generally 67% larger than the Arabic ones.

Writing direction

German is read left-to-right, but Persian — right-to-left. It means that, in the translated document, the order of the text and visual elements should be reversed. This is crucial for technical documents and visual instructions, and demands additional work from the DTP specialists.

Word length

Words in German are, on average, 7 characters long, and Persian words are 5 characters long. This might result in lines of text not being distributed similarly between the source and the target text.

Text length

On average, documents translated to German are 47% longer than source texts in Persian. On the other hand, Persian texts are 32% shorter than their German counterparts. It means that some formatting differences are to be expected in the translated texts. Please note, that the actual visual length is also influenced by the font used.

Word order

Depending on your needs, the word order might be rather important for the translation. Things like slogans and brand names may convey an entirely different meaning, if their word order is changed.

The standard word orders of the languages are different. Various sentence structures may still be possible, but they might have a different meaning or change their style. However, it must be noted, that German has a free word order. This implies that translations from Persian to German will usually allow preserving your desired sentence structure.

Translation complexity

Translation complexity is partially dependent on how closely the languages are related. The further apart the languages are, the more time and effort it takes to express an idea from one language in another one. As a consequence, it affects the price and time it takes to translate a document between German and Persian.

Both German and Persian belong to the Indo-European language family. The German language, however, represents the Germanic branch of the family, while Persian is a member of the Iranian branch. It is not as drastic of a difference as between members of distinct families, but the discrepancy still provides some challenge to the translator.
