Polish (język polski, or polszczyzna) is a West Slavic language that is spoken by about 40 million people. Outside Poland, Polish is spoken in Belarus, Ukraine, and Lithuania, among others. Despite its vast territory and 40 million speakers, Polish has remarkably few dialects.
Part of the Dutch loan words in Polish entered the language via trade between the cooperating Hanseatic cities, which included the Polish city of Gdansk. However, most Dutch loan words ended up in Polish via Russian through Tsar Peter the Great, including handel, leveren, majtek, matjas, halfwind, matros, bak, kambuz, konwój, kran, and lakmus. But the unavoidable ‘polder’ and the globally known concept of ‘apartheid’ can be found in Polish as well. Perhaps more surprising is that the Polish word ‘biustonosz’ comes from the Dutch ‘bustehouder’.
Language and culture are interconnected. To get the most out of a translator, it is best if they have their language and culture around them all the time. That is why we like working with in-country translators, Polish translators who live in Poland and are native speakers of Polish. After all, a translation is more than a correct conversion of words and sentences; it should also properly address the intended target audience.
