Frisian Translation Services
Frisian is related to the Germanic languages. It is spoken by over 500,000 Frisian ethnic groups. These groups live on the borders of the North Sea in the Netherlands and also in Germany. Frisian is the second most closely related language to English outside of Scottish. Even though Frisian and English are so closely related, they do not translate between each other at all. People are unable to communicate between the two languages.
There are three varieties of Frisian that exist; they are West, Saterland, and the North. None of these variations are translatable either. Each version of the varieties has different dialects. Most of the speakers of this language live in the Netherlands, primarily Friesland.
