Dutch - Nederlands
Small on the world map, the Dutch language is large on the Internet, ranking twelfth in terms of online users. As national language of the tech-savvy Netherlands, Dutch, its Belgian variant Flemish, and South African variant Afrikaans, have an importance exceeding that of several languages with far more native speakers.
Dutch is the second most-spoken Germanic language on the European continent. It shares a great deal in common with its neighboring German, but the two are by no means mutually comprehensible.
Accordingly, many of the features that make German a difficult language for a person to learn or a computer to process are also seen in Dutch.
Its wide reach online makes Dutch one of the languages that we at Gistology pride ourselves on serving.
