Dutch could be described as the halfway point between English and German. It is a descendant of the Germanic branch of the Indo-European languages and has evolved and simplified its structures further than German.
Dutch is spoken as a native language by 28 million people, mainly in the Netherlands, Belgium and Suriname. The Netherlands boasts a mature online market, with an internet penetration of 92.2%.
Dutch uses the Latin alphabet with only very minor revision - and doesn't have cases or too many accents to cause any problems. One major issue for search marketers is deciding when to use a translated search term into correct Dutch - or what might well be the more popular adopted English version.
Google Netherlands accounts for more than 93% of all searches carried out on the Dutch web, keeping all competitors at bay.
