Research has shown that English-language online retailers are targeting French speakers. The study by One Hour Translation looked at 4,000 â€śtranslation projectsâ€ť on European ecommerce sites, and found that whilst English to French was the most common translation with 13.5%, that was followed by English to German on 13.4% and English to Dutch with a 11.3% share. Surprisingly, Dutch came above translations into Spanish or Italian. Yaron Kaufman from One Hour Translation said that it was â€śnot surprisingâ€ť since â€śGermany and France are the strongest economies in Continental Europeâ€ť. However, he did add that he believed Dutch coming a strong third demonstrated â€śthe resilience of the economy and purchasing power of the Netherlands compared to other European countriesâ€ť.
