Flemish (Belgian) Translators
Number of people speaking:
Flemish is spoken by around 5.5 million people in Belgium, 250,000 people in Zeelandic Flanders (Netherlands), and approximately 40,000 people in France.
Flemish (Fleish) is also known as Belgian Dutch (Belgisch-Nederlands), is a Dutch language variant spoken in the northern Flanders region of Belgium. There are four main dialects Brabantian, East Flemish, West Flemish and Limburgish. West Flemish and Limburgish are considered by some linguists to be separate languages rather than dialects.
Brabantian is the most widely spoken dialect, it also includes Antwerpish which is a closely related dialect specifically used in the city of Antwerp and surrounding area. Brabantian is also the leading contributor to Tussentaal (in between language) which is an informal mix of all the main dialects and Dutch, which is used in daily speech. Experts have noted that Tussentaal has becoming increasingly standardized over the last few decades and may eventually emerge as an entirely new language.
Zeelandic Flanders is a province in the south western Netherlands, the people in the region speak Zeelandic Flemish which is also known as Seelandish. This dialect is closely related to West Flemish and Hollandic, however in the eastern part of the province the language spoken is closer to East Flemish or Brabantian.
French Flemish is a dialect similar to West Flemish; it’s spoken in the area known as French Flanders. Although it’s regarded as a minority dialect, French Flemish is spoken in the towns of Dunkirk, Bourbourg, Calais, Saint-Omer, Bailleul and Haut-Pont. French Flemish is used daily by around 20,000 people, but it’s estimated that twice that number are occasional speakers. A movement to retain and promote the language in the area has been active for over three decades.
Primarily in Belgium and France.
Some Fun Facts about Belgium:
Belgium is the undisputed world hub for Diamonds, it’s estimated that almost 90% of the world’s Diamonds are polished and distributed from there. The value of net polished Diamonds exported from Belgium totaled over $1.5 Billion in 2011 alone.
Although they are called ‘French Fries’ it’s the Belgians that deserve the credit for the tasty potato snack. During World War I foreign soldiers saw French speaking people eating the fries, which are called ‘frites’ in Belgium. The soldiers misunderstood and thought that the natives were actually French, not Belgian, but the name stuck. Incidentally ‘French Fries’ in Belgium are served with Mayonnaise instead of Ketchup.
