German websites and German website design

Websites in the German language

Cornish services have designed websites in German such as the website below for a leading European Logistics company.

We have also developed websites for tourism such as Looe and Polperro Holidays. German holiday makers especially enjoy finding holidays away from the south east of England in the countryside or coast.

Other German websites include a website for a language school and an ecommerce shop selling specialist medical shoes.


Issues when designing German websites

The German language uses the Latin character set. Like English, German is written from left to right.

German websites require more room for text than English websites, so this can impact on menus and general layout. German words also tend to be longer which again can impact the visual appearance of the website.

The German language code is DE, short for Deutsch, the German for 'German'.

German domain names

A German domain name (.de) is beneficial in terms of making the website look more German to German speakers and it also helps get higher rankings in the search engines.

Hosting in Germany can be more expensive than elsewhere, and many German websites are hosted elsewhere, often in France or Belgium or the US.

Search Engine Marketing in German

Google is the most dominant search engine in Germany (as in the UK) with a market share of over 80%.

Cornish can provide different levels of search marketing in German. For all websites we design we automatically submit these to Yahoo and Google. We are also able to offer varying levels of ongoing search engine marketing and paid search (PPC) advertising. For paid advertising the most important in Germany is Google then Yahoo. We have experience of search marketing in the German search markets.

Website Design

As you know we were really pleased with the Rethink the Horse Tax website you put together for us, and we’re proud to say that the campaign has so far been well received. Over 10,000 people have signed the petition to which the website links, which is great news.
