Language Differences

Language is a factor of importance in Belgium. The country is divided into roughly three language areas, namely: Dutch, French and German. To serve the market well, it is essential to offer a web shop in at least Dutch as well as French.

Dutch content is not a copy/paste issue: nuance differences are crucial. Consider information such as "Our customer service is available in the afternoon. In Belgium this means: from 12:00 to 14:00. And not until 18:00, as is customary in the Netherlands.

Cultural and domestic differences

Dutch directness is not always appreciated. In addition, hierarchical structures are more valued in Belgium. When communicating with Belgian consumers, it is therefore wise to be careful with tutoring and vousvoyeren.

The differences go beyond national borders. Entrepreneurs must take into account the differences between Flanders and Wallonia. Since 2010, the Flemish economy has been growing exponentially compared to Wallonia.

Thereby, we see in the unemployment rate of 10% in Wallonia, a big difference from the 4.4% in Flanders. Knowledge of these differences helps in interpreting the turnover figures.
