    Default PA Dutch

    Hey, is anyone familiar with PA Dutch? I just had a client request this language, but I've never heard of it before.

    Thanks!

    It seems it is a variety of West Central German spoken by the Amish in America...

    Oh wow! That explains why my client speaks with a strange accent in that case. Thanks! Adam

    Yes, I managed to find resource located in Pennsylvania that work in this language. However, since there are not a lot of resources the translations are quite expensive.

    I've been told it's more similar to German than to Dutch. I guess it should have been named PA German .
