Netherlands Google Holland: Homepage, Search, Webhp: English, Dutch: Nederland: nl

Updated on August 3, 2016

Google Netherlands is available in Dutch. It is also possible to see the classic search page in languages that are not Dutch (Nederlands), by adding an alternative ISO639-2 language code at the end of the Google webhp URL stub: 'http://www.google.nl/webwp?hl='.

Apart from Dutch (~15m), there are significant populations within Holland that speak Frisian (~500k), Indonesian (300k), Turkish (~200k), Papiamentu (80k), Chinese (70k), Malay (45k), Arabic (30k), Vietnamese (16k), and Tamil (~7k). Dutch speakers also have significant capabilities in other languages such as English, German and French. Example screenshots of Netherlands Google in relevant alternative languages are given throughout this article.

Google 'Netherlands'

When you Google 'Netherlands', 'The Netherlands', 'Holland', or 'Nederland', the sort of articles you receive as search results are established information sites, such as Wikipedia, World Factbook and Netherlands government tourism sites, but they will be different for each different search name you enter.

Seeing Google Netherlands In an Alternative Language.

Changing the language code from 'nl', for example:

http://www.google.nl/webhp?hl=nl

to another ISO639-2 language code, will give you Google NL in that alternative language.

For instance, for English ('en'), the URL becomes:

http://www.google.nl/webhp?hl=en

allowing you to view Netherlands Google in English.


A table of Google supported languages is given below, after 'comments'.

Once upon a time you could limit your search results to a local country, or to the local language. Google no longer facilitates this useful function. This means it is now more difficult for businesses to undertake competition analysis, locally.

There is an alternative: Firefox Google search, for the Netherlands. This facilitates these functions, and businesses can undertake local business analysis by limiting results to local Netherlands results.

Using the Firefox URL:

http://www.google.nl/firefox?client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:nl-NL:official

gives Netherlands results in Dutch. This URL works with any browser (a screenshot of the webpage is shown below).

When on the Firefox page ensure the Doorzoek (Search) 'pagina's in het Nederlands' or 'pagina's uit Nederland' button is set, instead of Doorzoek 'het internet' button.

Using this URL will give you either pages written in Dutch, or Netherlands pages, according to which button you set.
