Origin of German Language
Standard German was developed and created over several hundred years into a language that can be understood in most areas in Germany.

German Language – Global Status
The status of national varieties is determined by the a) population size of users, their b) economic and c) political power, d) historical factors (the original heartland of the language), whether the language is the dominant language of the nation, and whether the language is native (as in English in England) or nativized (as English in Singapore).

Germany is a member of the United Nations, NATO, G8, G20, OECD, and the WTO. It holds a key position in European affairs and maintains a multitude of close partnerships on a global level. Germany is recognised as a scientific and technological leader in several fields. Since reunification in 1990, Germany has further extended its commitments and central position in European and global affairs.
Switzerland has a long history of neutrality. It has not been in a state of war internationally since 1815 and was one of the last countries to join the United Nations. Switzerland is home to many international organisations, including the World Economic Forum, the Red Cross, the World Trade Organization and the second largest UN office. On the European level it was a founder of the European Free Trade Association and is part of the Schengen Agreement.
Austria maintains as an independent and diplomatic country despite close relations with Germany and is warmer with its relationship with the US, which is reinforced by Austria’s role as supplier of small arms to the US Army. Austria is part of the Schengen Convention ending border controls between participating EU members. Its geopolitical position gives it considerable influence in Eastern Europe, and exports to the region trebled in the 1990s.
The four states of the region Austria,Lichtenstein, Switzerland and Germany share close historical ties. They formed the core of the medieval German empire (952-1250). This broke up into a number of small states under the political supremacy of the Dukes of Habsburg, who by the 19th Century controlled the Austro-Hungarian empire. Religious wars (The Thirty Years War, 1618-48) left the power of the Roman Catholic Habsburgs greatly reduced among the German states in the West of the region, where Prussia’s rise as a dominant military power created a unified German empire in 1870. Both Austria and Germany were embroiled in the rivalries of World War I (1914-18). With such strong German roots and balancing unity, Austria,Lichtenstein, Switzerland and Germany has made Standard German their original heartland of the language and dominant language of their respective nations.
German language has been used in almost all fields of knowledge.
Academic publications published by German language countries are generally done in Standard German especially for scientific publications and restricted for Europe.
Foreign authors need to know that most German language publishers are based in German cities such as Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Leipzig and Munich. This means that Austrian and Swiss authors need to submit their manuscripts to editors and publishers whose norms may be determined by German Standard German.
