The Dutch language is the official language of the Netherlands. The name Dutch comes from the word Dietsc, or Duutsc, which was the name of the language in the Middle Ages. It meant "language of the people." In the Netherlands, the Dutch language is also called Nederlands or Hollands—the latter serving as a reminder that the language evolved from the dialect of the old province of Holland. Dutch is a Germanic language of the Indo-European language family. The earliest documents in Dutch date from approximately the end of the 12th century.
