Geographical territory of Germany has plenty of mountain regions and large forest areas and because of the isolation of its population, there were many dialects in the German language throughout history. The only thing that caused language unification was development of a culture and art as well as desire to bring those works of art closer to the population.
Translation of Martin Luther’s Bible had great influence on the development of the German language, because it was based on the Middle German dialect that was dominant then. Up until 19th century difference between written and spoken German was big. Today’s standard German was created as written language.
