"Big importance" or "big interest" are not said in any English dialect that I'm aware of (of course there may be exceptions!). They feel so awkward to say.

Agree! "utmost importance" should be accepted here.

To use "utmost importance" the Dutch sentence would be "Deze informatie is van het grootste belang"

Is "Deze informatie heeft groot belang" completely wrong? (What about "This information has great importance"?)
