"Hence" literally means "from here" or "from this point". There are also its archaic relatives "thence" and "whence?", but we really only use "hence" these days. "Thus" means "as a result". Modern Dutch has a cognate: "dus". There's some overlap in their meanings, so you might be able to use either.
