Dutch Technical Translation

Our Dutch technical translators are able to translate documentation in areas as diverse as mechanical engineering, IT, electronics, aviation, chemistry, aeronautics, metallurgy, nuclear, waste management and mining.

Our qualified and vetted Dutch technical translators have a proven track record in their area of specialisation. For extra peace of mind, we are happy to provide mini CVs of the translators who would be involved in your project. This gives you the reassurance that you have the right specialist for the job.

By using translation memory software, our Dutch translators create a linguistic database during the process of translation. This ensures consistency in the use of terms as well as increased productivity and cost savings.

Confidentiality during the translation process

As part of our contract with you, we and our linguists are required to keep all material confidential that is not in the public domain. We are, of course, happy to sign more specific confidentiality agreements if required.

Dutch is a West Germanic language with about 28 million speakers (in 2012), mainly in the Netherlands and Belgium. There are small Dutch-speaking communities in northern France, around Dunkerque. Dutch is also spoken in Aruba, the Netherlands Antilles, Suriname and in Indonesia. The official or standard form of Dutch is known as Algemeen Beschaafd Nederlands (ABN), 'General Civilized Dutch'. It is taught in schools and used by authorities in the Netherlands, Flanders (Belgium), Suriname and the Netherlands Antilles. An association known as the Taalunie (Language Union), which was set up by governments of the Netherlands and Flanders, regulates the orthography and spelling of ABN. Alternative names for ABN are Algemeen Nederlands (AN), General Dutch, and Standaardnederlands, Standard Dutch. The Dutch dialects spoken in Belgium are collectively known as Flemish (Vlaams). They differ to some extent from the Dutch spoken in the Netherlands in terms of intonation and pronunciation, and there are minor differences in vocabulary, including loanwords from French and English not found in Standard Dutch.
