Translation and interpreting services for the Dutch, Belgian and US markets

Medical - Technical - Computer - Legal - Business


What kind of services does Distinctly Dutch offer?
I offer translation (written) and interpreting (spoken) services from English into Dutch/Flemish and from Dutch/Flemish into English to businesses, organizations, and individuals in the Netherlands and Flanders--the Dutch speaking part of Belgium--and in the US. 

Besides translating and interpreting, I also provide the following linguistic services:

  • Linguistic validation and localization of surveys, questionnaires, apps, software etc. to make sure the translation is a cultural equivalent of the original text. Some Dutch words that are used in the Netherlands and Belgium may have different connotations or even a very different meaning depending on the region. 
  • On site linguistic quality assurance to ensure that the translated app and software commands function flawlessly.
  • Voice-of-the-customer interviews/research and consulting with customers in the Netherlands, Belgium and the US; engaging into an in-depth conversation with a customer is more productive if the conversation is conducted in the respondent’s native language.
  • Review of documents obtained through legal discovery in preparation for a deposition or trial.
  • Editing and proofreading of existing translations and texts you have written.
