NL Translations

NL translations is part of Vertaalbureau Noorderlicht BV, The Netherlands. NL is short not only for Noorderlicht (Northern Lights), the Dutch name of our company, but also for the Dutch language, our native tongue.

Our professional translation agency has a large team of highly experienced translators who guarantee the rapid and expert translation of your work. Established in 1996 in Groningen, we deliver excellent translations at a competitive rate. Our clients – who vary from international enterprises to private individuals – can rest assured that their needs will be met at our agency, which is now located in Amersfoort.

Our translators live all over the world and work closely together with us to guarantee perfect translations. Whether you need promotional website texts or clear instructional manuals, Vertaalbureau Noorderlicht ensures a professional translation.

In order to be able to provide the best possible translation quality, at least two highly qualified professionals work on the text: a source-language native speaker and a target-language native speaker. For each client and document, we choose and assign the most appropriate translator-proofreader team.

We have specialised translators for legal, technical, medical and financial documents, who have an in-depth knowledge of the specific terminology in these fields. In addition, we have considerable experience in translating websites, commercial and tourism texts for our clients. In such translations, it is not merely about conveying the correct meaning, but it is also important that the text reads well, is written in an engaging style and appeals to the readers. Our translators take all this into account and work towards this in the most creative manner possible.

Naturally we provide certified translations as well. If you need a certified translation, you can scan your official document (resolution: 300 DPI) and send it to us using our contact form. You will receive a free quotation for your certified translation within one working day.

You can also contact us for interpreting services, revision, proofreading or professional DTP services. Please see our contact form for more information and a free quotation.
