Why choose Urgent Vertalen for your legalizations?

A translation from Dutch into Croatian is always performed by a translator who is a Croatian native speaker. Moreover all our translators are translation graduates at bachelor level or higher.

Every text is unique, so we look at the type of text involved in each translation assignment. We believe it is only right that a native speaker translator who possesses sufficient experience of your professional terminology should perform your translation. So a technical Dutch to Croatian translator will never be given a legal document to translate. This is one reason why you can depend on us to deliver a good translation between Croatian and Dutch.

As a translation bureau we translate brochures, CVs, correspondence and handbooks on a daily basis. These translations are always performed carefully by one of our native speaker translators. We don't just specialise in Dutch to Croatian translation. Our translation bureau also frequently handles other language combinations such as Spanish to Croatian or English to Croatian.

Many of our new and existing clients, such as government bodies, international businesses and private individuals need an urgent translation of for example a diploma, deed, passport or job application into or from Croatian. As a Croatian language translation bureau we offer you and our existing clients our fixed competitive tariffs, with no additional so called "urgency surcharge”.

If you are not satisfied with your translation then we will simply refund your money to you!

About the Croatian language and Croatia

The Croatian alphabet

Until the 11th century Croatian made use of 3 alphabets, namely Latin, Cyrillic and Glagolytic. Serbian and Russian still use the Cyrillic alphabet to this day. Nowadays Croatian uses an extended version of the Latin alphabet. Glagolitic is the oldest of the alphabets that were developed for the Slavic languages, but this alphabet is no longer in use.

The linguist Ljudevit Gaj put together the definitive version of the Croatian – Latin alphabet in 1835. He used the Czech alphabet as his inspiration. Some people call the Croatian alphabet Gaj's Latin alphabet, or Gajica.

Some facts about Croatia

  • The smallest town in the world is in Croatia. On the Istrian peninsula lies Hum, which has only 2 streets, 12 houses and 27 residents.
  • Croatia has the first water-powered organ in the world. The organ is to be found in the coastal town of Zadar. The movements of the sea force air through the tubes. Different notes are played, depending on the strength of the waves.
  • The most famous beach in Croatia is Zlatni Rat. This beach of white pebbles is in the shape of a horn, but its appearance keeps changing. Due to the currents, waves and wind direction the shape is constantly shifting. The point usually points towards the east, but sometimes also towards the west. Some days the beach is a bit longer than on other days.
  • The Croat Eduard Penkala invented both the fountain pen and the ballpoint pen.
  • In Ludbreg there is a fountain which emits wine instead of water once per year. This happens each year on 1 April, Ludbreg’s official public holiday.
  • Most of the eastern Adriatic coast belongs to Croatia.
