    Native-speaker translators

    We, as an English translation agency, not only believe that our sworn translators must meet strict admission requirements. A translator from Dutch to English and English to Dutch, who is not sworn in, should also have completed translation training at a minimum of HBO level and demonstrable experience.

    A English translator for every type of professional terminology

    Every text is unique, which is why the type of text is carefully examined with every translation assignment. We take it for granted that there is always a native-speaker translator who has sufficient experience in your professional jargon to work on your translation.

You do not have to make the journey to and from The Hague a number of times, you will save on your travel costs.

    Are you going to an English-speaking country or do you just need a translation?

    What do you want to achieve with your translation? Are you traveling to England or America or do you want to reach an English-speaking target group from the Netherlands? In short, what is your goal? If you’re dealing with a text or document that you want to use in an English-speaking country, think about which form of English you should use. This depends on where your text or document is received. Do they speak and write classical English or American English? In most areas it is not very close. The biggest difference exists between the United Kingdom and the United States. Some words are different. If you want to designate a sweater, in England they say ‘jumper’, where Americans speak of a ‘sweater’. Within the language there are still quite a few words that are used differently, although most English speakers will understand the words, if only from the context. This applies to a greater extent to smaller countries that have English as a second language or when many influences from the language of a neighboring country have entered the English language. English has a relatively large vocabulary, which is due to the fact that Germanic and Romance are intertwined in the language. In Dutch the word ‘freedom’ is a standalone word, while in English it is translated as both ‘freedom’ and ‘liberty’. According to the famous Oxford Dictionary, there are more than 500,000 English words.

    English translation agency with legalization service

    Are you looking for a sworn, legalized English translation? As an English translation agency, you have come to the right place at Urgent Vertalen.

In order for an official document such as a contract or will to be valid in the United States or in the United Kingdom, it is important that the English translation is done by a translator who is specially sworn for this purpose. It may also be a requirement that the sworn translation still has to be officially legalized. It is advisable to coordinate this with the party that needs these documents. Because Urgent Vertalen in The Hague is close to the Court of The Hague, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (CDC) and many consulates, we can quickly switch to legalize your translation for a small fee. It is often even cheaper to have Urgent Vertalen take care of the legalization than to spend the time and travel costs yourself, follow specific strict requirements and go through complicated procedures.

    About English: what matters in any translation

    English is an Indo-European language that has a surprising relationship with Frisian, Low German, Dutch and West Germanic. Until about 1000 years ago, Old English was spoken in England, which was related to the Old Norse language of the Vikings. After the Norman Conquest in 1066, the language developed into Middle English, which is more or less the beginning of the language as we know it today. From the 16th century we speak of New English, which has much more influences from Latin and Old French than its predecessors. Colonization has brought many loanwords into the language, whether or not corrupted into an English-sounding word. Today it is the official language or one of the official languages ​​in 78(!) countries and, after Mandarin and Spanish, the most spoken language in the world. Mainly in spelling, a distinction is made between American English or “classic” English, which is also known as Received Pronunciation (RP).

    Know the different English dialects

    When we talk about the pronunciation, there is a huge list of differences. Real dialects do not exist, however, the differences between, for example, the English spoken in New York and that in San Francisco is not huge, while there are about 4000 kilometers between them. If we compare Twente with South Holland, the difference is greater at a much smaller distance. Every English-speaking country has its own sounds, although it never really differs much from the original language. The difference between English and American is easy to hear, while the difference between the South African and Australian accent is not equally clear to everyone. Whether you have to take a dialect into account depends on the purpose of your translation.

    Know the purpose of the translation

    What is the purpose of your translation? Do you want to translate certain medical documents or do you need a translation for your stay in an English-speaking country? What is the purpose of the translation? Suppose you want to translate certain documents for a holiday to an English-speaking country, think in advance which documents are mandatory and which obligations they must meet. In the United States in particular, you cannot avoid red tape that can sometimes be unclear.

    When it comes to official documents, opt for a sworn translation

    If you use the translation for your website or a local advertisement, for example, first assess who will read the translation.
