Why choose Urgent Vertalen for your legalizations?

A translation from Dutch into Swedish is always performed by a translator who is a Swedish 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 Swedish 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 Swedish 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 Swedish translation. Our translation bureau also frequently handles other language combinations such as Spanish to Swedish or English to Swedish.

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 Swedish. As a Swedish 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 Swedish language and Sweden

What are the origins of Swedish?

Old Norwegian formed the basis of the modern Swedish language, and this is where the development of Swedish began. Old Norwegian was widely spoken by Vikings in Scandinavia during the 8th century. Eventually the language divided into an Eastern and a Western version.

The Eastern version of the language comprised today’s Swedish and Danish and over time these languages became further divided. The Dutch language has had a lot of influence on Swedish.

The Dutch influence on Swedish

Dutch and Low German have had an extensive influence on the Swedish language. Above all in the middle ages, due to trade within the Hanseatic League and the Swedish Golden Era.

In 1611 Gustaaf ll Adolfs was crowned King of Sweden, after which he carried out extensive reforms within the Swedish army and brought in a large number of mercenaries from the Dutch Republic. Besides the mercenaries many merchants from this area travelled to Sweden. They contributed to Sweden’s economy and its culture.

The Dutch played a major role in building up the city of Göteborg. They exercised a great deal of influence and drew up the city plan. A number of Dutch people sat on the city council and the Mayor was Dutch, Jakob van Dijck. Dutch became recognised as an official language in Sweden, naturally alongside Swedish.

The effect of this Dutch influence on Swedish is that the vocabulary contains a variety of Dutch words, particularly those relating to navigation. A number of other words were borrowed from Dutch, such as bankier (banker), geweer (gun), gracht (canal), vowel and afnemer (customer).
