    Having your texts officially translated

    Translating literally means the conversion of a spoken or written text into the desired target language. But literally converting a text into its target language, simply isn’t enough for commercial, professional and official purposes. One of the key points when translating a text, is that the message is translated without errors and with the correct content into the target language. It is also essential that when a translated text is read, it should be as if it was written by a ‘native’ in the country of the reader and does not appear to be a translation at all. That is why you should have your texts translated by professional translators. Translating is a profession. By working with a professional, you are assured of a correct transfer of information and an understanding of (the purpose of) your text. A translation bureau will not only professionally translate your documents, but it will also be done error-free, quickly and without loss of important information. Urgent Vertalen is the translation bureau to be, for accurate, error-free and fast translations at competitive rates.

    Everything you need to know about translating texts

    Text translations? The advantage of working with a translation bureau

    Translating a text from Dutch to English or another language is a service that requires specific skills. Besides being linguistically gifted, a translator must also have knowledge of the nature and subject of the document to be translated. Of course we are not born with this knowledge. First, a translator must have completed an education program in the field of languages, follwed by gaining the necessary translation experience. Next, our translators must participate in various courses during the year. This is not only to stay up-to-date on the language of their expertise, but also to allow them to specialize in and deepen their knowledge of a particular domain. Our translators go beyond the black and white translation of your text. They do everything they can to ensure that you receive an error-free, powerful text in which your message is presented flawlessly in the target language, with use of the correct terms and desired tone-of-voice.

    The importance of the proper translation of a text

    The quality of a translated text is extremely important. A poorly translated text can easily influence the impression that your company makes in a negative way. Whether it concerns a commercial text, contract or an official document for a judicial authority. Not only do we refer to language errors in the text, but also to substantive errors that will prevent the message from getting across. Even though online translation machines are getting smarter, they deliver literal translations, making a text highly prone to errors and looking unprofessional. To us, translation truly is human work, which is best left to professional translators who look beyond the words. By translating the context, abbreviations and terms correctly, you avoid miscommunication and making an unprofessional impression.

    Text translations performed by the translators of Urgent Vertalen

    Our team consists of several native speakers who translate texts from and into more than 32 different languages. At Urgent Vertalen, each translation is seen and treated as unique and we strongly believe that translating is human work. To guarantee a good translation, our translators are both native speakers of the language into which they translate and familiar with the sector for which they translate the documents. Because our translators have in-depth knowledge of the type and subject of the document that they translate, we are able to guarantee the quality of our work and assure proper information transfer.

    Having your online texts translated

    Even though the headquarters of Urgent Vertalen are located in The Hague, we mainly work location-independent. This means that you can have your text translated by our translation bureau from anywhere in the world. We offer our services online, so that we can help companies in the Netherlands and abroad with quality translations of official and unofficial documents. Because we are located close to the Court of The Hague, important consulates and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, we are able to take our services to a higher level. In addition to the quality translations that we provide, we also offer legalization services. For more information, continue reading below.

    What types of text do we translate?

    As a translation bureau, we translate various types of unofficial and official documents and texts. Whether it concerns a tattoo, complex legal documentation, love letters, website texts or a medical file, within every domain we work with specialized translators who always provide the best quality translation. Translators who are specialized in the translation of commercial texts, for example, will always make sure that they translate the text with use of the ‘tone-of-voice’ that the client has in mind. To really convey the message of a text, we also keep a close eye on what the logical translation is for the country of the target language. To that end, our translators will sometimes present the client with multiple options including an explanation in the margin. Other texts can be translated more freely, which means that the translation may deviate from the source text. Our translators are more than happy to think along with you, but for the translation of official documents such as a deed or a contract, the text will often have to be translated literally and straight forward. Here it is extremely important that the knowledge, information and terminology are accurately translated into the target language. Are you interested in the translation of another type of document? That is not a problem! We also deliver translations of other types of documentation. Would you like to know more about the possibilities, our rates and the turnaround time for your translation?

    Who will translate your text?

    To guarantee the quality of our work, we work with a permanent team of translators. These translators are hired based on a number of fixed criteria, so that we can provide our clients with the best translations. For example, they must be native in their language of translation and have a bachelor’s degree or higher in this area of expertise. Our translators are also specialists in the translation of documents from, for example, the medical, financial and legal sectors. With this twofold background they do not only ensure flawless translations, but they also understand the content of the documents. Because our translators are familiar with frequently used terms and abbreviations, they will use them correctly and appropriately in the target language of the translation. At Urgent Vertalen we also employ sworn translators, who are sworn in by the court and are therefore allowed to provide official translations. On top of that, we think that it is very important for our translators to keep up-to-date with recent and relevant developments. That is why they have to follow a number of courses each year, to refresh their knowledge and to closely follow developments within their fields of expertise. We always assign your translation to the translator who is most suitable for the job. Not only does this mean that this translator is a native in the language of the translation, but also that he/she has thorough knowledge of the type and subject of your document(s).

And throughout the years, our team has been expanding with many different languages and specialties.

And for some documents it is required that they are legalized. Because the office of Urgent Vertalen is centrally located in The Hague, we are able to offer our clients this service and to get in touch with the right authorities quickly for the legalization of your translated document(s). It is this service that makes that many companies know where to find us, to entrust us with their official documentation in complete confidence.
