The translation department of the Academic Language Centre (ATC) has a wealth of experience in translating from Dutch into English and English into Dutch. It is professional and reliable and provides a quality service.


Your written assignments will be translated quickly and expertly. Our translations include academic texts, correspondence, project documentation, training manuals and more.


If you have translated a text from Dutch into English, we can edit it for you. We use native speakers for our editing assignments. They also consider the intended style and target group of the text.
