Dutch translation services
On-time delivery guaranteed, with no surcharges ever
An eye for detail
Dutch is spoken at native level by around 24 million people, primarily in Holland, Belgium and France, although, thanks to Dutch settlers, Dutch is still the official language in Suriname to this day. The language is often taken together with the Flemish used in the northern part of Belgium, which is practically identical to Dutch, although some consider it important to emphasise the differences between the two languages. With the help of our native translators, we are up to speed on the slight nuances and constant changes. In order to avoid making mistakes, even when we translate the most complex texts, three experts work on each project: a translator, an editor and a proofreader. All of them work as a full-time translator with at least 5 years’ experience in translation, are native speakers of Dutch and hold a degree in translation.
Translating specialist documents from Dutch or to Dutch
We mainly offer translations from various European (and Asian) languages into Dutch, while we naturally translate out of Dutch too. We undertake the translation of countless types of documents, including clinical trial documentation, technical manuals and licence agreements.
We guarantee the very highest quality for all translations we undertake. We expect the translators at Albion Languages to be almost as experienced in the topic of the translation as the author of the document. In the case of technical, scientific and medical translations, for example, the author and the target audience often have a degree in medicine or a PhD – just like our translators.

The Dutch language
The modern Dutch language belongs to the Germanic languages, therefore people who speak both English and German have a great advantage when they start learning Dutch. The English word “Dutch” derived from the word “Deutsch,” which is how Germans call themselves and means folk, national. The English language used “Dutch” to refer to all Germanic speakers on the European mainland for a long time. By contrast, the word “Holland” refers to the name of the most important province of the Low Countries.
Did you know?
The Dutch language is full of unbelievably long words, of which the longest is the 53-letter word, “kindercarnavalsoptochtvoorbereidingswerkzaamhedenplan,” which means “a plan for preparation activities for a children’s carnival procession.”
The Dutch language likes to use consonants. For example, “slechtstschrijvend” (“worst-writing”) contains 9 consecutive consonants.
In the Dutch language, there is a word, “gezellig,” which can only be described in most languages but cannot be translated. It is used to say when something is pleasant, familiar, friendly. This word can refer to practically anything: situations, people, places.
75% of Dutch vocabulary consists of loanwords.
The original name of Wall Street in the United States (de Waal Straat) is of Dutch origin.
