Who Are We?

Vind-een-vertaler is a group of experienced Dutch / English translators, editors, text writers, interpreters and trainers. We are independent language professionals based in the Netherlands with language and/or other academic qualifications. We offer cost-effective language services such as translation, editing / correcting, copywriting, interpreting and training.

Vind-een-vertaler is an association of language businesses registered with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce (KvK number 08206653).


Most of us have worked outside the communication field and hence we have built up a wealth of experience in addition to language-related skills. Fields of expertise we cover include agriculture, biology, chemistry, education, engineering, IT and computing, marketing, medical, occupational therapy and sociology.

Vind-een-vertaler: English language communication support from professionals

On 5 March 2010, a Netherlands-based group of English language professionals launched www.vind-een-vertaler.nl. In just a few clicks this portal website takes visitors to the right professional support for their English language communication needs - whether they are looking for a translator, an editor, a copywriter, an interpreter or a language trainer.

Vind-een-vertaler is not a translation agency, it is the initiative of a group of experienced, independent English language professionals, each with an impressive track record in their own area of expertise. Many of these specialists in, for instance, academic, technical, financial or legal English have acquired their sometimes highly specific terminology know-how while working as practitioners in these fields, before they entered the communications business.

Visitors to Vind-een-vertaler can search the database for the right professional in two ways:

  • On the basis of the services they offer (translation, editing, copywriting, interpreting or training)
  • On the basis of the subjects they specialise in (for example architecture, medicine, law, IT and sciences)

By clicking on a name, visitors are taken to a separate page with an extensive profile and contact details. They can then get in touch and do business directly with the language professional of their choice.

Co-founder Dave Thomas: "We all offer a wealth of experience in our own particular fields, but we recognise that customers sometimes need more or different skills than each of us alone can provide. By joining forces in Vind-een-vertaler, we can offer our customers not only the exact service they are looking for, but also the quality and expertise they are used to getting from us."
