Much more than a first-class translation company


English Services is a leading translation company based in the Netherlands and the preferred supplier to many well-known international companies. We offer much more than just first-class translations. In fact we provide a comprehensive package of services that will help you overcome language and cultural barriers in business.


Doing business internationally is paved with unique challenges and sometimes we forget how important it is to be clear in our communications. The choice of language is an obvious issue to deal with, yet cultural differences, etiquette, norms and traditions can also have a direct influence on how well your message is received.


Dutch or Flemish?

For British companies, for instance, it is all too easy to assume that communication is going to be easy in countries close to home. This is particularly true for the Benelux. The level of English in these regions is high, but there is a very distinct difference between having a valuable conversation at a networking event, and being able to promote your products and services in a foreign country. When doing business in the Benelux for example, it is important to be aware of the local linguistic divides and the fact that Dutch and Flemish are two distinct languages.


Language barriers

Business can be a minefield at the best of times, why let language be a barrier?


At English Services we want to help all of our customers succeed in their international ambitions. We can ensure that legal agreements are just as airtight in a second or third language as they are in the original. We can help you translate and adapt your marketing presentations, your brochures, websites, technical documentation, packaging, certificates and informal communication. Each type of text involves a very different process, and deserves professional support.


Don’t underestimate the power of language, and don’t hesitate to call us for help and advice.
