Why choose DutchLink?

At DutchLink, we do what we say on the tin – we only do Dutch and our specialist fields are legal and commercial translations. That means we have built up expertise over the years, for the benefit of our clientele.

How long will my document take to translate?

Delivery times vary depending on factors such as legibility of the original text, complicated formatting, difficulty of the Dutch source text. It’s always best to send the document you need translating to us and then we can provide you with a proper quote. If your document is extremely urgent, we can also offer a rush service at extra cost.

How do I know you’re bona fide translators?

Both Elizabeth and Marion are fully qualified members of the Institute of Translation and Intepreting, which is your guarantee of quality. The ITI only accepts linguists of the very highest calibre, meaning you can rest assured that we have passed the most stringent of quality tests.

What quality checks do you put in place?

Alongside our years of experience, we consult regularly with each other on all aspects of the translation process. Having a second opinion – the ‘four-eyes’ principle – is invaluable with translation work. Although dictionaries are a good starting point, they often only tell half the story. In-depth expertise on usage and idiom can only be gained from another professional.

Are you members of a recognised body?

Both Marion and Elizabeth are full members of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting. This gives you complete peace of mind knowing that we are both accountable to the Institute for upholding the highest standards in the translation profession.
