Professional and sworn translators

UvA Talen’s translation agency makes use of an extensive pool of translators, each with their own specialist fields. They work exclusively with professional translators who are native speakers of the language in which they work, and they take care to find the best match between the translator and the particular text in question. Many translators are sworn, which means they are certified to translate your official documents like diplomas and birth registrations.

Experienced in-house editors

At UvA Talen, no text leaves without being closely edited first. All translations are thoroughly double-checked and reviewed by their editors, and if necessary corrected, before being delivered to you. In addition, their specialised revisers check for consistent use of terminology and make sure the tone and style of the text is appropriate. Learn more about UvA Talen’s editing services.
