Mr Chris P. Odijk (sworn translator for the English language) and Ms Xandra Lammers (translator and interpreter for the English language) organize Dutch to English and English to Dutch translation courses as well as legal English courses. In addition, we provide Dutch to English and English to Dutch translation services.
Yearlong Legal Translation Course
The yearlong Dutch-English / English-Dutch Legal Translation Course − the most comprehensive course in this field in the Netherlands − has existed since 1991 and will be held in an online form for the second time in the year 2022-2023. There are two versions of the course: the online course (Microsoft Teams sessions) and the correspondence course (by email).
General Translation Course
Since 2008 we have also offered the Dutch-English / English-Dutch General Translation Course. This course, too, has two versions: the online course and the correspondence course.
Shorter Specialization Courses & Workshops
In addition to the regular legal translation course, shorter specialization courses and one-day special theme workshops will be organized
All courses aimed at translators and interpreters qualify for points under the Permanent Education System for Sworn Interpreters and Translators (PE points).
