For several decades, UvA Talen has been one of the leading high-quality language agencies in the Netherlands. In recent years, however, the market for translations has radically changed.

The market for translations changed in recent times. As a relatively small provider of high-quality translations, this put us in an increasingly vulnerable position. Dependence on large tender contracts, ‘competition’ from increasingly competent machine translations, and the consequent pressure to have highly-trained specialists work for ever-lower rates, ultimately led us to conclude that there was no longer room for the kind of translation services we wanted to offer.

With regret, but with pride in the excellent work we produced over the decades, we closed our translation agency in October. We would like to thank everyone who worked with us or for us, including our many wonderful clients, for the trust you placed in us. We always took great pleasure and satisfaction in our translation work.

And we take just as much pleasure in continuing to provide language training for everyone who wants to enrich their language skills!
