Avanti is performing well. We are regularly tapping into new markets and finding new partners. Over recent years we have created a number of strategic alliances with other translation agencies in the Netherlands and abroad. Last year, for example, we merged with Fides Vertaalservice. And even now,

A CAT is a translation done with the help of the computer. But not by the computer. Underpinning every high-quality translation is the work of one of our top translators. The computer doesn’t translate anything itself: it builds up a store of translated text. When any parts

When we tell our clients that we have been awarded ISO certification the usual response is ‘That must be ISO 9001?’, since this is the more well-known standard. But it is not the most specific standard for our business sector: ISO 17100 is the standard that has

We are regularly contacted by clients requiring a ‘certified translation’. To be able to help, we first need to find out what exactly they require, since there is actually no such thing as a ‘certified translation’. In our industry we only deal with sworn translations, sometimes accompanied
