Technology that drives efficiency and security
We use a highly innovative “Translation Memory” productivity tool for most of our projects, enabling us to store previously translated terms and use them again if we find a match within the new document. It means you’ll never pay for the same content twice, even if it appears in a different project. It speeds up the translation process, ensures consistency and reduces your costs.

Data Breach Notifications Bill: avoid fines
When you process or share personal data with third parties, the Data Breach Notifications Bill applies. As of 1 January 2016, the Dutch Data Protection Authority (Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens) that monitors compliance, can issue fines that can run as high as € 820,000 or 10% of the annual turnover for each violation. The Responsible Party – responsible for the processing of the personal data – is fined, regardless of the location of the data breach.
