VERLOES LANGUAGES & TRAINING (VLT), founded in 1990 and located in Boutersem (30 km east of Brussels), is primarily a translation agency. We also do interpreting, language training and management courses.

Translation rates

Our translations are charged for by the line. To specify the actual price we need to know the source language, target language and an accurate estimate of the number of complete lines, or even better the document to be translated itself (preferably in electronic form). The price varies from language to language. For example, a translation from Dutch into Japanese will be more expensive than a translation from French into Dutch.

We will be delighted to send you a quotation on request.
