Abacus Translation aims to raise the standard of corporate communications in English and Dutch.
Having read thousands of press communiqués and other corporate publications during their years in journalism and translation, the Abacus partners believe that the quality and accuracy of translations often leaves something to be desired and that a good command of spoken English or Dutch is no guarantee for a similar standard in a written document. As professionals and native speakers, we aspire to give you that guarantee.
