About

Welcome to Cross Border Translation!

Who We Are

We are a Netherlands-based translation agency founded by Joel van Valkenhoef,

with branches in the Netherlands, Vietnam, and Argentina.

Our Approach

At CBT we like to keep things simple, through a small-scale approach and a focus on our

core languages and specializations. We're continually developing and don't mind expanding, as long as it's at a natural pace, and never at the expense of the quality or service we provide.

Our Core Languages

Dutch, English, German, French, Chinese, Vietnamese, Spanish, and Portuguese.

We handle all of these languages fully or partially in-house. This ensures the highest quality

at competitive prices, while always keeping the final quality assurance phase

securely in the hands of our in-house staff.​

Our Other Specializations: Multilingual, Audiovisual, and DTP Translations

Our clients keep coming back to us with increasingly complex translation requests. From the most exotic languages to supplementary services such as desktop publishing (DTP), subtitling, and voice overs, our customers' satisfaction is continually growing, as is the feeling that there is no translation job we can't handle at a high level of satisfaction.
