About us

Thank you for your interest in our Dutch specialist translation agency for the arts and culture sector.

Blauvelt Cultuurvertalingen has a solid reputation in this sector; a sector in which wording and nuances demand the utmost from a translator’s creative abilities. We master the art of translation.

Mission of Blauvelt Cultuurvertalingen

We support your communication by seamlessly bridging all language barriers, so that you can fully concentrate on your core business of developing your organisation with a view to serving every international target audience.

We do this by providing you with dedicated translation services. These are performed by highly qualified translators who are native speakers of the language into which they translate and with experience and knowledge of the jargon specific to the creative sector. We are your specialists in cultural marketing!

Working with us gives you the feeling of having your very own in-house translation department – with at least the same level of expertise, commitment and professionalism – but at a lower cost and with greater flexibility.

We translate creative texts for your catalogues, programme booklets, flyers, reviews, admission tickets, posters, playlists, websites, correspondence, event newspapers, surveys, newsletters, apps, folders, scripts, invitations, corporate videos, promotional materials, press releases, magazines, subtitles, grant applications and annual reports.

Our professional translators are at home in the arts and culture sector and translate exclusively into their native language. They use their creative abilities to translate all the nuances as correctly as possible, while retaining the tone of voice of your original text. Blauvelt selects only the best translators who are dedicated to their profession and passionate about the arts and culture.

Our highly qualified translators provide the perfect translation for every exhibition, art fair, concert, festival or other artistic or cultural event or performance. Our translators are also your audience, after all!

Our slogan is ‘get it right the first time’. Therefore, we do not have a separate customer service department. Quality is embedded into our DNA and is guaranteed in the operational process.
