On 1 October 2021, the new UT tender for translations came into effect with the following three translation partners: Taalcentrum-VU, Metamorfose Translations and Translavic Translations. We are happy to continue our co-operation with Taalcentrum-VU and are confident that our two new translation partners will meet your expectations.
Do you need a translation of any text, academic or non-academic? Our translation partners will be glad to help! We have made solid agreements on quality, rates, and customer service. Below you can find more information on our partners and their rates.
We have agreed on fixed rates with our partners, so you will know what to expect and there is no need for complex quotation procedures. Once you have sent a translation partner a request for a translation with an OFI number to which the job can be billed, they will get started straight away.
Three partners, three different approaches
Each partner has their own field of expertise, approach and pricing strategy. Should you be unfamiliar with any of them, we recommend you try out every partner to see which one suits your needs and expectations best. That being said, they all meet the criteria set by UT regarding quality, translating various kinds of texts, and using UT's English style guide and UT's list of educational terms.

Questions or complaints?
If you have questions about a translation assignment, please contact the translation office concerned. Every translation partner has a contact person for the University of Twente.
In case you are not happy with a translation, despite providing a clear source text and instructions, we kindly ask you to contact the translation office yourself first, since you can explain most accurately why you are not satisfied with a translation.
However, if you are unhappy with how your complaint is being handled, if it takes too long to process, or if you simply cannot reach an agreement with the translation office, please contact the UT Language Centre contract co-ordinator:
