Agency

Communicate with the world, translate your documents!     

Art Traduct Vertalingen – ATV translation agency – was born from our passion for the French language and culture.

ATV was founded at the end of 2001 by translator and director Ellie Lormans, from the Netherlands, who is a member of the French Translators Society.

ATV is a Dutch agency which also owns a second address in France, in the Sarthe region.

ATV works with most of the languages existing in Europe. Therefore you only need to have one contact for all your translation needs, regardless of the language.
