Giving a lecture to a large audience? Heading into a meeting room as the only one unfamiliar with the language? Needing to have a confidential talk with a business partner across the language barrier?

Whatever the situation or the setting, Waran Translations has you covered with services for consecutive, simultaneous, or whispered interpreting.

Considering our primary languages and our location in Ghent, our working range mainly covers the Dutch language region—but we have also provided interpreting services in France, Italy, the UK, Poland, and Japan. We’ve also helped clients find suitable local interpreters in countries like Japan, the United States, and France.

Interpreting jobs have taken us to a diverse range of places, from NATO headquarters, London Whitehall, and European Parliament to gourmet-food events and wedding parties at sumptuous castles all the way down to a slaughterhouse, a dredging vessel on the open sea, and ringside at a K-1 final. Japanese interpreters get to go just about anywhere.

That variation means that we have to get acquainted time and time again with specific jargon which may be very technical. Being able to command that vocabulary is the difference between a good interpreter and a great one.

At Waran Translations, we tackle every assignment with thorough dedication and attention to detail.

Our past assignments include:

  • General business: negotiations between producers and dealers, between sellers and (potential) buyers, and between industry competitors
  • Technical: kaizen improvement programs, machine installations, technical meetings, and training programs for dealers
  • Political/diplomatic: meetings between political leaders, international conferences of advocacy organizations, and UN working groups
  • Legal/government: court cases, police interrogations, and inspections and audits of all kind
  • Medical/scientific: clinical studies, PMDA inspections, and visits to research institutes
  • Maritime: port visits and meetings between dredging companies
  • Sports/art/culture: art exhibitions, press conferences for soccer players, card game tournaments, and cooking workshops
