Mac Bay has 35 years’ experience providing specialist translations from and into Dutch, English, French, German and Spanish.


We work with small, regular teams of translators who translate exclusively into their mother tongue and who have worked in their specialist translation area.


Our network also includes reliable, experienced and professional translators for languages such as Chinese, Arabic and Italian. Contact us to find out how we can help.


All translations are revised in-house by experienced editors with relevant expertise, typically an accountant or lawyer (and sometimes both). That way we can be confident of delivering work of a consistently high standard.


Over many years, Mac Bay has built up an excellent reputation as a financial, legal and sworn translator. We can also translate your commercial communications and promotional texts. We are not just professional in our approach, we also deliver translations that strike the right note and that read well.


Thanks to their education or work experience in accountancy or law, our financial translators have an in-depth understanding of accounting standards and terminology. They also keep their knowledge up to date.



A good legal translator not only needs a thorough grasp of legal jargon but also a familiarity with different legal systems and cultures. Since our translators are native speakers who have a relevant qualification and/or who have worked in the legal profession, they have a strong legal and cultural knowledge base.



Some government agencies and other institutions require sworn (authenticated) translations of official documents, such as birth and marriage certificates, court rulings, extracts from the Chamber of Commerce, cohabitation agreements, exam certificates and divorce certificates.
