BQTA - Belgian Quality Translation Association – is the Belgian association of translation companies. We are a non-profit making organisation that was founded in 1995 in order to:


"Translation cannot be dissociated from the notion of progress, some even maintain that a society can be measured by the translation it accepts"

Jean-Francois Joly





European Language Industry Survey 2018

The survey received almost 1300 responses, for which we wish to thank all participants!

The results will be available end of March. They will be presented at the EUATC conference in Madrid on April 20th.
