About us

For a translator to be able to tackle financial and legal documents, they must have a solid understanding of the subject matter. The founders of Fiducia saw a gap in the market for a specialist translation services provider that focuses exclusively on these realms, working only with translators who know all the ins and outs because they’ve worked in these sectors for years and/or have received the proper training.

In February 2022, Fiducia merged with legal translation agency Hendriks & James. Fiducia counts leading international law firms and the European Court of Justice among its clients. Translations are regularly provided of prominent cases in a variety of areas of law. All translations are worked on by a combination of translators from the source and target languages and proofreaders with the right expertise.

At translation company Fiducia, we combine our knowledge of the financial and legal field with linguistic skills and state-of-the-art technology. Other features of our service provision are staff continuity, client focus, availability and quick response times.
