Q&A with Dave van den Akker: Working with Translation Agencies

During this online Q&A, Dave van den Akker will answer questions about working with translation agencies. How does a translation agency operate? What makes for a good collaboration between agencies and translators? And what can you do to stand out as a freelance translator?

Dave owns and runs two translation agencies: LinQuake and Fiducia. He also focuses on researching, applying and bringing to market new technologies in the translation industry. Dave has a background in sales and client-facing roles. He started his own business years ago after having worked at one of the largest providers of translation and interpreting services in the Netherlands for some time. In 2018, he organised the annual Dutch National Translation Conference. As a true entrepreneur, Dave looked beyond LinQuake to harness new opportunities in the market. The launch of legal and financial translation company Fiducia in 2021 gave him the chance to put his ideas for a specialist language services provider into practice. Dave has served as the chair of VViN, the Dutch association of translation agencies, for some years now.
