I'm looking for

Welcome to translation agency JMS Textservice. We are a professional translation agency that has been providing high-quality translations to companies and organisations, large and small, ever since our inception in 1997. And private individuals know to find us just as well. With our in-house team of translators, interpreters and project managers, we are always ready to start on your assignment.

As previously mentioned, we also have three in-house interpreters – three of them. Each of them is registered as a court interpreter in the Register of Sworn Interpreters and Translators. Are you looking for an interpreter to assist you at a civil-law notary or in court? Or an interpreter for a board meeting or workshop? Our in-house interpreters interpret between Dutch and English, but thanks to our extensive network of expert interpreters we know how to make any foreign language understandable to you or your client/partner/visitor.

JMS Textservice has been providing high-quality translations for over 27 years: from Dutch to English and vice versa, but in all other language pairs as well. JMS Textservice is also your one-stop shop for translations from and to languages including German, French, Spanish, Russian, Chinese and Arabic. Feel free to contact us to find out what we can do for you.

Translation is an art of its own

Translation agency JMS Textservice has an in-house team of translators/editors who can start on your assignment right away, individually or in teams. From that point on, we consider your deadline to be our responsibility. Our translators specialise in different disciplines and domains and that is how we ensure that your texts are translated clearly and accurately.

Looking for a translation of a legal document, such as a summons or general terms and conditions? A translation of a patent or a press release? Or a translation of your website or online store? Feel free to contact us. Our project managers will be happy to go over the options with you.

Any translation is possible at JMS Textservice.


In 1997, we began our journey as a legal translation agency. Truth be told, though, even back then that term did not quite capture the full range of our services. JMS Textservice is much more than just a legal translation agency. Sure, many of customers navigate the legal domain, and we are the trusted translation partner of the Supreme Court of the Netherlands, but we translate far more than legal documents alone. Examples include websites and blogs, but also annual reports, highly technical documents for the Directorate-General for Public Works and Water (Rijkswaterstaat) and travel content for inflight magazines. JMS Textservice really does it all. We’re a translation agency with endless possibilities.

Sometimes, there is an urgent need for translations. We understand that like no other and with our flexible methods we can pick up urgent assignments, no problem. Because we work with various translators in all language pairs, including certified translators, JMS Textservice can provide translations of documents in virtually any language.

27+ Years of experience

JMS Textservice has over 27 years of translating experience. Ever since our incorporation in 1997, we have been providing lawyers, financial service providers and international organisations with just the right translation they need. With our in-house translation team and extensive network of top external translators, we know how to get the translation right in every field.

Save time

Because we know the ins and outs of our craft, we work efficiently, saving you time in the process. We familiarise ourselves with the documents in your case file, which means that you will not lose any time explaining your arguments or the course of legal proceedings. We always do our homework, so to speak.

Yes. Always.

JMS Textservice is more than just a translation agency. We act as partners to our clients, keeping the objectives and history of the case in mind while we translate. And that does not stop once your document is returned. No matter how large, complex or urgent the translation request, our answer is always ‘yes’. Unless you ask whether something is impossible…


Our translation team

We have a fantastic in-house translation team. Whatever the situation may be, the JMS team is at your service. With their extensive legal knowledge, our translators will translate your documents perfectly. Check out our translation team on this page and find out what JMS Textservice can do for you.


Translation is a two-step process at our translation agency. Our translators start working on the translation as soon as you supply the source text. They work closely together in small teams to ensure consistency in terms of style and terminology. After the source text is translated, the translation is always reviewed and edited by a second translator. That is how we can always guarantee the quality of our translations.

Translations supplied by JMS Textservice adhere to the style, terminology and substance of your source text. The translators at our translation agency regularly take courses and follow training sessions to keep their knowledge and registrations up to date


No matter how complex your request is, the translation process is always simple. You provide us with a digital file of your source text, our translation team gets to work and a second translator conducts a final check. You receive your translation by e-mail within the agreed term. We always welcome comments, additions or questions as part of our process.


We know that legal work is not always a nine-to-five prospect. That is why we are always available: nights, weekends and holidays. Need a quotation right away? Call us and you will receive a price estimate within an hour.


Because we work efficiently, we can offer very competitive rates. We charge a fixed word rate that depends on the language pair. A fixed fee can be agreed in advance for large projects. Urgent assignments and certified translations are subject to a surcharge.

Why choose JMS Textservice as your legal translation agency?

Legal texts are often chock-full of legal jargon. This can make it difficult to read and understand a legal text, let alone to translate it into a different language. When it comes to drafting important legal documents, you want the assistance of a translator who specialises in law. Unfortunately, it can be a difficult and time-consuming process to find a translator who is both highly qualified and affordable. JMS Textservice can help you provide legally correct, fluent translations of your documents. Our linguists have in-depth knowledge of languages, legal terminology and legal cultures. Legal translation agency JMS Textservice helps you ensure that your clients and partners are happy and helps you protect your business from lawsuits and fines.
