Let’s talk about us

Colingua is a translation and conference interpretation agency based in Brussels, Liège (Wallonia) and Lanaken (Flanders). Our conference interpreters are active in Belgium, France, Luxembourg and all over Europe.

Our translators work for Belgian clients with a global outlook and international clients visiting Belgium or the European institutions. Our translation agency is special because it is run entirely by industry professionals. You will always be in touch with a translator or an interpreter.

Colingua proposes two types of services: written translations (websites, leaflets, contracts, in various sectors like festivals, sports … ) and simultaneous interpreting services (sometimes called simultaneous translation), with or without interpreting booths.

Since 2020, we have been proposing several online interpreting solutions, on Zoom or other platforms. We also have a hub (or studios) in Brussels with interpretation booths, green screens and the necessary technical support to host our clients in compliance with the strictest sanitary regulations.

    Préhistomuseum

    “The Prehistomuseum, formerly named the “Préhistosite de Ramioul”, opened its doors in February 2016 after 3 years of refurbishment. Our 30-hectare museum, devoted to Prehistoric times, boasts no less then 12 exhibitions that we have decided to display in four languages (French, Dutch, German and English). In the months prior to the opening, Colingua was a valuable ally in overcoming the mountain of work that required completion! The quality of their follow-up and anticipation helped us respect the deadlines and offer our visitors translations that are always very accurate, covering a wide range of different subjects. Our collaboration continues today – but at a gentler pace, fortunately! – and in all likelihood it will last for many years more.”

Our team can set up a technical solution with booths for interpreters, microphones and loudspeakers, or a simple portable kit if you need to visit a factory or working site, or if you are holding a business meeting with just a few people.

    The interpretation booths would not work without AV technicians. They usually sit behind their mixing tables and manage sound quality in real time during your event.
