Our History

Our History

All enterprises start out as an idea, the birth of which can be traced back to a string of events that lead up to its realization. Therefore, the history of a company is inextricably connected to the person or people that first conceived of the idea. Here we will introduce the string of events that have lead to the formation of Koert Translations and how it has been developing since!

1994First Contact

At 10 years of age, young Eric would often visit his next-door neighbors from the UK to help him out with his English to Dutch translations of video game manuals.

2003Dawn of Professional Translation

Eric’s first professional translation assignment was an English to Dutch translation of a Service Agreement for a travel agency while he was studying Japanese in Perth, Australia.

2008First Japanese & Traditional Chinese Translations

During university studies in Taiwan, Eric began accepting Chinese and Japanese to English translation assignments of business texts related to large scale build-operate-transfer (BOT) project analyses, master dissertations, and other texts for university professors and professor-mediated clients.

2009Expanding Clientele Networks

Following his new-found passion for performing translations, Eric decided to join the world’s largest community of translators, and henceforth entered into many new language service relationships, some of which endure to this day.

2017Inception of Koert Translations

After years of working as an independent contractor, the time came to move forward. The idea for Koert Translations was conceived in January 2017, after a two-week Vipassana mindfulness retreat at a Buddhist Sanctuary in Malaysia.

2018Incorporation of Koert Translations

In February of 2018, Koert Translations was officially established in Zurich, Switzerland. Soon after, in March, we incorporated Koert Translations LLP in the UK. We are now open for business!

2023New EU Project Management Base

And the story continues! On November 15th, 2023, we incorporated Koert Language Solutions OÜ in Tallinn, Estonia, to serve as our European Project Management Base for the future. We are now ready to scale, and we look forward to expanding our team!
