A company with a long history.
BTC or Belgian Translation Centre was founded in Ostend by Thierry Malysse and Ann Scharre about 25 years ago. In October 1996 the independent translation agency was turned into a cooperative company with limited liability, called Belgian Translation Centre cvba.
Because of increasing assignments coming from the French-speaking part of Belgium, BTC opened a branch office in La-Roche-en-Ardenne in 2002. Barely three years later, a subsidiary was founded: the translation agency called Spanish Translation Centre in Estación de Cártama (Málaga). In 2015, Filip Vanheste joined Belgian Translation Centre as a partner. In 2016, the Spanish branch office, renamed Belgian Translation Centre España, moved to a new location in the centre of Málaga.
There are 13 permanent staff members at BTC. In addition, we can also count on more than 50 freelance translators in Belgium and abroad. All our employees have been selected according to strict criteria: they have a perfect command of their mother tongue, extensive background knowledge and several years of experience, and excel in multilingual communication.
