Nuffic is the expertise and service centre for internationalisation in Dutch education. From primary and secondary education to vocational training and higher education and research. It is Nuffic’s ambition to help ensure that all pupils and students have the opportunity to develop a strong basis in internationalisation by 2020. Internationalisation belongs at the very core of education, and it is never too early for schools to begin.
Nuffic’s efforts feed into the much larger ambition of the Netherlands being among the world’s leaders in education and research, and to the country’s ambitions for building knowledge and skills in developing countries. For further details about Nuffic, visit www.nuffic.nl.
Given the distinctly international context within Nuffic operates, the contacts with many of its partners are in English. In concrete terms this means that a considerable ammount of Nuffic-related information hasto be translated into English. In addition, many Nuffic texts are written by people who are not themselves native speakers of English. These texts are generally edited by Metamorfose geredigeerd.
Nuffic has purchased translation and editing services from Metamorfose since 2007, mostly in English but also in French or Spanish, for example. In early 2010 Metamorfose signed a framework agreement with Nuffic covering all translation and editing services.
