Its original name was the Association of Translation Agencies (ATA). But a Dutch organisation deserves a Dutch name. And there is also another ATA in the world of translation – the American Translators Association.

So since 2012, we have been called VViN: Vereniging van Tolk- en Vertaalbureaus in Nederland.

Many translation companies as well as interpreting companies of all sizes have since joined VViN. With effect from 2021, all members of VViN are ISO-certified.

VViN was also one of the parties behind the European Union of Associations of Translation Companies (EUATC), the organisation representing all organisations in this industry in Europe. VViN is still a very active and influential member of this European umbrella organisation.
