When you come into contact with government services in Flanders, you are expected to speak Dutch. But for you, that may not actually be a matter of course. If you feel that you cannot express yourself sufficiently in Dutch to handle administrative matters, it is time to call on a sworn interpreter.
A few examples:
- Driving test: increase your chances of passing by using a sworn interpreter during the practical and/or theoretical driving test (SBAT).
- Wedding: get assistance from a sworn interpreter when you get married at the Registry Office of your municipality.
- Court/lawyer: if you wish to file a request before the court and appear as a claimant, or if you would like to be able to talk to your lawyer in your native language.
