Bear to Bull

Your partner in financial communication

Bear to Bull is a translation agency specialising in the financial sector. We pride ourselves on offering excellent service in a B2B context.

In much the same way as the stock exchange can transition from a ‘bear market’ (a pessimistic, falling market) towards a ‘bull market’ (optimistic, rising market), we strive to lift your quarterly reports, product brochures and the likes to a higher level.

At Bear to Bull we aim for an excellent relationship with our clients which transcends “just business”. How may we help you today?

Dries Herremans

Translator & business manager

Having obtained his degree in Business Translation at Ghent College, Dries worked in banking for several years, during which he acquired an in-depth understanding of the financial world.

As the person in charge of internal communication for the Personal Banking segment at ING Belgium, Dries gained a wealth of experience regarding the creation and translation of financial texts and communications. At the same time he discovered the power of a message which has been carefully tailored to its target audience.

It is due to this experience, paired with his passion for language, that Dries can help you as a company to communicate clearly with your professional partners and clients today.

What can we do for you?


All translations are carried out by native speakers with degree-level qualifications and several years of practical experience.

Every text is subsequently revised by a second translator, guaranteeing the highest quality results!

We translate from French & English into Dutch, but we can offer other language combinations as well.


Once in a while you might receive a text or translation where the quality is called into question.

Bear to Bull will be happy to accept the challenge of proofreading and, if required, revising this text in order to ensure a first-rate end product.

We proofread texts who were drafted in or translated to Dutch, but we can offer proofreading in other languages as well.

High quality service

The price and lead time of the project will be agreed in advance.

You will be in personal contact with the translator who will deliver a high quality result within the agreed timeframe.

Our network

Do you have certain needs regarding translation or proofreading which are not covered by our language combinations or sector?

We can count on an extensive network of competent and trustworthy colleagues who ensure the same level of quality.

Bear to Bull then checks the end product in order to guarantee the quality level which we are known for.
