Our story

HHCE is a modern, specialist global communications company, whose personal approach and commitment keep major customers coming back for more, year after year. We help companies all over the world to conquer old and new markets, while never losing sight of the customer’s need.

Elsbeth Rooker, Senior Partner at HHCE: It’s always tricky to explain who we are. At our company, we prefer to focus on our customers, and not so much on ourselves. If I ask my colleagues what HHCE stands for, they all say that we are committed, professional, flexible, solution-driven experts, and that we also have a relaxed working environment. The latter is certainly important too!

To me, the most important thing is taking customers seriously and really understanding their position. What can I offer them support with and what do they need in order to achieve their goals? Serving our customers is second nature to our company. Translation is serious and should only be done by professionals who never lose sight of the customer’s needs. It really makes my day when customers tell me that their international partners are pleasantly surprised by the excellent quality of their texts. That’s what HHCE is all about!

years’ experience

Management team

Studying Italian in Berlin and translation in Amsterdam (where I graduated with honours) set me up perfectly for my work at HHCE. Translation broadens intercultural horizons and I love being a part of that.

Pia Hoffmann Translator/Project Manager

Working as an Account Manager at HHCE lets me combine my love of languages with my British drive to fulfil the customer's every wish. It's a challenge I relish every single day!

Alison Copeland Account Manager

Linguist, technical expert and owner. Providing our customers with technical, as well as linguistic, support is crucial. I always think “there must be an easier way” and won't stop until I've come up with a customised solution.

Henk Hendriks Senior Partner

Finding a good translator is a real challenge, but it makes my day to see the revisers, project managers and customers happy.

Lucina Hoepel Resources Manager

I combine my love of languages, enthusiasm and Dutch no-nonsense mentality to strike the perfect balance between the customer and the translator. That's what it's all about for me.

Judith Linssen Project Manager

Egyptologist, owner and copywriter, with 25 years’ experience in the language industry. For us, the customer is the focal point of all communications. That means empathy, understanding and constant reflection.
