Mission

Wageningen in’to Languages opens up new worlds to ambitious professionals, researchers and organisations. We help them achieve their goals by enabling them to excel in languages and communication.

Vision

Globalisation is rapidly changing the world around us. Organisations, professionals and academics increasingly operate on a global scale. However, language proficiency, communication skills and intercultural awareness are equally important on a national scale. The area in which these success factors overlap is precisely where Wageningen in’to Languages expertise is found and where we want to reinforce our leading position in the years to come.

Partners

Wageningen in'to Languages and Radboud in'to Languages, Radboud University Nijmegen's and Wageningen University & Research’s language centres, have worked closely since 2011. These centres continue to provide their clients with a wider and better range of integrated language learning and translation services whilst maintaining their individual identity and personal relationships with their clients. This unique collaboration serves to strengthen and raise our academic and internationally-oriented profile and ensures that we are better placed to invest in quality improvement and innovation.
