Official Language and translations
As you are staying in the Flemish part of Belgium, the official language is Dutch, meaning all official and/or general communications are to be done Dutch. Please be aware that providing a translation is not obliged for the landlord. Of course we like to help you and therefore do our best to communicate in English where possible, however keep in mind that it is not always possible.
As we are hosting people from all over the world it is not possible to communicate in everybodys language. For this reason, informal and practical information are siometimes communicated in English.
As it is not mandatory, if we provide translation in English it is only for our tenants ease.
English is not our native language and often we too need to use a translator app.
meaning, your landlord can not be held responisble for translation or misinterpretation of translations. Which is also why we refer to translate formal communications yourself.
We kindly refer to Google Translate, which is easily accessible, free and easy to use, providing translation to dozens off languages, probably even your own. Although we cannot send this info with every email you receive, the link is available on several pages of our website. https://translate.google.com/?hl=nl&sl=nl&tl=en&op=translate
