Independent since 2002 

The Square Mile was founded in 2002 by Richard Brame, who saw a need for a professional, pure-play in-company language provider in the Netherlands. Richard is still director and the company provides stability and growth in a market where many of the established names have experienced financial difficulties in recent years.  

Richard’s philosophy? Recruit the best people, value them and let them do their work.
