ElaN Languages acquires B&D training company

28 November 2019
ElaN Languages has acquired B&D based Haasrode and is thus expanding its training offer significantly. B&D is a company that provides skills training.


“We have been providing translation, language training, and interpreting services to companies both nationally and internationally for over thirty years,” says Robrecht Belien, CEO of ElaN Languages. “In addition, ElaN provides training courses to help develop the talents of employees in companies.”

Wider range

Leadership, customer-oriented communication, sales discussions, copywriting, etc. These are just a few of the skills training courses on offer at ElaN Languages right now. From stress management to feedback and conflict mediation: thanks to the acquisition of B&D, ElaN Languages now offers an even wider range of training courses.


B&D has an impressive portfolio, with clients such as Belfius, Fluxys, and Delhaize. Robrecht Belien adds, “The expertise is there and we want to include it in our services. Their practice-oriented training approach also dovetails perfectly with ours.” B&D’s three permanent employees and forty coaches will join the ElaN team.
