Les Intraduisibles: Dutch-English


In public administration 'agentschap' refers to a unit of central government that has a different financial regime from the central department, but does still resides under ministerial responsibility. Generally speaking 'agentschap' refers to a branch office (for instance a 'postagentschap' can be a small postoffice run by some local entrepreneur as part of his/her shop). In this sense it can be equivalent to 'agency'. See also 'agency' in the English-Dutch dictionary.
