Quick tip: Let your browser translate for you

Some modern browsers, like Google Chrome, will automatically offer to translate a website for you if it’s not in your language(s). You can use this to browse Dutch websites. Beware however, that sometimes names are accidentally translated as well. Mr. Koning could be represented as Mr. King, and a place name like Houten as Wooden.
