National Office for Annual Vacations

Ik ken iemand die er werkt en heb de persoon gecontacteerd. Er bestaat wel een officiële benaming in het Nederlands, het Frans en het Duits (de 3 officiële talen van België), doch voor het Engels is dit niet zo omdat het geen officiële taal is in België.

Zelf gebruiken ze steeds "National Office for Annual Vacations", dus misschien is het de beste oplossing om die benaming over te nemen...
