The following entries from "Dutch Legal Terminolgy in English" [Foster/Academic Press Leiden] may shed some light on the terms 'beroep' and 'bedrijf' and their translation into English:

"Company law [ondernemingsrecht] deals with the rules involved in conducting a business [bedrijf], as well as activities in clubs and teams."

"A company [onderneming] is an in dpendent business [bedrijf] or complex of businesses whose aim it is to make a profit [winst]".

"A business is a profession [beroep] within industry, trade or commerce".

Note that, in the last entry, 'beroep' is strongly related to -- or actually indirectly rendered as -- a business. Hope this helps...

neutral  writeaway: care to show a few of those relevant Googles proving that this is what the Dutch actually means?

  -> I'm sure Willemina is quite capable of googling herself, and of judging the relevancy of any hits she may obtain. If you have another opinion as to the meaning of the Dutch btw,I for one would appreciate a more direct response. I'm sure others would too.

agree  Suzanne Deveson: That would be my interpretation too. Perhaps Willemina could provide more context to check whether they are actually talking about someone working in an employer - employee relationship as opposed to someone working as a self-employed person.
