I have vever heard of Sint Kliss, but maybe you mean "Sinterklaas"?
Sinterklaas is a far more popular figure in Belgium than Father Christmas. Sinterklaas refers to Sint-Nicolaas or Saint Nicholas... children can expect him to come by during the night of December 5th, every year. He brings presents, just like Father Christmas does on Christmas eve in other countries.
Sinterklaas cannot, therefore, be translated by Father Christmas.. only in certain cases... f.e. "he no longer believes in Father Christmas" would be "hij gelooft niet meer in Sinterklaas" in Dutch.
