which will boost the progress of your project


Explanation:
Hoi,

'ten goede komen' wordt letterlijk vertaald:
a change for the better
your project will benefit by it
it will be beneficial to your project

Vrijer vertaald en met in acht name van de context zou ik het door 'to boost' vertalen (een extra elan aan iets geven)

Hoop dat je ermee geholpen bent

groetjes
