In the search results my client's website first sub-listing is not correctly displayed like the titles of other pages, despite using the same structure method in making the pages.

Why does this occur and how could I solve it?

I assume you're referring to http://www.andreexpress.be/diensten/ramenwasser/.

Was the page's <title> tag ever "ramen en vitrines"?

If you changed the title after Google indexed the page, Google is probably using a cached version of the page. Give them time to re-index the page and the title will be updated accordingly.

Also could have been set in <meta>, but it's not there currently. – phoops Apr 16 '14 at 22:02
Thanks, I'll take a look at it and let you know... – brobken Apr 16 '14 at 22:10
It could also be from the anchor text of links to that page. – DisgruntledGoat Apr 17 '14 at 9:12
That was my first thought too... But why would Google use that as page title instead of the one I have given up? – brobken Apr 17 '14 at 16:38
