Bootstrap: Center a container-fluid vertically

I'm trying to centre a container-fluid in it's parent container (body tag).
Here is an example of my webpage : enter image description here

The container in question is the one I've coloured in black to identify better.
There are two other divs:

- The top one which is a (nav class="navbar navbar-inverse navbar-fixed-top")
- The bottom one which is a (nav class="navbar navbar-inverse navbar-fixed-bottom")


The question is: how can I centre my container-fluid (in black) to always be in the middle of my page ? The content of this container will change dynamically and I cant it to always stay in the middle (same margin top and bottom)

Thanks guys.

EDIT : as requested, HTML and CSS :

HTML :

<body ng-controller="LanguageController as language">

<nav class="navbar navbar-inverse navbar-fixed-top" role="navigation">
<div class="container">
<!-- Brand and toggle get grouped for better mobile display -->
<div class="navbar-header">
<button type="button" class="navbar-toggle collapsed" data-toggle="collapse" data-target="#language" aria-expanded="false" aria-controls="language">
<span class="sr-only">Toggle navigation</span>
<span class="icon-bar"></span>
<span class="icon-bar"></span>
<span class="icon-bar"></span>
</button>
<a class="navbar-brand" href="#"> {{ language.lblAppName }}</a>
</div>
<div class="navbar-collapse collapse" id="language">
<div class="container vertical-center">
<label> {{ language.lblSelectLanguage }} </label>
<select ng-options="item for item in language.languages" ng-model="language.selectedLanguage" ng-change="language.changeLanguage()"></select>
<button ng-click="language.editLanguage()">{{ language.lblEditLanguage }}</button>
</div>
</div>
</div>
</nav>


<div id="corpus" class="container-fluid" ng-view="">
</div>


<nav class="navbar navbar-inverse navbar-fixed-bottom" role="navigation">
<div class="container-fluid">
<!-- Brand and toggle get grouped for better mobile display -->
<div class="navbar-header">
<button type="button" class="navbar-toggle collapsed" data-toggle="collapse" data-target="#route" aria-expanded="false" aria-controls="route">
<span class="sr-only">Toggle navigation</span>
<span class="icon-bar"></span>
<span class="icon-bar"></span>
<span class="icon-bar"></span>
</button>
<div class="navbar-brand"> {{ language.lblFooter }} </div>
</div>
<div id="route" class="navbar-collapse collapse">
<ul class="nav navbar-nav">
<li class="active"><a href="#"> {{ language.lblMainPage }} </a></li>
<li><a href="#">{{ language.lblFirstPage }}</a></li>
<li><a href="#">{{ language.lblSecondPage }}</a></li>
<li><a href="#">{{ language.lblThirdPage }}</a></li>
</ul>
</div>
</div>
</nav>


CSS :

body {
padding-top: 70px;
/* Required padding for .navbar-fixed-top. Remove if using .navbar-static- top. Change if height of navigation changes. */
}

.container {
display: table;
}

.vertical-center {
display: table-cell;
padding-top: 1%;
padding-left: 5%;
}

.vertical-center label.ng-binding{
color:grey;
}


div#corpus.container-fluid.ng-scope {
background-color:default;
}

div#mainDiv a.ng-binding {
color: black;
text-decoration: underline;
}

.top-buffer {
margin-top:2%;
}

Answer

Basically, this question has been answered before.

.vertical-center {
  min-height: 100%;
  min-height: 100vh; 
  display: flex;
  align-items: center;
}

<div class="container-fluid vertical-center">
    Vertically centered in body.....
</div>
