Values

We thought we were just translating. In reality, we were learning.

Experience. We are the longest-serving translation and interpreting firm in Spain. We have a flawless knowledge of the culture of the languages we work in, which allows us to be totally faithful to our clients’ wishes.

Accuracy. . Translation is not a matter of words only: it is a matter of making intelligible a whole culture.” Anthony Burgess. To translate is to understand a message and convey it to another person from another culture in the most effective way. We offer our clients the utmost security so that they can trust the accuracy of our translations and the unfailing punctuality of our deliveries. Our Quality Control Department is in charge of revising all translations, in order to guarantee the use of appropriate terminology, to eliminate any typographical errors and to give coherence to the text as a whole. 

Commitment. Our high level of motivation and enthusiasm mean that we are extremely committed, both to our own team and to the projects in which we are involved.

Confidentiality. Our clients can rely on our professionalism when it comes to handling information that they consider confidential. We consider ourselves part of the team when we start a new project.

Communication. We like to maintain a close relationship with our clients, which is why we offer a personalised follow-up of the projects through the involvement of our entire team.
