Spanish Translation

We regularly translate all types of documents between Spanish and English, and have a large database of skilled and experienced Spanish translator personnel available for any Spanish translation project.
For clients wanting to translate English to Spanish, a common query is whether a single Spanish translation can be used for all Spanish speaking countries. In the majority of cases, the answer is yes.

While there is considerable variation in spoken Spanish from country to country and region to region, written Spanish is largely uniform throughout the Spanish-speaking world. As with English, there are vocabulary differences from country to country.

In recognition of this, a tertiary qualified Spanish translator will have been trained to produce a “neutral” English to Spanish translation. That is, the Spanish text will employ widely used vocabulary. This aims to avoid country-specific usage, and so will be understood correctly by all Spanish speakers.

Nevertheless, for certain types of texts destined for a single country only, it may be advisable to ensure the translator is from the target region, or to review an existing “neutral” Spanish translation to ensure it conforms to local language usage.

We also provide a comprehensive Spanish to English translation service. This covers all document types and is available for both business and private clients.

Spanish translations can be provided as quality-assured, budget professional and certified translations depending on the needs of the client.

Spanish Typesetting

Spanish typesetting is largely unproblematic.

Generally the only matters to consider are that a Spanish translation can often be 15-20% longer than the original English text, and that language-specific hyphenation rules must be observed.

See our separate page for information on our typesetting processes, capabilities and quality control measures relating to Spanish typesetting.

Other Major World Languages Translated

The world’s most widely spoken language, Mandarin, is also our largest language by volume. There is particular demand to translate English to Mandarin (Simplified Chinese), and to a lesser degree Traditional Chinese (Cantonese).

We have considerable demand for English to Arabic translation. Our Arabic to English translation service, particularly for personal documents, is also important.

Of the Indian languages, Hindi translation is most significant for us. Most requests are to translate English to Hindi with somewhat less work in the opposite direction.

Our French translator teams are also constantly busy with English to French translation, and to a lesser extent French to English.

We also translate into and from all other major languages of India and South East Asia. Plus we cover almost all European languages, including:
