About us

Ardilla Translations was conceived and born in the academic world, and our team’s top qualifications reflect these origins. Ardilla’s team is experienced in translating and editing a wide variety of topics including the arts, humanities, social sciences, business, law, sports, and spirituality.

Ardilla’s mission is to communicate ideas, needs, and services across linguistic barriers between Spanish and English. In order to create quality translations, the translator must do much more than just speak two languages, she or he must also understand culture and nuance. Ardilla’s team is composed of people who have lived and studied in various Spanish and English speaking contexts.

At Ardilla Translations, we approach each project with utmost professionality. Our translators pay special attention to the details and nuances of language. Additionally, each project is assigned two translators/editors to ensure maximum quality.

We use SDL Trados software. This allows Ardilla to maintain databases of communication both with clients and in our team.
