If there’s one language that’s increasingly in demand, it’s Spanish. As the official language in 20 countries, it has more than 450 million speakers worldwide. With distinct variants and dialects, it’s even more crucial to choose the right words. Professional Spanish translation services with native translators bridge the gap to truly speak to your intended audience.


Spanish: A language that exudes timeless elegance

Spanish has a lot of beauty and history. This expressive Romance language has evolved over the centuries, resulting in a number of regional varieties and rich vocabulary. One word in English can have several translations with specific meanings and contexts. In business, numerous industries widely use Spanish, especially the financial, retail, education, legal, and arts sectors.


Las mejores traducciones al español

Many markets are in need of quality Spanish translation services – including the United States. With 22% more Spanish speakers than Spain and 12% more than Colombia, the United States is a key Spanish-speaking market. Even if they are bilingual, consumers would rather shop in their native language. To be effective, the readers’ entire experience must be seamless. A good translation is seamless and effectively communicates with the intended readers, disguising its origin from a different language. You achieve this by ensuring the translation flows naturally and the target audience easily understands it. Our Spanish translators expertly convey the original material’s style and tone to your chosen market.

Translating Spanish to English (and the other way around)

Many agree that Spanish is one of the easiest languages for English speakers to learn. However, high proficiency in Spanish doesn’t necessarily make translation a walk in the park, since there is already a huge difference between European Spanish and Latin American Spanish.

Historical and cultural changes over the centuries have made the language evolve significantly across Spanish-speaking regions. This has resulted in different variations with their own grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation (such as ‘seseo’ in Latin America and parts of Spain, where the letters C and Z are pronounced as ‘s’ rather than ‘th’). The same words can have very different meanings depending on where you are. Our community of professional Spanish translators are familiar with the local lexicon, adapting your text into perfect English.

When translating from English into Spanish, you should anticipate 20–25% text expansion, or even more if an abbreviation doesn’t exist in the target language. This can be particularly tricky when working with character limits (e.g., buttons on apps on websites or subtitles). Attached’s native translators and experts can overcome these challenges to match the original layout or audio.

We can also arrange the required services between Spanish and other languages, such as French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Russian.

Why choose a translation agency for Spanish?

Although speakers from different countries can understand each other, there is no ‘universal’ or ‘neutral’ Spanish. Customers want to feel fully understood and valued if you want their trust. While humour can delight audiences in certain cultures, it could fall flat in others. Partnering with a translation agency allows your materials to be localized to the exact countries you’re targeting.

When it comes to Spanish, how you address your customers is perhaps one of the most important things to consider. A key grammatical difference across Spanish variants is the formal and informal forms of ‘you’ and their verb conjugations. In Spain, ‘tú’ and ‘vosotros’ are the informal singular and plural pronouns. The formal versions ‘usted’ and ‘ustedes’ are used in less formal settings in Latin America, where ‘vosotros’ has fallen out of use. In some countries like Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay, ‘vos’ replaces ‘tú’. Using the wrong pronoun can create distance between you and your customers.

For your texts to achieve the intended goal and appeal to your new readers, you’ll need native translators who know all about the target culture. Our consultants step in before translation begins to discuss your central message, so your brand identity is consistent yet culturally relevant.

Prices for Spanish translation services vary based on the nature of the document, file format, specialism, deadline, and other project requirements. As we work with technology to save you time and money, we’ll need an editable file to maintain the formatting in the translated materials. We can convert files (e.g., PDF to Word), but this will increase the turnaround time and cost.
Yes – we can give you an estimate if you tell us as much as possible about the final file. Contact a member of the team about the subject area, number of pages and language combination.
When we receive your request, we’ll consider several factors. Turnaround times depend on the number of words to translate, the format, content, reference materials, etc. We’ll let you know how long it will take to translate your documents.
Your materials and data are safe with us and will only be used to carry out the agreed services.
