We are experienced in translating complex communications clearly and ensure the utmost attention to detail. Your documents will be first translated by a specialist in the knowledge area and then proofread by a Latin American speaker.
Our group of translators bring their language skills from all over Latin America, as a result they provide you with not only grammatically perfect translations but also specifically stylized pieces, essential if you want to get ahead of the competition.
Unlike other larger translation companies, our specific focus in the Americas has allowed us to develop our understanding of the varying forms of both colloquial and technical language and will not leave you with mechanical sounding sentences that larger, less specialized, translation companies will produce.
The Spanish language is one of the fastest growing and widely varied languages on the earth. There are currently 450 million people that use Spanish as a native language, the vast majority of which inhabit the USA and South America.
Targeting Spanish to the right region, and in the right tone requires years of experience in differing Hispanic regions in order to appreciate cultural and linguistic variances. At Latin Link we have perfected our Spanish translation service so that we can provide targeted, flawless translations.
Neutral Spanish, sometimes known as Castilian Spanish, is the result of an attempt by linguistic authorities to standardise the language across borders, and determine a common vocabulary for Europe and Latin America. This is designed to ensure maximum understanding amongst speakers and readers, cutting out local variations and colloquialisms.
Latin Link uses neutral Spanish in technical and medical translations, where the language is required to be more formal and not subject to local customs. These are texts designed to be understood across the Hispanic world, and so clarity is key to the work we carry out for clients attempting to access Spanish-speaking markets.
The area we understand to be Latin America is a vast diverse landmass, from the southern tip of Argentina in Tierra del Fuego, almost in Antarctica, to the Rio Grande bordering the United States and Mexico in the north. In fact, given the massive quantity of Spanish-speakers resident in the US – most recent estimates put the number at almost 38 million, making it the second-biggest population in the world – many observers now include the US, especially states such as Texas, California and New Mexico, as part of the Latin American market.
How we translate in this region largely depends on the range and scale of the market our clients wish to access. A campaign directed across the American continent will take on a more neutral bearing, using perhaps less formal language that what we discussed above as Neutral Spanish, but avoiding where possible country-specific colloquialisms.
If a business is targeting a specific area, however, a whole different approach is necessary. This is why Latin Link tries wherever possible to use native translators, who have grown up with the language and know its quirks, customs and colloquialisms. There is a world of difference between, for example, Mexican and Argentine Spanish, and we will find the translator who can best put your message across for a local audience.
