Woo Your Spanish-Speaking Audience

AS FEATURED IN

Maria Scheibengraf on Nimdzi

Neither a one-person business nor an agency.
We are the best of both worlds.

You need your copy and documents in Spanish. So far, so good. But a big translation agency charges too much and cares too little: you are just another number for them and you have no control over their processes!

Crisol Translation Services was founded in 2016 as a boutique team of four freelance Spanish translators bound by a common cause: changing the language industry from the inside out. We’ve never liked that our industry seems to be ruled solely by the profit motive, which can very often undermine product quality as well as collaborative efforts among industry players of differing power and privilege. It’s all become about making money fast, while linguistic quality and business ethics have taken a rear seat.

Where is the genuine love for language and for bridging cultural gaps? Where is the passion for surgically unpicking the veins of translation buyers’ texts to endow them with new life in the target language? Where is business ethics?

Our mission is to prove that being a boutique team is not an obstacle for serving businesses of all sizes as well as individual clients because we’re fuelled by what lured us to our profession from the get-go: an unfathomable passion for communication. What’s more: being small is an advantage. For years now, we’ve been handling both large-scale and small projects efficiently, with impeccable quality, while remaining ethical and forming fruitful partnerships with other freelancers.

We live and breathe Spanish. It runs in our veins like fire through a dry field. We understand better than anyone that the image you project is a result of your words: let us take care of them for you. We’ll help you communicate your ideas and values in an assertive, persuasive, and effective manner. And you’ll become living testimony that small businesses can outperform larger ones in terms of care for detail, linguistic quality, personalisation, customer service, and ethical practices.

Take a look below at the types of services we offer and what they involve. We’ll get it all sorted for you in no time, with great attention to detail, for an affordable price. And we’ll go the extra mile to make sure you get the best, most personalised customer service in the market.

With us, you will get outstanding, accurate translations of all kinds of texts. Our clients include mid-sized and large companies across the globe. We work into Spanish—from English, French, Italian, Portuguese, and German—. Are you looking for other language combinations? We can recommend some amazing colleagues!

The image you project, which is directly attributed to your product or service, is a result of your words. We ensure that you have the most accurate, consistent, reliable, and grammatically correct text possible. It will always be a native speaker who performs the final QA checks, so you can rest assured that your texts will always sound natural and appealing.

If you need quick and accurate transcription services designed for a wide range of audio or video file formats, you are in the right place. Choose between verbatim transcription, intelligent verbatim transcription, or edited transcription. We charge per minute of audio, get in touch for a free quote.

We can help your company provide engaging, user-oriented online content for clients and prospects worldwide; improve search engine rankings; and convert traffic into leads and customers. Our content writing will make all the difference to your inbound marketing strategy. This service is available only for Spanish and English.

Our favourite! We will rebuild your creative texts by focusing on their intended impact. You will be able to communicate your ideas in other languages while maintaining the essence and emotional effect of the message, adjusting it to the target audience, and tweaking any cultural references. The final product is a culturally-appropriate piece that stays true to the original intent, style, and tone while resonating locally. A proper work of art!

Frequently Asked Questions

It’s in the beautiful area of Kingston-Upon-Thames (KT1).

There are a number of ways to go about charging for translation services: per page, per word, per line, per character, per thousand words, or, in some cases, per hour. Some translators even offer a flat fee for the whole project. We will need you to get in touch for a personalised quote, as many factors need to be weighed in (such as language combination, turn-around time, file format, etc.). For you to have a rough idea, our hourly rate is between £50 and £70, our per-page rate is approximately £60, and our per-word rate fluctuates in the range of £0.12 to £0.15. Read more about pricing structures here.

We work mainly into Spanish (both Latin American and European) and into English (both American and British). However, we also support Italian, French, German, and Portuguese (both Brazilian and European). If you need any other language combinations, do get in touch as we might be able to refer you to a qualified professional who can look after you.

Yes, we do. While we don’t provide DTP services, we work with specialist software that allows us to generate the translated file in the same format as the original. Please contact us to evaluate your particular files.

Every file format that does not allow the editing of its content, such as a scanned PDF or a picture, will result in a higher price. This is because we need to have both the original text and the translated text open at the same time and swap between the two, which is time-consuming in comparison to editable files. However, if your PDF can be converted back to a Word document and edited, the price won’t be higher.

Yes, they usually are. The longer you can allow for us to deliver your translation, the higher the discount we are able to offer.

You can pay by bank transfer (we have accounts in Argentina, in Spain, and in the UK) or via PayPal.

For first-time clients, we request a 50% advance payment and the rest will be due upon delivery of the translated file. If you need some flexibility around this, we are happy to consider your particular circumstances and offer you a customised quote that will work for all of us.

It means that a professional translator will need to issue a Certificate of Accuracy at the end of the translated document attesting to the fact that the translation is faithful to the original. We are members of the Chartered Institute of Linguists (UK) and the American Translators’ Association (USA), so we have the authority to certify translations.

We would need to see the text, but if some passages are identical throughout the document, we can generally agree on a discount.

We know this is hard to grasp, so here is a blog post where we explain it in simple terms.
