Our clients have called us "a freelancer with four brains," "the fantastic four," "the language squad," among other hilarious nicknames. Wondering how we work? We are the players, you are the coach who picks the team. Depending on your needs, you can hire just one of us, a couple, or the whole crew. Our 15 years' combined experience (we specialise in different areas) mean the expertise, attention to detail, personalised service, and flexibility of a professional freelancer. But our innovative business model means you will also enjoy the fast turn-around, efficiency, QA standards, and high-end technology of a big language agency. Pretty cool, actually. Want a bonus? We are super fun!
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.

Our content writing will make all the difference to your inbound marketing strategy. This service is available only for Spanish and English.

We have completed all kinds of projects for them, including translation, editing, proofreading, copywriting, transcription, subtitling, and more. This is what they have to say about us:
Business Development Manager - USA
"I wanted someone knowledgeable to write an article about Spanish translation. I didn't want just a professional writer that churns out superficial articles on command. That's why I asked María to write an article about the topic. Not only was her article detailed and well-researched, it was grammatically correct and perfectly idiomatic for an American website as well."
Business Development Manager - Spain
[Summarised] "I hired Crisol for the translation of some legal contracts from English to Spanish. They answered incredibly promptly and were very professional throughout the entire process. The translated documents were also of outstanding quality. I can honestly recommend them as a very professional and friendly company."

"I've worked with María: she has broad knowledge, great methodology and structure. She supports my team in a great way, she's very responsive and reliable. I highly recommend her and Crisol Translations!"

Project Manager (Data Company) - UK
"I've worked with Crisol Translation Services on a specific business project which required translation work as well as cultural consultancy work.

The team was very efficient, thorough and overall a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend working with them!"
