Story and mission

Story and mission

Learn more about what drives our work at Crisol Translation Services

Driven by ethics

We started Crisol Translation Services as a way to transform the translation industry by offering a fairer, more ethical alternative to the status quo.
.
In an industry where bottom-feeding translation agencies exploit their freelancers to make money fast, and where linguistic quality is often secondary to profit, we believe that there’s a better way to do business.
.
As a social enterprise, we are committed to using our business as a force for good. Our goal is to create a more equitable translation industry driven by fairness, ethics, and social responsibility.
.
We believe that translators are experts who deserve to be respected and fairly compensated for their work. Are the rates we charge our clients higher than the industry average? Yes. Because that’s what allows us to pay our translators what they’re worth and to attract the best talent – which, in turn, benefits our clients.
.
We hope that you will join us in our mission!

An English to Spanish translator with four brains

Crisol Translation Services was founded in 2016 as a boutique team of four freelance Spanish translators bound by a common cause: building bridges with the Spanish-speaking world without losing sight of fundamental ethical commitments.
.
We work both with European Spanish and Latin American Spanish, and have been a team for so long that we complement each other perfectly. Our clients have told us time and time again that they love how cohesive and supportive of each other we are. You will feel you are dealing with one super-translator!

Serving SaaS businesses since 2016

Our speciality are SaaS, Fintech, and AI products. They trust us with their Spanish localisation needs as well as cultural consultancy, keyword research, and UX/UI services.

With a full head of hair since birth, Alex arrived at Maria’s home at the start of the pandemic with a mission to make everyone happier. He likes hugging stressed out people so they will kiss him on the head, and he'll always share his food with you. OK, maybe not always, but sometimes... if you give it back promptly. Alex speaks Spanglish, with phrases like 'apa veie' (apple verde, green apple) or 'api bú' (lápiz blue, blue pencil). While his speech is not fully developed, he can sing full songs and knows the steps for all of them.

Alex Director of Hugs - Meet the Team - About Us

Alex

DIRECTOR OF HUGS

With a full head of hair since birth, Alex arrived at Maria’s home at the start of the pandemic with a mission to make everyone happier. He likes hugging stressed out people so they will kiss him on the head, smell his baby scent, and feel a lot better. He has never failed at this task so far, and although we think he’s a natural, he says he’s learned all the tricks from Faustino. Alex can say ‘ba-ba’, ‘ma-ma’, ‘pa-pa’, and ‘ca-ca’, but we are not too sure what language that is.

Celina
