El Andar Advantage

Buying translation by price alone may leave you with mediocre results. Don’t risk your professional image. El Andar Translations delivers excellent quality at competitive prices.

As one of the most prominent bilingual Latino publications in the country, we know that even a small error can have disastrous consequences on an important translation—and what translation is not important?

How We Ensure Quality

1. We work with only the most highly qualified translators, editors and interpreters. Our team consists of carefully selected native linguists who hold advanced university degrees and have many years of translation experience.

2. We are extremely careful to employ the best talent for each assignment. We ensure that our translators are qualified to handle the subject matter. On patents, for example, we use translators with appropriate scientific and technical backgrounds.

3. During the project, a designated member of the translation team consults with the client as appropriate. This guarantees that any uncertainties of meaning are resolved quickly and accurately.

4. For even the smallest assignment, we get a second opinion. From business cards to software manuals, translators consult with subject-matter experts to ensure accuracy. Our editors consult with our translators to produce the final text.
