Hi all
I need a booklet translated from english into decent spanish.
Although I am learning spanish my skills are not up to scratch.
It is about 2 pages of A4. Where is the best place for me to get it translated?

Many Thanks

Richie

There are various on-line translation sites one of which, Babelfish, gets quite a few recommendations, would this be any good?

I was under the impression that babelfish was not much good?

You will need a proper translater, Babelfish is not all that good really.
To check it put some English text in and convert, then convert it back to Spanish, some is ok but some is miles out. ;-)

Only passing on what I've read. There are numerous free on-line translation sites just have a google. The other option is to pay somebody like Purple translations who advertise in the local magazine. They can be emailed at [email protected] or telephone (UK) 01444 443808 (Spain) 607267712.

All on-line translators have built in problems in that they do literal translations, which doesn't take into acount the context of the words. You really do need a person to do the translation for you as he/she can use words in their correct context.

If you're in Banbury why not contact one of the many language schools in Oxford. Bound to be a bilingual Spanish student there (you need a Spaniard to translate into Spanish really and vice versa).

If you are in Banbury then its a short drive to Leamington Spa. At the bottom of the Parade, opposite the gardens and above the Pizza restaurant on the corner, there is a translation company. I think they are called Comtrans or something like that. They specialise in legal translations etc.

If thats no good for you I have a friend in Redditch who speaks perfect Spanish / English. I could ask her for you, but to be fair she'll probably want some money for it. Let me know
