at palabras mayores we translate only what we are best at

It is rather difficult to be proficient in every translation area. Translating a user guide, a birth certificate, a novel, an article for a newspaper or an article of law requires very different approaches. At palabras mayores we prefer to stick to the fields we are accredited for, or those in which we have proven experience. Even though we might accept different kinds of assignments, we focus on the following areas:

  • literary translation [Dutch⇒ Spanish]: accredited by the Dutch Foundation for Literature (Letterenfonds).
