Free Spanish Translations
We do sometimes provide Spanish translations completely free of charge.
This is also known as working Pro Bono.
You may ask why we want to do this. The answer is probably in our early humble first translation work. We found that we really loved translation and loved providing a useful service. You can read more about our origins at our About Us page.
We tend to associate the idea of Pro Bono work with solicitors who undertake work for their clients free of charge although in fact anyone can offer this service.
In our case we decide for ourselves when we feel that we want to provide our translation service for free.
This can be for charities, individuals and other entities.
We do not invite people to request this; rather we offer our free translation when we feel it is something that we want to do.
The last time we did this was for an individual.
We knew of a Spanish person who was returning to Spain because they could not find the money at all to translate their Spanish documents into English.
This person already had a job offer but could not provide the necessary translated documents and as such could not go ahead with the offer or indeed any other employment possibility.
We asked them for their documents and provided the translation pro bono.
The person could then take the job, remain in Britain and build a future.
One of the joys of translation is that it can make an important and very positive difference to a person’s life. For more information on our translations please read our FAQ.
