Spanish Translations 101

Managing a Spanish translation project can be a complicated and frustrating process, especially if you're not familiar with the language. But fear not, we are here to help. Here are some common definitions to get you started.


A Spanish translation is a process of converting a source-language document into an equivalent text in Spanish.

The English word "translation" derives from the Latin word translatio which comes from trans ("across") + latio (the past principle of ferre, which means "to carry" or "to bring across") of a text from one language to another.

The following is a short sample of some of the materials that our Spanish translators usually handle:

  • Employee Manuals
  • Business Proposals
  • Websites / HTML
  • Medical Monographs and Publications
  • Reports
  • Brochures / Flyers
  • Legal Documents
  • Graphics / Images
  • Software Localization
  • Product Specs
  • MSDS Sheets
  • Help Files / GUI
  • Instruction Manuals
  • Presentations
  • Letters
  • Marketing Materials

Localization (also known by the numeronym L10N) is the process of adapting a product, document or website to a specific market or audience so that it seems natural to that particular region.

This may require a variety of steps including:

  • Adapting graphical elements
  • Modifying design and layout
  • Adjusting content to the needs and habits of a specific audience
  • Adapting to local requirements (i.e. converting dates and units of measure)
  • Using local formats for addresses, phone numbers and dates
  • Complying with local regulations and requirements

The purpose of localization is for the product to feel as if it was created for a specific target audience (in this case, Spanish speakers).

Machine translation (MT) is a process whereby a computer program analyzes a source text and produces a target text without human intervention.

However, human translation is generally favored by companies and individuals that wish to secure more accurate translations. Because of the frequent inaccuracy of machine translations, human translation remains the most reliable, most accurate form of translation available.

Glossary management (also known as terminology management) is the practice of defining and translating terms in order to help ensure that the translation is consistent and uses the correct terminology. A translation glossary contains the project's key terminology in the source language and its approved translation in the target language.

A translation company that specializes in translating into one language. At AlfaTrad, we specialize exclusively in English to Spanish translations.

Our English to Spanish translations can be clearly understood by any Spanish speaking person in Latin America, Spain and the United States. This is because we use what is known as "neutral" or "generic" Spanish. We abide by the uses and definitions set by the Royal Academy of the Spanish Language, without incurring in idiomatic peculiarities and minimizing regional vocabulary and syntax.

However, if your need to target your translation to a specific country or regional setting, we can certainly accommodate you using our vast network of English to Spanish translators.

Computer-aided translation (or CAT) is a form of translation in which a human translator uses a computerized tool to facilitate the translation process by organizing the source material.

These tools can include:

  • Translation memories
  • Spelling and grammar checkers
  • Terminology management tools
  • Electronic dictionaries
  • Indexing and concordance tools
  • Project management software

The following section outlines the typical components of the translation workflow:

  1. We receive the original documents/files from you via e-mail, fax or delivery service.
  2. Our Project Managers analyze your documents/files and determine the scope of the project.
  3. We select the translators and subject matter experts based on your specific needs.
  4. We define the terminology and create a glossary for the project.
  5. Our hand-picked linguists translate and/or localize your documents/files.
  6. The subject matter expert reviews the draft translation for technical and/or scientific adaptation.
  7. Our Quality Assurance specialists check the overall quality, accuracy, style and consistency of the translation.
  8. We lay out and format the final translation to match the original documents/files as closely as possible.
  9. The final product is delivered to you, always on time.

We adhere to rigorous quality control procedures at every stage of the English to Spanish translation process. After each document is translated by our linguists, we carefully review it in order to achieve the highest quality standards, paying special attention to grammar, punctuation, spelling and appropriate idiomatic usage.

Our hand-picked English to Spanish translators always translate into their mother tongue, so they know how to express your thoughts and ideas in their own language. Drawing on their industry-specific expertise, they can be relied on to translate meanings rather than just words, using specific nomenclature and terminology according to your needs.

In addition, all of our translators and linguists rigidly adhere to the international standards dictated by ISO 17100 (replaces ISO 15038), ISO 11669 and ISO 2384.
