English to Catalan Translation Projects
We assist organizations with documentation or marketing material (e.g. brochures, manuals, website content, PowerPoint presentations, product labeling, etc.) that are written in Catalan and require accurate translation into English.
Of course, in addition to English to Catalan and Catalan to English translation assignments, we can also assist you with the translation of the world's most popular languages to and from Catalan: Arabic ↔ Catalan; Spanish ↔ Catalan; French ↔ Catalan; German ↔Catalan; Italian ↔ Catalan; Portuguese ↔ Catalan; Russian ↔ Catalan; Japanese ↔ Catalan; Chinese ↔ Catalan; Hindi ↔ Catalan; to name but the most popular... We can source translation expertise for virtually any language pair.
Catalan Language Style
Our translators, editors and proofreaders render well-written and clearly understandable texts. We place a high value on rendering a finished product that is faithful to the language style of the original text.
Catalan to English Translation Projects
We assist businesses in finding the best available Catalan to English language translation resources – including experienced Catalan language translators (native-speaking Catalan if appropriate or required).
In our experience, a Catalan language native-speaker may not necessarily be the right translator for the job. (See: Common myths and misconceptions about translation.) Though a native-speaker may be preferable for certain translation assignments, having Catalan as a native language may not 'translate into' Catalan language expertise (pun intended). An experienced linguist with strong Catalan and English language translation credentials, in-depth experience and professional credentials, regardless of native language, may often prove to be a better choice.
Identifying and securing the services of the appropriate Catalan language resources is what we do! (Refer to our Catalan translation assignment process for information on our Catalan translation project management process).
In a nutshell, we use professional translators who have a solid mastery of the Catalan language (grammar, spelling, cultural nuances) and a solid understanding of the subject matter.
Once we are confident that the appropriate freelance resources have been identified and certain that we can honour the project deadline, we submit a quote for the translation assignment.
If we cannot secure the appropriate resources, we will do our best to refer you to Catalan translation sources of information that we have confidence in.

Catalan is a Romance language, the national language of Andorra, and a co-official language in the Spanish autonomous communities of the Balearic Islands, Catalonia and Valencia – where it is known as Valencian – and in the city of Alghero in the Italian island of Sardinia. It is also spoken, although with no official recognition, in the autonomous communities of Aragon (in La Franja) and Murcia (in El Carxe) in Spain, and in the historic Roussillon region of southern France, roughly equivalent to the current département of the Pyrénées-Orientales (Northern Catalonia).
