Colonised by the Spanish in the 16th Century, Colombia was known as the Republic of New Granada until 1861 and eventually became the Republic of Colombia in 1886. Colombian Spanish differs considerably from Peninsular Spanish. The term is used to refer to the standard dialect spoken in the capital, Bogota, and doesn’t account for the 68 dialects spoken elsewhere, all of which have considerable variations. Professional bodies like medical associations, regional and local authorities, publishers, and coffee companies all depend on us to create word-perfect Colombian Spanish written content – including but not limited to: e-learning tools, podcasts, studies, websites and apps, news articles and opinion pieces, marketing materials, legal contracts, speeches, and trade statistics. We are highly qualified and practically experienced subject and language experts who work with local and international clients such as NHS, The Economist, and American Express, delivering translated materials quickly and efficiently in over 200 languages.

The fourth-largest country on the continent of South America, the Republic of Colombia is arguably the most culturally and linguistically diverse sovereign state in the world. Performing Colombian Spanish translations takes more than simple technical skill: it requires the attention to detail and linguistic sensitivity that only comes from living and working in Colombia itself. Our translators are mother-tongue speakers with in-depth knowledge and first-hand experience. They speak and translate written content like Colombians because they are Colombians or have spent a significant amount of time living and working there. Colombians are intensely proud of their language and its respective dialects so delivering flawless translations is a mark of respect for a long tradition of linguistic development that began with the Independence of Colombia in the 19th century. The unique characteristics of Colombian Spanish can completely alter the meaning of a single sentence or entire document, potentially causing confusion or offence. We know that the formal pronoun usted is used in Bogota in virtually all situations, whereas the informal tu is common everywhere else within the country. We also have an innate understanding of the grammatical peculiarities of Colombian Spanish: for example the fact that adjectives and prepositions run close together and are often expressed in abbreviations.
Only a translator with practical skills and field-specific qualifications can faithfully deliver Colombian Spanish translations such as a government report on renewable energy sources or a research paper on stem cell therapy. Each specialised translation we deliver is produced by an individual or team with the knowledge, qualifications and experience needed to deliver linguistically flawless, culturally appropriate, and terminologically correct results. Plus our use of pioneering translation memory software, which pinpoints and saves repeated words and phrases in a lexicon, enables us to ensure that our clients are never charged for the same translation twice. Your lexicon grows as we perform further translations, and the cost of your translations diminishes.
