Spanish has been the official national language of Peru since the first half of the 20th Century. Peruvians speak four dialects of the language: Equatorial, Andean, Riverside, and Amazonic Spanish. Each has its own set of influences and characteristics, and differs considerably from the Spanish written and spoken in other parts of South America. Our team is made up of native Peruvian Spanish speakers and subject experts working on written content ranging from complex technical equipment manuals and quality control guidance documents to website localisation, branding, and marketing materials. Oxford University, Timberland, and The Guardian, are just some of the many public- and private-sector companies and organisations with which we work. Our speed, expertise, flexibility, local knowledge, and proficiency in 200+ languages enable us to deliver accurate and impactful Peruvian Spanish translations to a vast client base in different time zones around the world.

The four Peruvian Spanish dialects have distinct and often subtle differences in vocabulary and pronunciation, which vary according to region. To detect these and know the situations in which one is more appropriate than another requires more than technical translation skills. It takes historical and geographical knowledge and sensitivity to Peruvian cultural traditions. For example: Andean Spanish often uses the present tense when referring to the past. Riverside Spanish, spoken by the affluent in Lima, is regarded as ‘standard’ Peruvian Spanish but uses words from the indigenous Quechua language spoken by around 13% of the population – such as yaya (injury). Intimacy with each regional variation’s differences in grammar, vocabulary, and sentence structure, plus familiarity with established and emerging Peruvian slang words and phrases often used by popular newspapers and magazines, gives us the ability to provide you with Peruvian Spanish translations that feature the precise information you want to convey. Our experts ensure that your true meanings and intentions are properly communicated to the audience with whom you or your company wants to speak.
