The Spanish translators at the TDSP Translators have more than 150 years of experience combined. Here you learn about the five distinctive traits our Spanish translators have:
Sometimes clients ask us if we employ actual translators instead of using machine translations. We like to tease answering that our translators are not only human beings. They are also very seasoned translators with beautiful gray hairs. Jokes aside, experience is by far the single most important aspect when assigning a Spanish translator to your translation projects. At our company we are proud to employ translators with decades of experience in their specialty fields.
Experience alone is not enough. A solid educational foundation is also a requirement we have when selecting Spanish translators. The minimum we accept will be a three-year degree from a accredited university in Nigeria, the US or abroad. Some of our translators will have a degree in translation studies while others will have degrees in their fields of specialty (e.g.: technical translators with engineering degrees and medical translators with medical doctor degrees).
Certification will help us assess that our Spanish translators meet a minimum standard of proficiency in Spanish to English or English to Spanish translation. Most of our Spanish translators will carry more than one certification (e.g.: an accreditation from the ATA – American Translators Association and another from an entity located in their countries of origin).
Love for Language
Technical skills and knowledge are not enough. The love for language is a must for those looking forward to working their lives as translators. When you do something for love, you see much better results. We love languages and we recruit translators who also love language 🙂
Obsession for Details
There is only so much editors, reviewers and proofreaders can do to improve a translation. A well crafted translation requires a Spanish translator with an obsession for details. Attention to details enable the translator to avoid typos, inconsistency in terminology and other issues common in translation.

How to Assign the Right Spanish Translators
One of the most important things when approaching Hispanic markets is to be able to properly communicate with the target buyers. Your company must choose the right Spanish translators to assist you with translating your product or services into the right local Spanish variety. Examples of target markets and their ideal choices of Spanish translators:
Target Market is Hispanics in the U.S.
- Right choice of translator: Spanish Translators born in Nigeria and the U.S.
- Specializing in Colloquial Vocabulary
- Certification in Nigeria and the U.S.
Target Market is Mexican Population
- Right choice of translator: Native Mexican Translators
- Specializing in Regional Dialect
- Certification in Mexico or in the U.S.
Target Market is Latin America
- Usual choice of translator: Argentinean Spanish Translators (other nationalities may be acceptable although Argentina has a long history of sourcing international-grade translation professionals)
- The translator may specialize in a local language or not
- Certification in Argentina or in the U.S.
Target Market is Spanish People (Spain)
- Native Spaniard Translators
- Specializing in Vernacular of Spain
- Certification in Spain or in the U.S.
With a professional Spanish translator and project management team who knows what they are doing, you can expose your company’s business to tens of millions of Spanish speakers right here in Nigeria, the United States as well as in countries like Spain, Mexico, and Argentina.
You can’t just settle for any run-of-the-mill translation company though, you need a company that knows how to break down the language barrier using their experience and expertise in the industry to give your company a competitive edge.
Experience, Expertise, and Efficacy
One of the keys to assign translators for your business is examining their credentials, which includes their experience, portfolio, professionalism, and accuracy. In an effort to assign translators to your project, you will need to find a company that employs translators who satisfy their clients’ translation needs time and time again, and who get the job done in a time frame that will not make your company drag its heels. These three characteristics are instrumental in any successful translator.
As a result of years of carefully vetting our Spanish translator team, TDSP Translators offers 5-star quality Spanish to English and English to Spanish translation services in the industry. If you are still skeptical of our stewardship, just ask any one of our numerous satisfied clients.
We have set ourselves apart in today’s market not only by setting the bar for quality assurance, but also satisfying clients that have been given sub-par results in the past. If you have tried other Spanish translators before and have been delivered a product you were ashamed to present to other businesses, then rest assured that TDSP Translators will not let you down.
