Who we are

Two translators, one German and one British, who live and work in Escaladei, at the heart of the Priorat wine-growing region. We have lived in southern Catalonia for more than twenty years and, as language teachers and then as translators, we have worked with many companies and public bodies in a range of administrative, service and industrial sectors. We now work, for both direct clients and translation agencies.
