Do you think something is missing from your Spanish translations?

Charles Eames said it best: The details are not details. They make the product. And yet so many translations are like signs with missing letters: sometimes sad, sometimes unfortunate.

Feel free to browse around the site or GET IN TOUCH to let me show you how a carefully crafted translation can help you.

The Speech Accent Archive

The speech accent archive is a large set of speech samples from a variety of language backgrounds. Native and non-native speakers of English read the same paragraph and are carefully transcribed.

Theoretically, I should sound like this (I was born 50 km away from the speaker´s hometown; she´s 32 and I´m 31). But I don´t, nor can I detect any trace of a Galician accent in her speech.
