Presentation letter

Juan José Arevalillo Doval
Managing Director.

Dear reader,

I would like to begin by welcoming you to the website of Hermes Traducciones y Servicios Lingüísticos, where you will find information on our activities and other information of interest.

We have a firm commitment to the communities that speak the languages we translate, which is why we belong to various national and international associations in our field.

We see ourselves as more than just a translation company. We firmly believe in our industry, and that is the reason why we are present on various professional forums and, more importantly, in the university community, since we believe we have an obligation to reduce the broad gap that often exists between universities and enterprise. We therefore sponsor various academic events, conferences and university training and research programmes, and we are willing to collaborate in as many university activities as is necessary. It is in the universities that future translators are being trained, which is why we want to collaborate and reduce the learning curve of new graduates so they can integrate into the labour market more quickly.

Some companies and industries do not always see the importance and the future benefits of their investments in translation activities. It is worth remembering that about 90% of the information and culture we receive during our lifetimes is the result of translations. This activity is therefore of paramount importance. We have all heard about translation blunders that have ruined the image of companies and products simply because the wrong word was chosen. We believe in our work and in the dignity of translators. For that reason we keep a team of highly qualified professionals to offer our current and future customers maximum quality and professionalism.

We believe that direct, fluid communication with customers is essential throughout a translation project. This two-way communication results in better services, a win-win scenario and a better understanding of the purpose of each party.

We hope that you like the information you find on our website, and encourage you to contact us if you would like any further information on the services offered by Hermes Traducciones y Servicios Lingüísticos.

Yours faithfully,

Juan José Arevalillo Doval
