Translation in Uruguaj

Freelance translators and translation companies

Discuss this feature
Translation in Uruguay has a long tradition, with one of the first formal translation studies in Latin America and renowned linguists such as Prof. Roberto Puig and Lic. Sara Alvarez Catalá de Lasowski.

Uruguayan translators tend to be well educated, many having earned relevant university degrees, and some also have done additional coursework in their areas of expertise. A combination of factors including a reputation for quality, a brand of Spanish that "travels" well, and international experience in many cases, has led to substantial use of Uruguayan translators by international firms.

Several hundred professionals are members of the "Colegio de Traductores Públicos del Uruguay", which operates a system of "sworn" translators, and promotes the profession.

The ProZ.com community in Uruguay is very lively and closely-knit. Powwows, trainings and a Conference have been held in Montevideo.
