The Team

In 1995, we created a consulting firm to meet the needs of academic and scientific  translation and editing in Andalusia. We operated as Etheridiom and we were one of the first companies to offer online translation services.
We are a family business and we work as a team on most projects, combining our knowledge of both cultures and areas of ​​expertise.
As professional translators we have been endorsed by several national and international institutions and business. In the last 20 years, we have translated thousands of projects for companies, universities, publishing houses, and translation agencies.
