English to Spanish Literary Translation and Copywriting services. 

English to Spanish Literary Translation services in many genres, ranging from fiction and non-fiction books to short stories, essays and articles. 

Virginia Translates offers a well rounded approach to translation and copywriting thanks to Virginia’s academic and professional experience in the US, UK and Venezuela.  
 
For us, every translation project represents a new challenge, a new puzzle and a great responsibility. 
 
 

A challenge 

Because each project demands extensive research, an understanding of the source text’s “voice” and constant balancing between the original and the translated text. 
 
 

A puzzle 

Because we play with words, sentences and meaning to make them match the source text as much as both languages allow. It’s an arduous task but we can’t deny it’s fun. 
 
 

A responsibility 

Because the source text is always at the forefront. Our job is to protect it and to deliver a target version that respects the core and soul of the original. 
 
 
 

A gift 

Don't forget that translation is also a gift because it represents the opening of new channels of communications between cultures. Academic and literary critic George Steiner couldn't have illustrated it better: “Without translation, we would be living in provinces bordering on silence.”
