The importance of Catalan and its translation
Catalan translation from or into Catalan has become highly valued and has gradually made its way into this professional field. It is one of the most sought after languages nationally and internationally, due to its strong economic and cultural presence, and its interest in independence. It is a language spoken by 80 million people, one of the four official languages of Spain and the official language of Andorra.

Catalonia as an economic and cultural engine
Undoubtedly, Catalonia has been one of the main economic and cultural engines of Spain. Innovation and the implementation of cultural plans have turned Catalonia into a necessary axis for Spain.
It has also been the birthplace of famous personalities such as Salvador Dalí, Pau Casals or Ana María Matute.
Catalan translation has been, therefore, an indispensable tool to transmit this culture to the rest of the non-Catalan-speaking population, so the need for a Catalan translation company like ours is clear.
History of Catalan translation
In Ramón Lladó’s words, “the Catalan culture has almost always been a culture of translations”.
As early as in medieval times, the phenomenon of translation between Spanish and Catalan has taken place as a form of cultural exchange.
One of the most complicated stages for Catalan translation was the Francoist period. After Franco‘s victory, many Catalans had to leave the country and Catalan was banned. Despite these difficulties, many Catalan translators continued with the arduous task of translating and surviving.
The goal of a Catalan translation company like Translinguo Global® is to continue offering this historical service and to continue breaking down borders between different languages and tongues in order to achieve global communication without obstacles.
