La Gr@not@’s Translation Services


The members of our team have spent years as residents (not tourists or occasional visitors) in the following countries:

The U.K.

Spain (including many years in Catalonia)

The U.S.A.



We are, therefore, not only fluently multilingual, but conversant with idioms, slang terms, and common usage that won’t be found in dictionaries or in language schools.


To be a really good translator, one should be truly bilingual.


Let me give you an example. A Catalan translation of J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher In The Rye (to which they gave the title The Young Seducer) translated “all he did in his spare time was beat women off with a club” (i.e. he was so attractive that he continually needed to defend himself against amorous approaches by women) as “he spent all his leisure time beating women with a rod” (translated back into English)!


So we’re ideal translators from and into (in alphabetical order): Catalan, English, German, and Spanish.


At this time, we are not accepting technical or medical texts for translation.


Our rates are 0·05€ per word (5€ for 100 words, minimum fee 5€)


Send work to be translated as .doc attachment to (first remove the 222) with “translation work” as the title of the e-mail. Do not send money until we contact you.
