English

English is a fundamental language in our agency. The true lingua franca of the world, i.e. the language that allows people from all countries to communicate. The one that is studied the most, the one that is translated into the most, and the one that is translated from the most.

Despite its common origin (Indo-European) with Spanish, English belongs to the Germanic branch. which is closer to German than to Romance languages such as Spanish. It features a wealth of Greek and Latin lexis in the field of science, as well as French lexis in areas such as gastronomy.

Around 1 billion people use it to communicate via social networks such as Twitter, to search on Google, to research, etc… It is the language of business, the lingua franca for research, etc. This expansion is possible thanks to institutions such as  Cambridge Assessment English, which help to bring this language closer to those who wish to learn it. As a universal language, it is essential for travelling in order to be able to get by in any country.

As a result, it is the clear leader in translation and other language-related services. It is considered the language of science, as all texts in this field are published in English. Another sector with a huge amount of translation activity from and into English is the audiovisual sector: television series and films… And let us not forget that it is the first language in organisations as important as the UN.
