Each assignment is individually quoted based on its specific characteristics. In order to generate a firm quote for our services, your material will be evaluated taking into account a number of factors including the 'language pair' requested, language complexity and/or specialization, formatting needs/challenges, the assignments 'volume' and the project management tasks involved.

This evaluation will determine the 'per word rate' and/or combined 'per hour rate' (when applicable) which we provide in a single detailed quote including delivery timeframe and terms. Standard rates are applied to most translations; however, a per word surcharge can apply for highly technical or industry specific content. GET A QUOTE


How can I determine the quality of a translation?
The simplest definition of a good translation is one that reads as if it had been authored in the target language. To better understand what it takes to obtain an excellent translation, we invite you to read our article 'Translation: The art of rewriting with idiomatic sensitivity'

What if I need a CERTIFIED translation?
Institutional governance and legal procedures will require "certified" translations for items like contracts, consent forms, educational transcripts, birth certificates, etc.

Upon request, our company provides valid Notarized Translation Certificates issued in the United States (Certification fees start at U$40.00).

Should I obtain assessment on my current translations?
It is recommended to seek quality verification, particularly for translations not performed by a specialized provider or that may not be adequately localized for a given market/country.

Our company offers a free review; if translation(s) do not meet accuracy and quality standards, we will provide a free report identifying and quantifying any issues, and quote a cost for having them resolved.

who we are

L A N G U A G E - L E A R N I N G   P R O G R A M S


Language Links, Inc. develops and implements Spanish-language learning programs that address specific needs. They are not structured as survival Spanish courses but as programs to acquire Spanish as a second language.

They are focused on developing oral proficiency that will solve both short-term and long-term language needs and goals as previously assessed for student/s of all levels.

Our core curriculum and structured conversational methodology allows our teachers to provide the same formal per module/level to all types of students (not just for professionals in Corporate or Health Care sectors).

Consult details of our core program by accessing the 'Corporate' program. Students with other professional backgrounds/needs can complete the same structured program and advance through the core curriculum. To adapt to student's needs/sector, our teachers will customize the lesson plans accordingly through integration of topical vocabulary, written exercises, and situational role play.

Cost and Rates

Please e-mail or call us to obtain specific conditions and rates associated to our different language-learning programs and services.

We have proprietary curricula for two Spanish learning programs:

Structure & Methodology

Our programs are implemented by trained native teachers working in small groups (3 to 5 persons). Private one-on-one classes are also offered.

They cover a curriculum teaching a sequence of basic usage and vocabulary as well as the most essential grammar concepts through effective application of the principles and techniques of the "conversational" method.

Classes are conducted in the target language and our instructors are highly trained in the application of the most internationally recognized conversational methodologies for teaching Spanish as a second language. This allows to emphasize fluency over language rules while the student naturally develops the capabilities in grammar, usage, pronunciation, and pertinent vocabulary.

We also offer these language-learning services:

Conversational/Survival Spanish for Travel
These are customized and short (2, 4 or 8 week) programs adaptable to students of all levels.

Tutoring services are available for high school and college level students for both Spanish and French.

Language Proficiency Evaluations
We provide LPE services for companies and organizations needing to assess the foreign language proficiency level of employees/professionals. Available for Spanish and all major European languages.

SPANISH for Health Care Providers

Language Links, Inc. has developed a Spanish-language teaching program that addresses the needs of health care providers. Our program uses lesson plans based on working in small class groups (maximum 1:5 teacher/student ratio).

The program focuses on quickly developing oral proficiency with classes conducted primarily in the target language and lessons structured to progressively merge grammar and health care terminology through multiple class drills and activities that foster student participation.

Lessons are structured around such topics as the patient-practitioner relationship, patient symptoms, medical tests and procedures, diagnoses and treatment and presented in the context of various medical settings.

A core curriculum book (+ audio CD) provides a core basis and sequence for learning topical vocabulary and key grammar. Even though the use of the book during class time is very limited, it provides the student with explanations of concepts and vocabulary taught in class to review at home.

Unique to our program are the supplemental materials and teacher's lesson guides enhancing the core curriculum. These components, prepared by Language Links, are designed to reinforce curricular learning objectives and to enrich the lessons with additional health care and cultural content of value to medical providers communicating with Spanish-speaking patients.

Corporate Spanish Program

Language Links Inc. has developed a Spanish-language Learning Program that specifically addresses the needs of business persons. Our program uses lesson plans based on working in small class groups (maximum 1:5 teacher/student ratio), using a dynamic and effective "conversational" model.

This program focuses on quickly developing oral proficiency to deal with standard travel and work situations in a framework that will allow the student to build permanent skills in the language. Lesson plans follow a core curriculum but are designed to allow students to progressively acquire usage and sentence construction abilities faster and naturally.

Our core curriculum and our lesson plans (proprietary) allow for some customization based on the specific student group's communication needs or professional sector, for example, by integrating topical vocabulary or particular 'situational' exercises to the lesson plans.

Unique to our program is the use of various types of educational materials and teacher activities to enhance learning and to integrate business, travel, and cultural content to the core learning curriculum.

Students will also have access to a series of key handouts and audio (CD) materials for at-home pronunciation and vocabulary practice.
