Grupo Scribere is a team made up of 9 professional and passionate linguists who don’t take words for granted. (Please note we are not a translations agency).
At the heart of Grupo Scribere is a true love of words, exceptional writing skills, a broad and expressive vocabulary and an excellent, in-depth knowledge of the grammatical nuances, quirks and rules, idioms and colloquialisms of the target language.
Grupo Scribere marvels at a well written text and is obsessed with cross cultural understanding.
The Scribere team is strongly committed to provide high quality translations and not to let the message get lost due to a bad translation job. When it comes to conveying the essence of the author's heart, we literally go beyond words to achieve this goal!
Grupo Scribere's vision remains to help spreading the richness of literature —both secular and Christian— to the Spanish speaking community.
