Client Testimonials

"Thanks for all your help interpreting for me at Ronda hospital. Although some of the consultants do speak excellent English they are obviously much happier conversing in their mother tongue. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to others."
Karl Smallman, Jimera de Libar, December 2009

A1 Translations

Paul Whitelock BSc

A1 Translations is Paul Whitelock and associates.  Paul is a Joint Honours graduate in Spanish and German with a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and a Member of the Institute of Linguists (MIL) qualification.  Early in his career, Paul worked as a technical translator for Daimler-Benz AG in Stuttgart, Germany before becoming a teacher.  He taught Spanish, German and French for 15 years in three secondary schools in the North of England.  He was Head of Languages for nine years and a Senior Teacher for three.  For the last 15 years of his career Paul was a Modern Languages Adviser/Inspector.  He took early retirement in 2005 and moved to live near Ronda, Spain in 2008. 

In order to ensure top quality we only use native speakers.  In addition, all our translations are thoroughly checked and proofed for accuracy and authenticity by a third party.  

A1 Translations is part of a network of translators, based both in Spain and elsewhere. Consequently, we have access to a full range of trained, professional translators who can cover most languages.  In other words, if we can’t do it, we know someone who can. Languages covered recently include English, Spanish, French, German, Norwegian, Russian, Dutch, Swedish and Catalán.
