Instant Telephone Translation Service 24h

we recommend:

Our service is an Instant Telephone Interpretation Service 24h.

 

We are not an advice line, chat line nor information line and we do not provide a written translation service.

We occasionally get asked questions during the calls and we usually direct the caller to this page then tell them to hang up quickly to save their money!

For example, if you ask us "Where is the best restaurant in Denia?" we can tell you "¿Donde esta el mejor restaurante en Denia?" but we won't use your call time to chat about opinions on restaurants - there are much cheaper ways to get that information!

But if you need help with documents, general information or legal advice etc, please find below a list of carefully selected official and reputable sources of information, advice and services of things we sometimes get asked for by non Spanish people living in Spain...

*If you are an English speaking service that you think should be listed on this page, please contact us via our facebook page to discuss our qualification process.
