Laura Valdés, Founder of Valdes Language Services

Translator and Interpreter for Spanish <> English

Language access is critical in today’s world.

✔️Did you know that there are over 42 million people in the United States that speak Spanish?
Spanish is the second most spoken language in the U.S.
✔️How many of those people can’t access your services and resources because you haven’t hired an interpreter and translator?
✔️What happens if Spanish speaking communities miss out on your services and resources?

Now you can connect with Spanish-speaking communities by bridging the
Spanish <> English language gap with me, a passionate, multi-linguist interpreter and translator.


With over 12 years of experience, I have helped hundreds of clients with translation and interpretation services all over the world.

Clients include professional service organizations and companies that share my passion in ensuring Spanish speakers have access to services and resources available to native English speakers.

Here are some sectors that I have experience working with: regional agencies and organizations, non-profit and community based organizations, food justice, healthcare, mental health, wellness, business, personal and professional development, legal, education, and immigration justice.

My goal is to be a friendly and reliable resource for your translation and interpretation needs.
