Who We Are


Who Are We?

DeScribe is a partnership of two qualified translators: one Spanish native speaker and one English native speaker, both with a passion for language. We were inspired to set up a service where our customers will benefit from our collaborative approach to their translation request.

For Spanish translation, we work together on every translation received to ensure that it surpasses your expectations in terms of cultural sensitivity, fluency and accuracy. Applying our native knowledge of English and Hispanic language and lifestyle, we are ideally placed to assist you with projects targeting the UK, Spain and North, Central and South America, bringing in local experts to advise where required. We work in direct contact with our clients which means that there are no intermediaries, resulting in a reduced cost to you, our customers.

For translation with other major languages, please visit our Other Languages tab to learn how we guarantee you a quality service through a select team of qualified, trusted and experienced translators.

Claire Thompson is a Qualified Member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting, United Kingdom and holds a master’s degree in Translation as well as a first class honours degree in Applied Languages.

Cristina Tejero Penco holds a UK master’s degree in Translation and a Spanish undergraduate degree in Translation and Interpreting. She is a Traductora e Intérprete Jurado de Inglés, or in English a ‘sworn’ translator, approved by the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Both partners share over 15 years’ experience as translators and have extensive professional experience in research, education and retail environments. Between them, Claire and Cristina have worked in the UK, USA, Latin America, New Zealand, Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
