Delivering Excellence in Every Project

At Connecta Translations, we are more than translators; we are cultural ambassadors, dedicated to enhancing communication across languages and cultures.

At the helm of our team is Marcela Arenas, a distinguished figure in the world of translation. With over 30 years of expertise, Marcela is not only a certified translator by the American Translators Association but also an accomplished academic and author. Her profound knowledge in the field of translation is complemented by a Master’s degree with a concentration in Marketing, further amplifying her ability to deliver translations that are not just linguistically accurate but also strategically aligned with business objectives.

Our services are more than a transactional exchange of words between languages. We see each project as an opportunity to build bridges – between businesses and communities, individuals and global opportunities, and between diverse cultural landscapes.

Our commitment is reflected in our meticulous attention to detail, unwavering adherence to quality, and an empathetic approach to each client’s unique needs.
