Our team is an eclectic group of experts in their areas of specialization who share a common ground: A passion for languages and the written word.
We are linguists, editors, marketing gurus, scientists, doctors, and engineers driven by a desire to design and create content that is equally accurate, functional, and linguistically aesthetic.
At Glossa, we believe there is beauty and method in everything we craft: A technical copy can be syntactically harmonious, while a marketing piece can be both catchy and meaningful.
Our clients have an active role in our projects and this is what sets us apart from our competitors, allowing us to deliver a true-to-brand copy.
We invite you to experience the difference of a service rendered by true experts.
As a boutique firm, we are highly specialized in our areas of expertise, as well as in the language combinations we offer.
We work exclusively on projects in the three languages we master: Spanish, English, and Portuguese.
Our unique approach to language services is a fusion of creativity and methodology. We analyze each project individually and assemble a team based on your specific needs. Our key team member? You —because nobody knows your product better than you do!
This approach also conforms to the principles outlined in ASTM F2575-14, Standard Guide for Quality Assurance in Translation, to which Glossa adheres.
We have successfully combined creativity and methodology by outlining a process based on the ASTM F2575-14, Standard Guide for Quality Assurance in Translation. This standard provides a framework for defining specifications for translation projects, “to arrive at a product of desired quality to serve the needs and expectations of the end user.” This approach, combined with ingenuity and translation technology is what allow us to deliver a translation product of the highest quality.
Finding the perfect combination of words that can elicit a specific reaction in a few brief seconds is what makes it or breaks it in today’s fast-paced world.
Whether it is a slogan, writing content for your website, or creating a style guide for your agency, we can guide you through the complex paths of culture and language, to help you reach your intended market.
Entrust your brand to our team of skilled professional who can deliver world-class services and results.
At Glossa, our core business is language —a language that translates into emotions, actions, and effective ideas.
As language consultants, we act as your “foreign language/culture coach.” From providing a deeper understanding of your brand’s persona in a different language, to creating your image specifically designed for your target language, we help you create a plan and design a course of action to reach your audience.
Perhaps the Multiverse Theory might not be so crazy, after all…
Delivering an error-free copy is an essential trait in the world of written words, and while Glossa integrates proofreading as part of its translation, copywriting, and transcreation services, we also offer proofreading and editing as stand-alone services.
Closely related, yet different in scope, proofreading is the art of catching those elusive mistakes that are only evident to the trained eye, and comparing the target text with its source. While editing involves proofreading features, its aim is to make the copy more fluid and stylistically beautiful in the target language. Editing includes a creative component, and can be done with or without a source text as reference.
The development of biomedical products is a process where every detail matters and mistakes can be extremely costly —even fatal. Glossa’s team of linguists with scientific background delivers peace of mind by providing accurate renditions conforming to industry guidelines and regulations.
The modern patient-centered approach to healthcare means that medical providers must speak the language of their patients. As expert language professionals with medical training, Glossa helps healthcare providers and patients navigate complex language and cultural systems to ensure the best outcomes.
At Glossa, we understand that in the world of luxury, perfection is the norm. Our creative team includes true maestros who write beautiful masterpieces, each word carefully chosen to create a harmonious melody sure to please your sophisticated audience.
According to the American Marketing Association, marketing is defined as “creating, communicating, delivering, and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners, and society at large.” Now, what happens when these activities start in language A but are intended for language B?
You call Glossa to help you navigate through the complex paths of culture and language!
From slogans, to radio spots, to subtitling videos, to websites, our marketing gurus will provide a multidimensional approach to your campaign —no matter how big or small.
Any legal matter involving another language becomes an issue of accurately translating not only specialized terminology, but also legal concepts and doctrines between different legal systems. Glossa’s team of legal translators comprises language professionals with extensive experience in different practice areas, including:

"I would wholeheartedly recommend using Daniela for your translation needs. She is a consummate professional, and you will not be disappointed."The Criterion Newspaper
It is said that meaning turns on a single word, and every day we process an incredible amount of data, a good percentage of which is in written form. Combine this with the short online attention span we inevitably develop to survive our digital age, and we come to the realization that our messages are competing with billions of words out there. That’s why every word counts, now more than ever.
As an International Relations graduate, I have always been fascinated by the complex interactions of the world, and the importance of composing messages with carefully chosen words to create the desired effect on its reader —whether it was to forge an alliance with another kingdom or to avoid a war.
Eighteen years ago, this fascination became my passion, and I decided to devote my entire professional life to the art of crafting effective and compelling written copy in different languages. After almost two decades of experience as a freelancer, the next natural step was to bring my awesome team of colleague-collaborators under one roof.
And that’s how Glossa was born.
At Glossa, it is our privilege to serve clients hailing from industries where security and confidentiality are paramount.
