LinguaVox is a Basque translation agency, as it was founded in the Basque Country and currently has its head office in Bilbao. Our team of talented Basque translators has been selected based on their qualifications (usually a degree in Translation or in Basque Philology), their detailed knowledge of the most common source languages, and their proven experience as professional translators, and their expertise in various technical fields. That explains why the leading translation agencies in the world trust in our Basque Translation Services.
In 2001, LinguaVox emerged as a dedicated Basque translation agency. Today, with our translation agencies in Bilbao and Pamplona, we have a robust presence in the two Spanish communities where Basque is extensively spoken. Our commitment doesn't stop there. Alongside our deep-rooted Basque expertise, LinguaVox proudly operates 16 additional translation offices throughout Spain. We've also expanded our global reach with a translation agency in London and a translation company in Michigan, USA. Our team of in-house Basque native translators and project managers ensures that every translation not only meets linguistic accuracy but also captures the profound cultural essence of the Basque language.

Basque language (called euskera or euskara by native speakers) is truly a linguistic rarity. For decades, linguists and researchers have wondered how this pre-Indo European language originated, and more importantly, how it survived to this day without being absorbed by Latin, like the surrounding Romance languages did. Today, Basque is spoken by approximately 1 million people in Northern Spain (provinces of Navarra, Gipuzkoa, Bizkaia and Araba) and in the South West of France (in the region known as Iparralde, which comprises part of the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department).
Over the past few years, the Basque Government has worked towards the implementation of numerous linguistic policies that aim to promote the use of Basque language among the younger generations. Currently, there are three educational models in place throughout the Basque territories, one of which consists on lessons provided exclusively in Basque (except for Spanish and foreign languages). Basque is also used academically at higher education institutions, and there are several Basque learning programs for adults and immigrants. Moreover, Basque is widely spoken in official institutions and governmental bodies throughout the Basque Autonomous Community.
The efforts to increase the number of Basque speakers seem to be paying off, since according to recent statistics, in some areas one in four inhabitants have chosen to speak primarily Basque, and the overall increase in the number of Basque speakers surpasses 200,000.
Our extensive database of qualified Basque translators allows us to deliver the following specialised services:
• Document translations from English into Basque
• Sworn Basque translation service. In 2009, and due to the increased demand for sworn translations in Basque, the Basque Government implemented a set of directives to regulate the market of certified translation. All our certified Basque translators comply with the official requirements set by the Basque Government and by the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs
• In-country Basque language interpreters (consecutive, simultaneous, over-the-phone, videoconference, etc.)
• Basque multimedia translations (dubbing, subtitling, voice-overs)
• Software localisation by our Basque translation agency.
