Spanish Translation Services

Diverse hands together

HDI provides Spanish/English translation services to studies both inside and outside of the UConn Health. All translation work is completed according to IRB standards and is returned with certification letters for IRB submission. In addition to providing written translation, we also include phone and/or in-depth interviewing and focus groups conducted in Spanish. Standard Spanish is used unless otherwise requested.


  • The Spanish translation Manager is a fluent native Spanish speaker and has been certified through Language Line, the agency used by UConn Health interpretation services.
  • All translators have educational and real-world experience with the Spanish language.
  • Our Spanish translation services are provided by experienced community based researchers with a contextual understanding of public health research.

Translated documents are usually distributed to research participants and it is imperative that they be translated accurately and to the appropriate audience.
