Welcome to the Black Squirrel Translator Collective
The flexibility of freelancers, the ease of an agency.
Founded in 2016, we are a group of women Spanish to English translators who graduated from Kent State University's Master's program in Spanish>English Translation. We provide translation, editing, and proofreading services for Spanish>English projects, and each project has a designated project manager.
The collective is named after the unofficial mascot of the city of Kent, Ohio, the black squirrel.

The BSTC accepts projects in the specialties of our current members, therefore our specializations may change as our membership changes. Currently our main focuses are medical, legal, vital records, educational records and business projects.
