Thinking Side

The human brain comprises two hemispheres. The right brain specialises in sensations, feelings and creativity; this side controls the way we perceive the world. The left brain is responsible for our more logical, rational side, the side that handles maths, figures, writing and speaking; the side, we could say, that houses our power of expression.

A healthy brain needs both sides: it understands ideas and concepts and stores these in non-verbal language, then it translates them into a learned language. The side that processes and translates this information is known as the thinking side.

That’s how our company works: we listen to your ideas (which might not be complete or structured; ideas often aren’t), we make sure we understand them and we process that information to translate it into another language, guaranteeing a professional, meticulous, personalised, timely service. We can help you;

Who is the face of Thinking Side?

Let me introduce myself: My name is Aída Ramos and I have a degree in English Studies from Universidad de Deusto and a Master’s in Translation from Dublin City University. I’m also a member of the Spanish translators association ASETRAD.

I’ve been living and working in Madrid since 2007, and before I made Thinking Side my full-time project I worked for various companies, including Double O Publishing Services, Jones Lang LaSalle, the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Translation and the Spanish Embassy in New Delhi.

Do I work alone?

No, far from it: I work with a broad range of freelancers specialising in various fields and languages; like me, they give their all to make sure our clients always receive a product that meets their needs within the desired timeframe.
Like you, I choose to work with the best!
