About

Tellme Translations is a translation company specializing in Spanish & Portuguese > English legal translations. Emily Tell started TT to provide quality translations to the legal, financial and academic industries for over 15 years now.

Emily’s interest in languages began in high school when she was the Vice President of the Spanish Club. Who knew she would then go on to graduate with a Spanish and Latin American Studies BA from the University of Wisconsin – Madison.

While in Madison, she advocated for the rights and interests of Mexicans and Central Americans living in the United States by volunteering with causes such as the conflict in Chiapas, Mexico and migrant farm worker rights in the mid-west.

Her career as a translator started at an international corporate law firm in Santiago, Chile while Emily earned her MA in Linguistics from the Universidad de Santiago de Chile (USACH).

Upon returning to the U.S., she gained experience in a NY immigration law firm while building her business and found her niche in legal translation and interpretation.

In addition to being passionate about languages, Emily founded TT to facilitate cross-cultural-communication in a compassionate and forthright manner so that individuals and organizations from abroad can study, do business and live in the United States.
