Spanish Translation at the Nation’s Capital
Washington D.C. the seat of the government of the United States, where the laws and decisions that are ratified affect not only the nation but also the peoples and nations of the world, directly and indirectly. The beautiful metropolitan and international district had been specially established on July 16, 1790 in the neutral area that was chosen by the representatives of the southern and northern states, represented by Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton, respectively.
The permanent residents of the city number about 617,996 as of July 2011. However, the daytime population of Washington D.C. balloons to about one million people daily during the workweek. It always had a significant Black population since its founding and today that section of the population is about 50.7%, while White comprises 38.5%. There are other ethnic groups in Washington D.C., with a large number of Ethiopian immigrants, and people from Asia, Europe and other countries such as El Salvador. Currently the city has about 9.1% who are Hispanics, coming from any race. It is therefore a good decision to have your documents translated into a language that would be understood by a major section of the population when you plan to start a business, study or relocate to the nation’s capital.
Professional and service jobs are the main occupation of people working in the city, most of which are quite young. The federal government provides almost 30% of all the jobs available in the city. Real estate, law firms, lobbying firms, professional associations, non-profit organizations, trade unions, independent defense and civilian contractors, industry trade groups, scientific research, education, and finance are some of the industries of high value that have headquarters in Washington D.C.

- A 2007 report found that about one-third of Washington residents are functionally illiterate, compared to a national rate of about one in five. This is attributed in part to the 170,000 Hispanic, Ethiopian, and Eritrean immigrants, many of whom are not proficient in English.
