1 / 17 Summary. The case describes the origins, the effort and the tenacity of three canary island’s guys, graduates in a bachelor’s of Humanities that, after receiving specialized training in audiovisual translation, decide to create their own translation company. The determination that the promoters of Subbabel show for the defense of an exciting profession, their firm commitment to R&D and the vocation of the non-local business project, put them as an example of technology-based company in the region. Its recent inclusion in the APEX program - Learning How to Export – of the Spanish Institute for Foreign Trade, leads them to a new dimension and vision of the market that will require discipline in the management and an increase in competitiveness. Challenges that they are willing to assume.

Jennifer Vela and Carlos Perez, both graduated in Translation and Interpretation by the ULPGC, and Javier Pérez Vigaray, graduated in English Philology at the University of La Laguna, volunteered to lead and coordinate all their classmates in the work undertaken for the Festival. Even though their effort and the hours of work were beyond the required by the practices of the master, the experience was pleasant and positive, being satisfied with the results they had achieved in this, his first big project. Such was the impact that had for all their participation in the Festival, that when the directors of the Master were presented to them the employment opportunities that their studies offered to professional audiovisual translation in Canary Islands, far from being discouraged by the few job prospects in the region, raised the possibility of establishing their own company, one that would allow them to be placed professionally and forging a future in which encompassed all the colleagues with whom they had shared so many hours of training and effort.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
