Bla Translation was established in 2013 by Alun Gruffydd when he began working as a full-time independent translator, working from his home in Rhostrehwfa, Anglesey in a small corner of the spare room! He has been a qualified translator since 2001.
He began his career as an archaeologist and the subject remains a passion of his. Some of the earliest words or shapes of our prehistory come from the stones in the burial chambers or cromlechs such as at Barclodiad y Gawres at Porth Trecastell on the West coast of Anglesey. Today, archaeologists continue in their attempts to translate these words and scribes!
The business grew quickly and by 2015 had expanded its client base considerably. Today, Bla Translation comprises a strong team of 8 experienced office-based translators, 2 administrative officers and a further pool of freelance translators who are regularly called upon.
