TRANSLATION AND NARRATION SERVICES

Danny was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, so naturally, Spanish is his first language. He attended one of Argentina’s most prestigious British schools, BELGRANO DAY SCHOOL, from the age of 3 through completion of high school.

With 15 years of bi-lingual education and having studied subjects in both English and Spanish (ie, literature, physics, chemistry, history, science and biology), he was hand-selected to join The BDSarians (an elite group), translating British books into Spanish. Fortunate enough, he was able to co-write and perform in English and Spanish in a Theater Play called: IT’S POSSIBLE (also directed by students).

After graduating from high school, Danny started working with his dad in his mattress manufacturing company SUAVEGOM, and at the same time he studied Business Management. Being the only one who was bi-lingual in the company, Danny accompanied his father for international business trips as the official translator. All international documentation, such as import documents and contracts, were translated by Danny as well. In 2001, he immigrated to the USA to pursue his business career. In August 2003, he started a brand new opportunity: ACTING, and ever since, he has performed all across the board in the entertainment industry. Please feel free to navigate this website.

TESTIMONIALS RECEIVED

“It has been my pleasure to deal with Danny Pardo over the last year. Mr. Pardo has assisted the great publishing team behind my novels, the #1 National Best Selling, multiple award winning Threads West, An American Saga series with both Spanish translation and Spanish audio narration. The degree of care which goes into his translation is more than impressive, as is the terrific emotion and inflection he lends to the story. It is as if he becomes one with the tale and the characters who live the pages. I must admit my Spanish is at best, rusty, but simply the intonations of his reading evokes the visceral!

I highly recommend Mr. Pardo for any work with Spanish translation, or Spanish narration. He is a pleasure to deal with, highly conscientious, and gifted.”

Truly, you took JUST the right attitude – inflections, emphasized words, all the right moves. You did a marvelous job. I could not be more pleased.”Rob W. Walker
