Our story begins several years ago when Cláudia Figueiredo and Sónia Dias started working together as freelance translators.
Over the years, the team grew, as did our expertise and know-how. So, in 2015, Cláudia Figueiredo decided to create Chancexpression, which in 2021, was rebranded to Verbarium — Luso Translation Boutique.

WHAT DRIVES US?
Language is our passion, and we believe dedication and transparency are the cornerstones of our success.
Our team has different talents, depending on each member’s aptitudes. When we accept a project, we know who to assign it to because we’re aware of each person’s strengths. A technical translator works very differently from a creative one, and thus, our team is well-rounded and able to meet various needs.
We like to describe our agency as a translation boutique; we are a small and closely knit group that specializes in high-quality services. Although we offer single language translations as our primary service, we can also assist you with translating other languages as well.
We offer the intangibles that larger companies just simply can’t compete with! Our boutique gives each and every customer as much support as needed, every step of the way. You can rest assured that we’ll be reliable, telling you everything you need to know upfront. Customer satisfaction is our top priority!
Over the years, our team has grown conscientiously without losing sight of our purpose: to create value for the customer instead of operating as an “assembly line” in a factory.
Here, we take pride in our professional relationships and never neglect our services in favor of sales. Each project is handled individually, and we understand each customer has their own vision for their brand, whether it is corporate or personal.
So, we are here to help you take that next leap towards your future with confidence. This means you’ll get transparency from our team—there are no hidden costs nor ambiguous talk.
If this approach resonates with you, contact us! Our recommendations are honest and our quotes are free and non-binding.
Explore our website and blog, and subscribe to our newsletter! We create our own materials to reflect our energy.

What Are the Advantages of Working with Us?
At our translation boutique, our experience has brought us valuable learning that’s mirrored in our current model, which consistently generates quality results. We highlight the main features of our formula for success below:
Small and cohesive internal team: This allows us to provide each customer and project with a custom-made service, also preventing linguistic dispersion during the work stages, which often occurs in larger companies.
Selected network of trusted external collaborators: We only work with professionals we trust, that have proven their quality over the years, to support us in projects with highly specific features.
Free and non-binding quotes: We are transparent about each step, guiding the customer to the best option according to his or her vision and needs. These consultations are non-binding, so you can feel completely confident in your decision.
Complete solution: All our Standard Translations go through three stages—translation, proofreading, and re-reading (final quality assurance)—reducing the costs of independent hiring by the customer, and ensuring a quality result at competitive prices.
Draft Translations: These translations are carried out ion a shorter time frame than our full three-stage process, appropriate, for example, for internal documents that are not meant for external distribution, budgetary documents, business emails, news articles, etc. In short, preliminary translations are ideal when you need to understand the gist of a document but cannot spend the same budget that you would normally allocate to a major communication or proposal. Draft-quality translations are translated by a qualified translator but not subject to the proofreading or quality assurance stages of our standard process.
Translation Boutique: We operate as an intimate group of dedicated individuals that will put your vision at the forefront. We value your trust and we promise to deliver exactly what you’re looking for. Our team is skilled, but we’re also friendly and excited to have the opportunity to work with you.
Absolute confidentiality: The members of our internal team, as well as our external collaborators, are bound by a Confidentiality Agreement that guarantees the protection of your project’s contents before, during, and after the execution of our services.
