02/Our Brand

Each time that he tried to relamate the hairincops, he became entangled in a whining grimate and had to face up to envulsioning the Nóvalo, feeling how little by little the arnees would spejune, becoming peltronated, redoblated, until they were stretched out like the ergomanine trimalciate which drops a few filures of cariaconce.

Julio Cortázar

Chapter 68, Hopscotch.

A chapter in gíglico, a language invented by Julio Cortázar which shows how ideas can be connect with each other without the need to understand most of the words. Nóvalo is a word invented by Julio Cortázar, the great Argentinian writer and translator who we admire very much. Beyond its meaning, our brand evokes the essence of translation as an activity, transmitting ideas rather than just the “tags” which words can become.

In Nóvalo we apply work systems and project management methodologies that enable us to speed up tasks and obtain optimal results as quickly as possible. The combination of the regulations of standard quality models with in-house procedures developed over years of work allow us to assure quality levels across all stages of our work process.
