Claudia is a qualified lawyer in both Colombia and Spain and the founding managing partner of Ortíz-Fonseca & Abogados. Over the years, her legal work and studies have taken her to various countries worldwide, adding numerous qualifications to her belt, including a Master of Laws from King’s College London, Executive Education at the University of Oxford and membership within the Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn. As she travelled, she realised that writing well not only opens doors academically but on a community level, connecting people together through words. With her passion for languages (native Spanish, fluent English, intermediary Italian, and beginner’s German), she set about creating a Spanish grammar check tool, and iScribo was born.

Hi, I’m Claudia Gerhartz, LLM, the founder and CEO of iScribo, the Spanish grammar check tool. While studying and working abroad, I began to understand that good grammar is critical for successful communication.
I know what it’s like to worry about writing in your second language, fearing what others might say and whether it will affect how you’re seen as a professional. I remember the uncertainty of writing a simple letter or university essay in a second language and how it affected my confidence.
It’s nerve-wracking enough to submit great work in your native language, let alone a second or even third language. Although these are very human – and very normal – feelings, I eventually built up my confidence with the help of different tools and methods that helped me practise my grammar.
Using these tools and realising their benefit, I was inspired to create a tool to help Spanish speakers improve and feel confident in their professional and everyday communication. I took my experience and formed a team of experts to develop iScribo, a Spanish grammar app that ensures you always feel comfortable and sure of yourself when communicating with the world.
So let’s start writing Spanish with confidence!
