¿Como se dice “production” en espanól?


I know production is producción in espanól.
But I cannot tell how the speaker on spanish dict website dictionary is pronouncing the first c in producción. Is it a soft c like s or a hard c like k? Is there a rule to go by when the two c's are together like that?

The first "C" is hard like "K" and second "C" soft like "S" and all "CC' combinations are pronounced this way. "Pro-dook-see-own"

Thanks. Well, I tried. I also listened to the pronunciation in the dictionary. It seemed rushed and it was very hard to hear the "k." - 0057ed01, DIC 17, 2009

Good question, well phrased.

And the answer is: it's a soft "c."

Further, usually, 2 "c's" are soft - at least, from my experience.

But I wouldn't be surprised to learn there are exceptions.
