I'm not sure at all, but, can this "libre ejercicio" be an equivalent to the Spanish from Spain as "Autónomo",... maybe a very direct translation from the original "freelance"????
Not knowing which country the translation is FROM this is what I actually think it may mean.
I'm understanding by the very little context given that it is someone who does not work for any company... the "titular de la cédula de identidad" makes me think about someone "Autónomo" which in Spanish from Spain means "freelance"...
