About me
My language combinations

Spanish to English, French to English, Italian to English translations

I am passionate about and have worked extensively in the areas of theatre and music, with 13 and 15 years of experience, respectively, to my name. It is also my great pleasure to work frequently on projects related to marketing. Translation in these fields allows me to demonstrate my years of experience, both professional and "extracurricular", as well as bringing together my work and my love for creative writing.

I also work in the fields of healthcare and contracts.

My profound understanding of cultural and political issues has often given me the opportunity to translate documents pertaining to current affairs and international development, including documents for international institutions and press releases .


MA (Hons) in Interpreting and Translation - Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh (2006-2010)
Summer School - British Centre for Literary Translation (2012)
Norwegian Language Course - Edinburgh University (2012 - present)

I also hold qualifications in several of my fields of expertise from bodies such as the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain, the National Operatic and Dramatic Association and the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. I am a member of's Certified Pro Scheme which assesses translation competence and is a network for top professionals in the industry. I am also an Associate of the Society of Authors.

Periods of residence in Spain and France, where I studied at the Universidad de Granada and the Université Catholique de l'Ouest in Angers.


I work with Trados 2011. I am also able to work in MemoQ, Tag Editor, PDF, InDesign and other file formats.
