About me
Highly specialized in every aspect of music business, from musical Instrument's manuals to Music Theory and applications; hundreds of user manuals already translated, plus thousands of advertising leafsheets.

I have been working as a sound/light engineer in England for several years, gaining a very deep knowledge of the modern musical instruments and the technology that lies underneath.

I consider myself a fast, reliable and very accurate translator.
Up to 3000 words per day.
Week-end and last-minute jobs welcome. Also editing and translation of files directly in Adobe Framemaker, Pagemaker, Illustrator and AutoCAD. Available for alignment of TMs.
