About me
MARÍA BELLIDO LOIS Technical, Marketing and Tourism translator Spanish - German - English - Italian TINTA TRANSLATIONS My Email m.bellido@tinta-translations.com


After graduating from the Translators School in Zurich, Switzerland, I completed my studies in German and Spanish Philology at the University of Heidelberg, Germany.

During the almost 12 years that I lived in Germany, I worked as a Spanish lecturer at the Karlsruhe University of Applied Science in Karlsruhe and as an in-house technical translator at John Deere company in Mannheim.

I have completed translations and revision work for leading companies including: Daimler-Chrysler, Siemens, John Deere Ibérica, Warner Bros Spain, and the German Tourism Office in Madrid.

My professional background is most focused in technology, marketing, software, and tourism translation.

I have done additional specialized training in international commerce, logistics, marketing and renewables.

Since 2003 I am based in Madrid and work as freelance translator, interpreter, proofreader and Spanish teacher for several companies and translation agencies.
