About me
I am a Spanish native freelance translator based in Bilbao, Spain. Having graduated in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and then in Environmental Sciences, I am a skilled user of several Windows-based applications related to translation (including Trados 2007), and this has been an advantage for both translating technical documents and learning new applications.

I have worked for a long time as a teacher, biochemist for a laboratory and collaborated with different scientific projects. My preferred fields and combinations are education, science and engineering from both English and French into Spanish.

Due to the confidential nature of many projects, I am bound to secrecy by signed agreements. Examples of these projects are clinical trial and medical devices materials, biomedical and engineering patents, MSDS (material safety data sheets), patient guides, safety documents or automotive user manuals.

Sports and Games are also one of my passions. I play football and basketball and I climb and swim twice a week. I also have obtained the Spanish lifeguard certification.
