About me
translatorstudio.co.uk / estudiotraductor.es

I am an experienced, full-time Spanish to English translator and trainer. I am a native English speaker (UK) and have been based in Spain since 2003, although I make regular trips to the UK. I have been translating professionally since 2007 (full-time since 2009). I am registered self-employed (autónoma) in Spain. I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists. Find out more about me on my website: translatorstudio.co.uk.

I specialise in legal, business, marketing and academic texts. I have translation experience in a wide variety of other fields and work regularly in marketing and tourism. I translated a novel that was published in September 2011, called "A Future in the Past". I have also worked on several non-fiction books.

I hold an MA in Legal Translation (distinction), MA in Translation studies, BA in Hispanic Studies and French and the Diploma in Translation from the Chartered Institute of Linguists.

I am a proz.com trainer and my webinars include: Improve your written English: 50 of our favourite mother-tongue mistakes; Practical Spanish to English translation quality assurance 1 (Terminology) and 2 (Style); Getting your training right; Post-graduate translation qualifications: Diptrans & MA; Getting your prices right; and Anticipating, preventing and dealing with arguments and complaints. I am a translator tutor on the course I have written to help translators prepare for the IoLET DipTrans exam. Follow my blog here: translatorstudio.co.uk/blog/.

I have TRADOS Studio 2015.

Prior to working as a full-time translator I worked in TEFL for 7 years with all ages and levels. During that time I was heavily involved in the organisation of two TESOL Spain conferences in Seville. I also taught Spanish for a year in the community education environment in South Wales.
