About me
Full-time English and French into Spanish translator and proofreader

Agricultural machinery, book translations

Welcome to my profile!

I'm a qualified English and French into Spanish translator with many years' experience. I am from Spain, where I lived until I relocated to London in January 2011.

I have been working in the translation field for more than 14 years, first in an in-house position as project manager and proofreader in a book translations company, and since 2009 as self-employed, when I started translating for a leading agricultural machinery manufacturer. I have experience translating brochures, technical specs, press releases and website texts about ploughs, cultivators, seed drills, fertilizer spreaders, cutters and shredders, and more.

I also work in the publishing field, where I offer translation and proofreading services, as well as final quality control of DTPed texts. I mainly work with travel guides, cookery books, handcrafts and children's literature. I am therefore specialized in processing texts before they are published to ensure that they are accurate, make sense and read well.

I am happy to provide both translation and proofreading services, as well as final pre-delivery check of texts in Spanish. Additionally, I work with InDesign (CS4, CS5, CS5.5, CS6 and CC versions) for Mac, so I can deliver your documents typeset if needed.

My strength lies in my innate eye for detail, my ability to provide natural Spanish texts and an excellent customer service: I am always willing to go the extra mile to accommodate my clients' needs. 

Thank you for your interest in my services. Do not hesitate to contact me for further information about my profile or a quote.
