Spanish to English

Hi all.

I'm an aspiring literary translator. In order to improve my skills, I feel that it would be beneficial to take a look at some Spanish texts that have already been translated into English. I would then have a go at translating the source text myself and then compare my product to the existing one to then learn techniques and how to improve my work or indeed, it may be that my version is better.

I am just wondering what your thoughts are on this approach?

I am keen to initially try contemporary children's / teen short stories.
