Living and working in Spain for several years, I have developed an extensive knowledge and usage of the Spanish language. In this time I have carried out various translation tasks including student dissertations, tourist leaflets and commercial information. My extensive experience as a Teacher of English as a Foreign Language has given me a comprehenisve knowledge of the target language which enables me to produce high quality translations into English. In 2007, I qualified at MA level in TESOL/Linguistics which further extended my knowledge of the linguistic factors involved in effective translation. I have also worked as a proofreader for student dissertations, which involved the close attention to linguistic detail that is vital for effective translation.
