Bio

A qualified English to Spanish translator and proofreader with five years of solid linguistic experience in the audiovisual and legal fields. 

I was born and grew up in Cordoba, Argentina, where I completed a BA in Translation Studies at the National University of Cordoba in 1996.

Since 1997, I have worked in London in the areas of translation, library services and academic support. In 2002, I completed an MA in Applied Translation Studies (English to Spanish) at London Metropolitan University, ex University of North London, with a specialisation in shipping contracts' language.

I have a passion for languages, translation, inter-cultural exchange and communication, and would love to assist with any projects that require my linguistic knowledge and skills in English and Spanish.
