Bio
• Well-versed in providing system-wide foreign language translation
services in order to facilitate communication

• Over 25 years of experience in the industry, with relevant qualifications
both as a translator and a writer

• Knowledge and understanding of the source language that goes beyond
the merely academic, having lived in the UK for almost two decades

• Natural capacity to adapt marketing messages or brand names to
bridge cultural gaps, without losing their intended impact

• Adaptability to changes and new instructions, while guarantying
consistency with previous/future translations and client's approved
terminology in long-term projects

Delivering quality is my main priority. I never take on assignments beyond my capabilities or outside my areas of specialisation. I always read briefings carefully, making sure all instructions are clearly understood and solving any doubts before I begin work. By only accepting realistic deadlines or workloads, I can guarantee impeccable timing.


FEEDBACK FROM SATISFIED CLIENTS

"I can indeed recommend Ms Elena Sepúlveda as an excellent and fast translator from English into Spanish. She translated brilliantly complex articles (like those by Robert Fisk) for my newspaper in a matter of hours. She was also a fine colleague for our teamwork."
Carlos Enrique Bayo Falcón
Director, Público's newspaper

"I highly recommend Elena Sepúlveda for Spanish translations. While an excellent all-around translator, she is very responsive, punctual, motivated and efficient. She always goes the extra mile to provide the best service, and her positive attitude deserves special mentioning."
Diana Sanchez
Project Management Lead, Nova Language Services

"Elena is a brilliant translator, she has an in-depth knowledge of English through living in the UK and is creative and innovative."
Josephine Bacon
