About me
I am a native Spanish speaker with a fluent knowledge of English and French both written and oral. As my enclosed résumé shows, I have been preparing for a competitive exam to join the Spanish Foreign Office for the last six years. Part of the training consisted of translatingliterary texts from English and French into Spanish and vice-versa. I am acquainted with 19th and 20th century English literature, the film speech, English idioms as well as the particulars of British and American English.

As of my knowledge of Spanish I am an old-school journalist committed to both delicacy and precision when writing. I worked for 18 months as a copywriter and proofreader for a Spanish Charity website, created some banners and contacted regional newspapers so they would publish articles from our Communications Department. I had been previously employed by a Spanish Magazine centered on parent’s issues (education, leisure, tourism and so on) where I worked as a copywriter and a reporter, and dealt with some of the subscribers. Finally I want to express my interest in bringing my cultural background to the mix. I am used to deadlines, to write starting from scrap and to display a team-working attitude.

Besides I am persistently obsessed with details so that, once translated, a text can be read smoothly and the beams are hidden to the common eye.
