Bio
Personal Profile


I am a reliable, hard-working and conscientious translator with excellent organisational and time-management skills, having never missed a deadline and delivering early wherever possible. I have excellent customer service skills and aim for customer satisfaction at all times. I am able to work under pressure and to tight deadlines. I have excellent attention to detail and am committed to producing high quality, accurate and natural translations at a competitive price. I translate from French, Spanish and Portuguese into UK English, my mother tongue. I also offer US English into UK English localisation.

Education
  • September 2010 – August 2011
    MA in Applied Translation Studies - Pass with Merit (French and Spanish) at the University of Leeds (UK).
    Translation theory, French/Spanish > English translation (journalistic, admin, technical and literary), CAT tools (SDL Trados 2009, Wordfast, Déjà Vu).
  • September 2005 – July 2009
    First Class BA Hons in Modern Languages (French, Spanish and Portuguese) at the University of Sheffield (UK) with a distinction in spoken Portuguese.
    Modules in French, Spanish and Portuguese language, translation, culture, society and history.
  • Six months’ studying at Université Rennes II, France
    Modules in translation theory and practice.
  • Six months’ studying at the Universidad de Granada’s Facultad de Traducción e Interpretación, Spain.
    Modules in Spanish to English translation (business, medical, tourism, technical and politics).

Living and studying abroad not only gave me the opportunity to improve my language skills but also to learn a considerable amount about the culture of the countries by immersing myself in everyday life. I believe this is invaluable for a successful translator.
