Bio

An experienced, reliable and affordable bilingual translator based in Spain. I deliver a high-quality, professional freelance service — on time.

Your translated material will not only be linguistically correct, it will flow and project the message and tone of the original. I achieve this by clarifying the underlying message of the text in a contemporary British (or American) style that is accurate, clear and always consistent. This method ensures your message is not lost in translation, as can so often be the case.

You can view samples of my work here in my profile.

Before becoming a full-time translator in 2006, I spent 10 years working as an IT System Administrator for a major UK charity in London — making IT documentation one of my main areas of expertise, and a platform for my leaning towards technically oriented translations.

This by no means limits the areas in which I work, however, and I have demonstrated proficiencies in numerous other fields (see below).

In addition to a degree in Computer Science and living primarily in my target country (Spain) for 13+ years, I hold a Diploma in Translation from the Chartered Institute of Linguists in London, among other translation qualifications.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for a quick and easy quote

And thanks for your interest in my services
