About me
I am a freelance translator/interpreter of Spanish into English and vice versa, my speciality being journalism and social sciences, particularly politics/history/defence. I've been doing the job full time since 1999 and in that time I have worked for BBC Monitoring (January 2001 to June 2011), the Spanish think tank Fundación Alternativas (April 2006 to present), El Pais English Edition (March to October 2001), the United Nations, FIFA and the Irish Embassy in Madrid, among others.
I currently live with my partner and two children in Cadiz, southwestern Spain.
I am looking to broaden my client base following the termination of my contract with the BBC as a result of the budgetary constraints imposed by the UK government's spending review of autumn 2010 (see link: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/media/tv-radio/after-70-years-monitoring-the-airwaves-bbc-listening-post-could-be-cut-off-2025090.html).
I would like to continue in the same line of work, though I would, of course, consider other specialities.
