I am a full-time freelance translator with a previous Degree in Veterinary Medicine. My scientific background allows me to deliver accurate, polished life science translations.

I also have 5-year experience as a project manager, copy editor and translator in a publishing house entirely dedicated to animal health.

Comprehensively trained in life sciences translation (animal health and veterinary science, animal production, food safety, human medicine), I also provide translation services (and I really enjoy it!) in the following fields: tourism and outdoor activities (horse riding, hiking, trail running, MTB, climbing, snowshoeing, and skiing), agribusiness, environment and marketing.

Some recent projects (2019-2020) include:

  •  Presentation on a feed additive for livestock (EN-to-ES translation)
  •  Marketing pieces and press releases for an audio brand (EN-to-ES translation)

  •  Two children's educational books (FR-to-ES translation)
