Bio
About me
With an academic background in analytical linguistics, specialising in semantics, my first professional work as a linguist involved stylistic corrections and editing of PhD theses and research papers in biochemistry.

Moving to Barcelona in the mid-1990s, I offered language and communication services, mainly to clients in the insurance and university sectors, and also began to accept freelance translation projects.

Over the years my client base and areas of activity in both language and communication training and translation have widened to include the automobile sector, electronics, industrial manufacturing, IT and pharmaceuticals.

My translations
Offering a unique blend of absolute precision in English and first-hand experience in a range of academic, business and industrial fields, I enable you to express exactly what you want to say; my words your voice.
