Professional practices Veronica Sardon endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I am a former journalist with a broad, international background. I am bilingual in English and Spanish, and have obtained the CIOL's Diploma in Translation (DipTrans) in both English-Spanish and Spanish-English. I can produce translations to meet the highest standards in four language pairs (EN>ES, ES>EN, FR>ES, FR>EN), and my fields of expertise are international development, education and the social sciences.

I am Spanish and have lived in Argentina for 15 years. Prior to that, I spent seven years in England (I finished school there and studied Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Oxford University), and one year in France.

I have a Master's degree in Journalism from Madrid's Universidad Complutense. As an editor for a wire service in Spanish, first, and then as Latin American correspondent for a wire service in English, I have worked closely for over a decade with correspondents in my agency who write in Spanish from countries across the region, so I am familiar with different language variants.

As a freelancer, I have translated two books from English into Spanish, and many other documents between these and other languages.

In journalism, as in translation, communication skills, attention to detail and meeting deadlines are vital. You can expect my services as a translator to be among the very best in terms of the crucial price-quality-speed triangle.
