Bio
I am an extremely competent Spanish-English translator with extensive experience, producing texts for all kinds of documents in perfect English,
I am a native English speaker who has lived and worked in Spain for 16 years, hence my Spanish is excellent. What's more, my entire 25-year career has been based on my wide-ranging language skills.
My two years as a full-time Teacher of English as a Foreign Language and the ongoing private classes, assisting English learners of all ages and abilities, ensure my knowledge of English grammer and language construction is faultless. My extensive and wide-ranging editorial experience and skills are based on launching and editing for nearly eight years a glossy magazine for English-speakers in Spain, preceded by five years' as local news editor on the biggest English-language newspaper in Spain and two years as associate editor of trade magazines in the UK. My earlier experience as a researcher for a women's and consumer organisations with responsibility for producing clear and concise reports and briefings on the topics of the day adds another important ability to my repertoire.
A key area of my work on publications in Spain has always been to produce concise and accurate translations and summaries of local, regional and national Spanish news: part of my post with Doble Espacio Multimedia y Communicación included the translation of the monthly print version of Noticias del Levante from Spanish to English as well as English translations as needed for the graphic design side of the business, including brochures and promotional materials, and for associate publication supplements. I write weekly news items and posts in Spanish and English for the RE/MAX Paraíso website and Facebook pages, I so video interviews in Spanish for the company's Almeria Life Youtube channel, and the working language of the office is Spanish.
I have four years' experience acting as translator at meetings of communities of owners for residential complexes, also providing the translations of all meeting documents, agendas and minutes. And I have translated the content on various kinds of websites, including sites for estate agencies, restaurants and private health clinics.
In addition to my skills with the Spanish and English languages, I am highly reliable and efficient, and very used to working to tight deadlines: if you need a job done within a specific timeframe then I will get that job done.
In short, I deliver.
