Bio

Translation, proofreading, interpreting,editing


I am a Spanish native speaker, working with languages for the last 25 years. I studied a Spanish "Filología" (a 5 year long degree, which compares to a BA, in Spanish and English language and literature). I finished two years of a PhD in Contemporary Fiction and Cinema. 

I started teaching English and Spanish in High School and University both in Spain and abroad. I created bilingual materials for Galway University Language Lab for two years.

I completed some courses in English and German translation, spent a year at the  Law Faculty, and started with some legal and commercial interpreting and translation. I worked for a few years in a company that produced and sold medical instruments in Catalonia, being in charge of marketing, legal documents and labelling materials in a multilingual environment, where I improved my Catalan.

I have been working part-time in publishing for the last 8 years, developing marketing materials, proofreading and editing the books before publication and creating several materials for the sales department. I can use Indesign and Photoshop to give shape to text and adjust attached images, so I am able to handle DTP projects. I have experience with children's literature, fiction and specialized texts on art and social sciences. I have a good eye and I am very fussy with details. I have also translated some books from English, most of them fiction. 

Currently, I am a full time freelancer working for different agencies and customers and translating medical records, user manuals, marketing documents, and different materials dealing with religion, music, education, tourism, etc. I proofread for publishing companies and I also teach some English. I have written a couple of published articles and done a few copy jobs. I have worked as interpreter many times (liaison, chuchotage, consecutive). I love challenges and exploring new possibilities!

If I agree on working for you, it means that I am sure I can perform well in your project, as I care for what I do and I will provide you with the best possible result I am capable of.

I will be looking forward to receiving your project proposals!
