I am a Spanish>English and French>English freelance translator.

I have now worked as a full-time translator for 4 years, having previously worked as an Information Officer for 5 years at UNEP-WCMC with part-time translation. In the last two years I have mainly worked in the fields of economics and finance, law and culture and heritage.

My legal experience includes commercial contracts, tender documents and a text book on employment law. I have translated policy and project documents (Spanish and French>English) for a number of international organizations, including UNDP and UNESCO, and a series of academic articles on philosophy, sociology, anthropology and economics. I have also translated information and promotional material for several museums, galleries and sites of historical and cultural interest, mainly French>English.

During my BA, I took formal courses in the politics, history and economics of France, Spain and China, as well as language and literature courses. My MA covered linguistics, anthropology and verbal art as well as language policy.
Keywords: Spanish, French, philosophy, anthropology, fine arts, cultural heritage, sociology, economics, finance, law, policy, environment, international development.
