About me
  • Lawyer-translator
  • Translating for the Court of Justice of the European Union
  • 15 years of legal practice
  • 8 years of legal translation experience
  • BSc in Economics
  • Spanish Philology professor
  • Legal, marketing and business-related texts

I am a registered Spanish lawyer with 15 years of legal practice and 8 years of legal translation experience, and I also specialize in corporate, marketing and business-related translations.

Why should you hire me?

- I am a senior lawyer-linguist specializing in legal translations for the en<>es language pairs.

The legal field is one in which a single mistranslated word can lead to catastrophic consequences, but the fact is that this kind of mistake does arise (and quite more often than it should), and sometimes it will completely change the meaning of a key paragraph or just make it ambiguous. Besides, getting it right is just the beginning. The translation needs then to be easily understood by Spanish readers, for which correct syntax, punctuation and word choice is essential. Prevent problems for yourself and others by hiring the right professional from the start.

- I have a degree in Economics (from the London School of Economics) and work part-time as a Philology university professor, which strongly qualifies me for business, marketing and literature translations.

Sometimes communicating or just conveying a message is good enough. Top selling products in high demand, blunt business partners with no time for stylistic niceties or maybe it is just that you don't care that much about your corporate image. But others second best won't do, and that's where I come in: I write flawless, publication-quality Spanish that doesn't seem translated.

- I can translate up to 3,000 words per day (non specialized texts).

- I guarantee the quality of my translations (you'll get your money back if low quality is detected!):

All my translations are quality controlled by a second translator

All texts are proofread by a professional proofreader

- I am always available if you need me (Skype and email)

Furthermore, I have extensive experience managing projects in a wide range of languages and possess strong project management skills, which permits me to provide translation services in the following language combinations:

-Spanish into English

-English into French

-English into German

-English into Chinese

-English into Polish

-Spanish into French

-Spanish into Chinese

-Spanish into Polish

-French into Spanish

-German into Spanish
