SDL Trados Studio 2014 Getting Started Part 1: Translating
Professional practices Catriona McDermid endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I'm a freelance translator from Spanish into English based in Madrid. I'm interested in translating all types of text; for me, one of the most interesting aspects of being a translator is researching new topics and learning about things I might never have learned about if I hadn't had to translate a text about them. I particularly enjoy translating texts related to science, current affairs, social science and literature, but during my studies for the CIoL exam I also gained a lot of experience in translating documents from fields such as business and law. I have excellent writing skills in English, and I always produce clear, accurate, well-researched, readable and stylistically appropriate translations.
