Professional practices Sarah Leonard endorses's Professional Guidelines.
I am a freelance translator with 8+ years experience translating Spanish to English as well as editing and proof-reading translated documents and English texts.

I have a bachelors degree from Bard College in Spanish Language and Literature and a Master's degree in Translation and Intercultural Mediation from the Universidad de Salamanca (Salamanca, Spain).

My linguistic and cultural experience from 5 years living, working, and studying in Spain has provided me with a cultural sensitivity to nuance and detail when translating texts.

My mastery of the Spanish language as well as my undergraduate work gives me the ability and skills needed to work with any variation of the Spanish language, from Spain or any Latin American country.

I currently split my time between working with agencies and direct clients and learning new languages (Portuguese!).
My specialisations include medical (pharmaceutical: clinical trial documentation, PILs, SPCs), fashion and retail (major Spanish clothing brands such as Desigual, Mango and Bershka), tourism and hospitality (hotels, restaurants, moorings and ferry companies) marketing, telecom, academia, literary and general texts.

Please contact me with any questions or enquiries!
