About me
I grew up in the UK and France, and have worked as a translator and interpreter on the U.S.-Mexico border for the last eight years. This has given me native-like proficiency in French and Spanish, in addition to my first language, English.

* MA in Specialized Translation (EN/FR>ES) from the University of Córdoba in Spain, specializing in the legal and financial fields
* BA in Translation (EN<>ES) from the Autonomous University of Baja California in Mexico
* Literary baccalauréat from France, specializing in French literature and the English and French languages
* Schooled in the UK and France; higher education in Mexico and Spain

* Most of my translation experience is into English (both UK and US variants), but I also have considerable experience into Spanish and French.

* I have across-the-board experience in translation, but the bulk of the my work is legal, financial and environment-related. I have substantial experience translating for international organizations, and also regularly translate educational research papers into English for journals (notably the REDIE).

* Freelance conference interpreter since 2012, mostly at binational U.S./Mexican conventions and events promoting cooperation on the border.

* Member of faculty in the BA in Translation at the Autonomous University of Baja California

Past assignments include work for UNESCO, the French embassy in Mexico, the Montreal Black Film Festival, the National Anthropology and History Institute (INAH), the Vitala Group (London), Pietro Fiorentini de México, Pronatura, Hutchinson Seal de México, the Center for Scientific Research and Further Education in Ensenada (CICESE) and the Autonomous University of Baja California (UABC).

I have an eye for detail and take great pride in providing a polished text tailored to your needs, in UK/US English, Mexican Spanish or French French. I look forward to working with you - click here to contact me.
