Spanish to English: Interview with an Author and Literary Prize Winner General field: Art/Literary Detailed field: Poetry & Literature
Source text - Spanish Exacto. La provincia es un personaje más. La clave y la razón de todo es que el lector pueda sentir la inquietud por venir a conocer esa ciudad o provincia sobre la que está leyendo. Intento separar la trama negra y el desenlace policial, la vida de los personajes y sus trayectorias, y después el territorio como personaje imprescindible.
Translation - English Exactly. The province is another character. The key point, and the reason for writing about Castellón, is that the reader can experience a yearning to get to know the city or province that he or she is reading about. I try to separate the dark plot and the ending, the life of the characters and their course, and subsequently, the region as an essential character.

I trained as a Teacher of English as a Second Language and continued on to take the Business Extension, in Barcelona (2009). My work meant that I could be teaching English at Mango Head Office one day, and the next day teaching footballers preparing to move outside Spain. Gradually, I began to take on more writing and translation work, and so - fast forward to today and my love of language means I work as a Freelance content and copywriter, editor, proofreader, and translator on a variety of interesting projects. Each project is unique, and I enjoy writing for clients who want me to work on theirs, whether creating compelling, persuasive content for those wishing to change or update their online and offline information; text, interviews, articles, information brochures, reports, general or technical information - or for anyone requiring technical, in-depth documention. Anything that requires translation from Spanish (Castellano or Latin American) into
English (British or US); soft-editing, proofreading, grammar, spellchecking, and
final eye suggestions before publishing. Highly competent at
understanding briefs and able to work to tight deadlines. Each category of writing provided in the appropriate tone of voice, and exceptional service and attention to detail is guaranteed. I am also used to conducting in-depth research and fact-checking, should it be required. Projects large or small undertaken.
