I am a French native speaker with a a bachelor's degree in English with Spanish and Economics. Ever since I started training in translation, back in my bachelor's degree years, I have never stopped translating, mostly for work reasons.
I also have a strong insight in both English and Spanish cultures. I have lived for four years in the UK. During those years, I obtained a PostGraduate Certificate in Education from Oxford Brookes University and worked as a French and Spanish teacher in a secondary school.

But my real passion in life is gastronomy and all the fields related to it: food processing, nutrition and tourism (my grandparents were all farmers so this must have something to do with it, somehow...). I have been lucky enough to follow a culinary translation course at AulaSic (Barcelona). This training went beyond the culinary side and covered different aspects: recipes, menus, marketing, literature, food-processing and intellectual property. It also went beyond the exercice of translation and covered the correction, revision and terminology side of the culinary translation in order to be able to offer a very complete service to customers. I have really enjoyed this course and I am really looking forward to work more in that field.
Finally, I also have some personal interests: travelling, reading, art and cooking! Obviously...
