I have just completed my final year of
studies in University College Dublin where I received a first-class honours
degree in International Modern Languages, which included both Spanish and
Italian studies. Throughout my studies, I have acquired great knowledge and
experience in translation and interpretation, covering areas such as, literary,
legal and technical. This has allowed me to develop and nurture my passion and
knowledge for not only languages and culture but also translation.
Throughout my Erasmus year I was fortunate
enough to study in one of Spain’s leading universities in translation and
interpretation studies, Universidad Pablo de Olavide Seville. This university
and its courses enabled me to further my knowledge and acquire new skills in
different areas of translation like, medical, scientific, business and

I am currently a participant in the highly
sought-after applied literary translation program with Dalkey Archive Press

My role consists of composing, editing, and proofreading translations. This
