  • Get help with terminology and resources
  • Learn more about translation / improve my skills
  • Improve my productivity



I am a professional translator and Spanish/Catalan native speaker living in Barcelona. I am also a self-taught photographer specialising in portraiture.

I have been translating from EN/DE to ES/CA for over 15 years for both agencies and direct clients including Xerox, HP, KBA and many more. Along with wide experience in the printing industry (including translation of press releases, UI strings, websites and newsletters), I have also worked for major European PR agencies in a wide variety of specialization fields, but mostly tech and marketing related.

I have 5 kids and work part time as a photographer, so my availability is limited. Delivering quality work is my top priority and I'd rather decline a project I do not feel comfortable with.
