About me
I have recently worked on requests for a second opinion regarding medical problems and have also worked in marketing for a big Spanish fashion company who were very happy with my translations.

I have a good knowledge of Tourism, Art, Theatre, Music & Construction terminology in both Spanish and English. I am also very fluent, almost to native level in Spanish as I have lived in Spain for 30 years where I use Spanish on a daily basis with my family.

- I have translated tourism texts for Zamora, Andalusia and other regions of Spain as well as Comics, books on comics and literature.

- I have also translated a book on Christian Art in Byzantine Syria and have done some legal translating of contracts, wills, etc.

- I have knowledge of technical translations too, both architectural, construction, machinery (for packing food such as coffee, etc), and water pumps.

- I have also done agricultural translations and recently translated the yet to be published book "Horticulture in Spain" by the SECH in Cordoba.

- I have done a variety of translations over the past five years including websites on cancer and other topics
