About me
Born and educated in Barcelona, Spain, my professional voyage took me from England to the US, France and Germany, and provided me with an extensive knowledge of each language and culture I came in touch with. During this 12+ year long life abroad, I honed the skills necessary to become an excellent games localization/QA specialist, project manager as well as consultant.

With over 8 years on my shoulders in the game localization industry, I have been employed in-house by big bosses in this field such as Blizzard Entertainment (France), Square Enix (London) and Nintendo of Europe (Germany).

Additionally, I had the opportunity to act as in-house Localization and QA Manager for Dragon Nest Europe ( leading Korean, English, German, French and Spanish Localization and Testing teams.

I am currently a freelance localization specialist and a part-time university instructor in a Video Games degree. At the same time, I also provide assistance to games companies looking for globalization/internationalization.

Feel free to contact me for further information:

Life is just a game, enjoy!
